photo or not

This vertical panorama (vertorama) is composed of 7 HDR Photos and shows the main portion of the Carmo Chapel. If you walked through Tuesday’s Photo, The Convent – (Ruínas do Carmo), and went through the door, this is what you would find. Well, truthfully you would find this right past the giant “NO PHOTOGRAPHY” Sign.

Shhhhh! Don’t tell anyone but you’re not allowed to take photos in here. Oops…

After scoping the place out and not seeing anyone around, I quickly fired off a ton of exposure brackets. In the absolute silence of this place, you could hear the camera clicks reverberating off the walls. The sounds cascaded around from room to room casting multiple echos. With my camera set to rapid fire, it was quite literally a barrage of sound. I though for sure someone would notice, but no. Nobody did.

I guess sometimes you have to bend the rules a little bit.
