Felt Like Hogwarts In Pittsburgh

The Cathedral of Learning is on Pitt's campus.  I've seen it plenty of times but never been inside.  I had no idea how cool it was in there.  It's older, having been built in the first half of the last century.  The first floor feels like the inside of a castle like Hogwarts from the Harry Potter movies.  There are benches and tables everywhere full of students studying.  Give them some robes and have a few ghosts floating around it and it could have been a scene from the book.  I can't imagine I'm the first one to try to make this connection.

The image below was shot hand held, relatively high ISO, three exposures combined as usual.  What's interesting to me is the lens flare which occurred naturally.  I've only seen that in direct sunlight before.
