There’s gotta be at least one decent museum near you.

yeah, there are a few, but nothing as nice as the Met.

I agree with James. This is very cool. What an amazing sarcophagus.

I tried photographing some relief sculptures in Paris last month – I wanted to get the sense of humanity you achieve here, but totally failed. I love this image; it’s what I was trying to achieve.
I did a double-take first time, he looks so real.

Wicked cool! Are you allowed you use a flash there?

Absolutely not, which I guess I can understand, although their defense is a bit strange: “The flash may degrade the ancient art.” Not sure if that’s a scientifically sound explanation. Anyway, good thing I don’t really use flash much. 🙂

Light accelerates the degrading process. Which is why the Mona Lisa is in a special dark room with a particular light bulb pointed at it. It even has a special heat sensitive glass protecting it.
Love the Art, your good at finding the right angles to shoot from.

Yeah, I finally looked it up. Definitely potential damage from flash (a significant combination of light and heat). Of course, I rarely use one, so the policy has never bothered me.
