ahhh, this is fast becoming my favourite place to shoot. an old second hand bookstore. 3rd story. i shoot at different times of the day to get different light. this day was overcast. i had to do a secret squirrel mission and open the blinds, shoot a few and drop them before staff came up to their office. theres a sign. pretty much says "dont!" sorry guys... but i love this bookstore. its my bookstore, it has that old smell, spec' upstairs. the old rickerty ladder on the runnings. sweet! i used to hang here years ago when i lived with my girl in paddo. found my dogs name in this book store. learnt about freud, dali, gardening(?), baroque. love it. my camera has brought me back here again. high five photography.

shot with my diana+.

    Petey... your diana shots have inspired me to dust off my holga and modify it to 35mm. I shot two rolls last week and are having them developed soon... I can't wait to see (and share) the results. Thank you so much.

    Petey... i love old bookstores too! they are like old friends or a favorite flannel shirt when it's cold outside. This photo is so perfect at capturing the alure of the aisle.

    why are you in there alone with the books after the place closed? j/k This is dark, intriquing...a very complex pic...very cool.

    Great light - the lift of the blinds was worth the risk
