This unique building interior is a shot of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum located in Boston, Massachusetts. Various Italian locations were the inspiration for the construction, specifically Venice. You can view some Italian buildings in another shot of mine here, from the Grand Canal.
My wife and I visited Boston to go see Shen Yun and decided to stay for the weekend to sightsee. Having grown up in Massachusetts, I had been to Boston several times. Despite being a local, we still found new places that neither of us had visited. One of which, was this Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Throughout our travels, we have frequented various museums spanning various states and countries. I say that because this museum was surprisingly one of our favorites. It was as if the whole museum was art and not just the paintings on the walls. The courtyard contained a beautiful garden pictured here. Fortunately, the organization closed off the courtyard so visitors could not walk in the area. This is how I took photos without a bunch of people in them. Although the museum did not allow tripods, there is a way to get around this. Basically, you take a bunch of shots at a higher ISO and then bring them into Photoshop. You align all the layers, convert them to a smart object, and then select median blend mode. Voila, an easy way to get rid of excessive noise. Hope you like the results!
