Les Catacombes - Paris 2012
400 ft below the surface of Paris exists one of the scariest and coolest places on earth. The bones of over 6 million people are still interred here. Now they are organized and placed respectfully, but in the beginning the officials of Paris were just cleaning up the surface of the city by dumping the remains from full graveyards into the old rock quarries that built the city. Spooky! Great place to pop the question to your girlfriend!
All of the photos in this set were 30 second 200 ISO exposures. If you ever get to go, don’t forget the remote and/or tripod!

ACOUSTIC SOUND SENSOR, DESIGN AND SPECIFICATIONS
The acoustic gunfire sensor has been deployed by a number of organizations throughout the world in those urban areas where it might otherwise be difficult to implement and maintain a pervasive security presence. Utilizing fairly rudimentary DSP algorithms, the sensor will trigger if any sound matching the profile of a gunshot occurs within the sensor’s detection radius; field tests in Hong Kong have shown them to be 88% accurate, with an overall 12% decrease in crime within six months. Cheap and easy to install, acoustic gunfire sensors can be fitted to buildings, lamp posts, or any other free standing structure…
ALL HONG KONG MJ12 PERSONNEL
Hong Kong is a unique environment for MJ12 personnel and provides a number of challenges that all members should be aware of on a daily basis. Currently, only tenuous ties exist between MJ12 and local authorities — though MJ12 is working to resolve that situation — and consequently, police and security cannot be expected to understand the special nature of MJ12’s charter. Agents, operatives, security, and other personnel should adhere closely to the Confidentiality Guidelines outlined in your handbook.
One key factor in police response is the use of “acoustic gunfire sensors” scattered throughout much of Hong Kong: cheap and effective, these sensors use DSP circuitry to alert authorities to non-supressed (i.e. not silenced) gunfire. That enables police to quickly minimize threat situations in an efficient manner. While these sensors can be disabled, Central Operations does not recommend this course of action, but rather a considered evaluation of any tactical situation to avoid local intervention.
