I love to read and have done so since I was old enough to hold a book on my own. I have lived in Germany--wish I was there now to visit and enjoy my please of reading here. Excellent shot.
A beautiful glowing image of dynamic people moving through a static storage of books.
This was an unusually fun image to view on a smaller sized display where the page's ads pushed the image down so low that only the top floor and single staircase is initially visible. If the image is slowly scrolled up, the background of each floor's bookcase acts a bit like a single flip book animation frame. The effect makes it feel like the people are moving up a single staircase.
Looks like a slice of a futuristic city. Very interesting and so many aspects take your attention, you can spend a while here, just like a library. Fascinating picture!
A photograph of three interior floors of a library building pretty much assures that the composition guideline of a grid of thirds will be observed.
Very chilly lighting. No wonder all the patrons are wearing winter attire.
@Adedotun Ajibade ha I was trying for ages to think of what made this shot so familiar... you hit the nail on the head :)
