Pt 3, Pr 4, Ex1 – Parallel Perspective – An interior view.

Not necessarily an interior, however, it was an enclosed walkway that had some nice arches running down one side that all met in the middle to create another set of archways running down through the passage way forming a perfect scene to show one point perspective.
