It is very interesting to know that famous monuments can be seen in an interactive manner in which are trying to get close to what you really want and see the details.
Maybe follow up to what Dan Brown wrote in his books.
i find it hard to think that it was possible in those day that some one would be able to point with sutch clarity
When I went in, I was expecting the same thing. However almost everyone was taking pictures, so after deliberating for a bit I just did it too. The guards were completely resigned and just stood chatting with each other. The lights were dimmed (it looks even brighter in these photos because of the low f/# I was shooting on) so just about everybody without DSLRs and fast lenses were getting naught but blurry garbage.
How were you able to take this many photos without being busted? When I was there, I remember the guards constantly saying 'No Photos'
