    I had the VERY unique opportunity to be able to get my camera and equipment into the Salem, MA Superior Courthouse today. (I'm still trying to figure out if this is where the witch trials occurred... I'm not certain, but it's most certainly a dark and creepy place, regardless.) :)

    I could only shoot the library today (working on getting in a bit deeper), but I could honestly have spent a MONTH in the library alone. I tried to be good and constrained my stay to an hour so as not to wear out my welcome. :)

    I got several shots and intend to share them, but this was the first one that caught my eye.

    C&C welcome, of course.

    Well, I don't have any idea what I'm looking at.

    Obviously, a wall and ceiling but I don't get the library part. And I can't figure out if it's a round room or distortion from a super-wide lens.

    Maybe it will make more sense with the other shots.

    hehe, I kinda didn't want to explain what it was because I figured it would take away from it somewhat...

    And yeah, of all the shots, this one DOESN'T scream library. :)

    Many of my followup ones will, though.

    Plus it looks like it's got some humidity problems and that doesn't say library either to me.

    Hmmm, perhaps a stairway wall into the basement? Better yet a cell block?

    Interesting, but I don't think it really conveys the creepiness that it probably should.

    Can't wait to see the rest.

    Remind me never to go to that library...

    Well, you know, back then, if you read the wrong book they would throw you in a cell :lmao:

    Keep in mind this is the SALEM MA courthouse law library... as in "Witch Trials" Salem MA.

    So, yeah, odds are someone DID read the wrong book and was VERY likely tossed in a cell.

    Ok, this is the roof and wall above a spiral staircase between first and second levels of the library.
