Dark

Montpellier 2013 017

This is the Roman grain store in Narbonne, and usually I would take it with flash. But, see under the cut, not so much. Besides, the point of the space (unless you're really, really into Roman brick) is that it's a dark underground ancient space, which they're using to display what remnants of Roman statuary survive in the city. It's atmospheric, with a soundtrack of dripping water, money changing hands, and court Latin. And dark. As you can see :o)

*nods* excellent use of prompt!
Thanks!
Ooooh, *very* atmospheric. It would be fascinating to be there alone, in the dark, imagining life as it was there.
It really is! To think I wasn't planning to visit it on my day trip, and mostly came in because I was slightly lost... Very glad I made it.
Oh, so much better without the flash!! It looks just like a boring empty cellar when you can see it all clearly...
Doesn't it? I bet that's what the medieval people who kept using it thought of the place, too.
The one without flash does give a much better idea of what the place feel like. It is a really atmospheric shot.
Thanks! Definitely the one I'd use to show someone what it's like.
Yes, much more mysterious sans flash.
Isn't it!
I'd love to explore that...
It's a great place. Not too much, and open to rambling about absently.
Great choice for the prompt! I can well imagine the atmosphere there.
