Most of my blog photos are shot at weekends. There’s a practical reason for that, of course: that’s when my photographer/husband, Professor M, is around to take pictures.
However, these photos were taken on a Friday.
More precisely, they were taken on a Friday afternoon, after work. Yes, this is what I wear to work. It really isn’t so different from what I wear at weekends…
Well, since we’re on full disclosure mode, I only worked till noon that day. But it was after a very long week. And I’d slept very little the night before and got up before 6 am. To say I was tired would be an understatement.
But I really wanted to see the new library, and I thought it would be the perfect location to try taking blog photos indoors. You know, big windows etc. And as there was still some daylight (sunset is just after 3), we decided to go for it.
Looking at the photos, you’d never guess it was actually quite crowded in the library that day. Trust me, it wasn’t easy to find an empty spot. As soon as we started taking photos, people seemed to appear out of nowhere and we had to wait for them to pass. That’s what it’s like shooting blog photos in a public place: you try to get that perfect shot while trying to avoid getting other people in the frame. That usually means shooting about 258 photos and then posting only 3 of them…
