#emptyROM in the Dinosaur Room!

On Wednesday I was one of the lucky 10 or so people who got accepted to participate in #emptyROM. The premise is simple: get to see and photograph the dinosaur rooms before the museum opened! I was so excited when I saw the post on the ROM’s instagram, so I knew I had to try to get in.

Look at that! No one is in the shot except for the beautiful dinosaur!
We got to hear cool stories, like this dinosaur was discovered by a student on her first day, and the dig instructor was occupied by his own stuff, figuring she wouldn’t find anything important. Oops.

It was so awesome to take all the pictures (I had over a hundred in the one hour) with no one in the way.

Just me and a t-rex!

This was one of my favourite shots from the event. I love how the line of the wing matches the architecture!

It was such an awesome way to start my day, and I’m so thankful for the surprise afterward: a free membership for a year! How crazy!
