from deep within the library (friday foto finder: books)


This week’s friday foto finder challenge was to share a photo of books Considering how many books we have in our home (where the number is in the thousands), I have surprisingly few photos of books. I’m sure that books appear in various photos in which the clutter of our house is visible, but I’d rather not go there. Instead, I poked through my photo library to find this photo taken in a library. I took this in 2010, whilst in the swing of my participation in Project 365 (a year of commitment to daily photo-taking). When I did that project, I was playing around with a bunch of monthly themes. When I took this particular one, I was working on incorporating motion blur. Hence the ghostly hand. When I saw that I took this photo 3 years ago to the day, I knew that this was the photo I should post.

To check out more books, pay a visit to your local library. To check out more pictures of books, pay a visit to the fff blog.

  1. That’s a great photo, and I really like that ghostly hand. :D Seems so fitting for a library for some reason. :) Our local library closed many years ago now, and I haven’t been to any library since. I used to go there a lot, and take my children, too. They loved going there, but they didn’t like reading themselves, so I read to them. :)

  3. This is a fantastic photo. I love books, and photos of books, and the perspective effect. The ghostly hand makes it even better. I kind of love the idea of ghosts wandering the libraries, choosing what books to read at night after the library closes.

  4. Oh, I love it! And yes, my photo was of a bookshop :)
