Westminster Hall Baltimore

This is where Edgar Allan Poe is interred and where his memorial stands


and it is not far from the hospital where he died. I wish I could have gone inside but it was closed for rennovation. The light inside looks wonderful; and the space itself. I pressed my lens to the glass doors and snapped anyway.
The camera lens did not capture the shafts of light spilling into the space and it's a rather narrow angle on this impressive interior but you get some idea. I wanted to be inside testing the accoustics with a rousing chorus but it was not to be. Next time :)
