Day 100 — Friends of the Library

While I was at the gym today, I noticed activity in the courtyard between the gym and the city library next door. It was a book sale. So, after the workout I wandered out and took some photos; one of the volunteers was thrilled that I was taking photos and asked me to send them so they could post them on their website. I also found a few interesting books, several on photography and I came home with 6 books for $2.

Since this is Day 100, I decided to set the ISO to 100, the shutter speed to 1/100 and set the lens at 100. The ISO and shutter speed were easy to do, but the lens seems not to have such finite settings; I got either 95mm or 105mm. Then I realized that I was being ridiculous and started taking a few photos. Because all the books were in cardboard boxes, I couldn’t get long rows of interesting books. So I took a few of books inside boxes. This box of language books was my favorite because of the colors and the shadow which I think gives the composition some interest.
