I love bookshops....so does this bloke apparently..
thanks for looking
Paradise, albeit in confined quarters. So, you climbed on one of those little step-ladders? Perfect.
Well, what an intriguing image. Why is the man standing side on to the books instead of facing them like ordinary folk do? Is it the perspective that makes him look squat and round, or is he really like that? And what a great bookshop - it looks like a maze. Love this.
Thanks...he really was that round Chris, lol.
A place to spend hours looking and searching for those special books. Great image............Sandy
The weight (real or implied) of the round man leaning on the shelf combines with the super-wide optic to suggest the impending fate of the house of cards . . .
Superb b&w candid, needs an award if it's only mine. Voilà!
A fascinating image, wall to wall books - heaven!
Reminds me a little of one of my fave' books 'The Shadow Of The Wind' by Carlos Ruiz Zafon
Hidden in the heart of the old city of Barcelona is the 'cemetery of lost books', a labyrinthine library of obscure and forgotten titles that have long gone out of print. To this library, a man brings his 10-year-old son Daniel one cold morning in 1945. Daniel is allowed to choose one book from the shelves and pulls out LA SOMBRA DEL VIENTO by Julian Carax.
But as he grows up, several people seem inordinately interested in his find. Then, one night, as he is wandering the old streets once more, Daniel is approached by a figure who reminds him of a character from LA SOMBRA DEL VIENTO, a character who turns out to be the devil. This man is tracking down every last copy of Carax's work in order to burn them. What begins as a case of literary curiosity turns into a race to find out the truth behind the life and death of Julian Carax and to save those he left behind.
Many thanks for the UA Bill
That sounds like a good read Sarah...maybe this bloke was the devil after all..hope he doesn't want image rights!
I think we should start a gallery for weight restricted areas. http://www.ephotozine.com/user/poochie-41123/gallery/photo/inflationary-measures...
