28587 - US Constitution

This is a photo of (the original) US Constitution, in the National Archives. The photo quality is poor, but the
light is dim, and no flash is allowed because it could further fade the document. This photo was made hand-held as
I stopped for a quick look from the long line of people wanting to see it. The white area at the bottom is my reflection.

It is SOO dark in there! ISO jacked up, I was amazed that I still couldn't get a decent shutter speed. Nice job indeed with the photo. I suggest running it through a noise-reducer.
