This picture has some personal history for me. I first saw this room when I was a kid traveling with my parents. Dad took a slide but the there isn't a lot of light, he had a SEARS 35mm camera and there's a lot of vibration in the room. So his shot was, well let's just say it was kind of shaky.
So when I was there some 50 years later, I made sure I got a sharp picture. In fact, I took the tour specifically to get this shot.
There are millions upon millions versions of this picture out there. It's a stop on the tour. Some of you know I dislike taking the same shot as everyone else. But this is an exception. It has some history for me, I solved a technical problem that my Dad had, AND it checks a LOT of boxes as far as photo composition goes. It's now one of my all time favorites.
