The interior of the new Calgary Library is wonderful! Since the library opened I have seen tons of pictures of the outside and inside and every little corner of the place. I really enjoyed a lot of the pictures I had seen and wanted to get a shot of my own. I didn’t want to just take a picture that other people had already shot over and over again. This required a little walking around and a lot of test shots. I made my way to each corner of the staircases and took a look through my viewfinder, but each time I wasn’t convinced my shot would be very unique. After going all the way to the top and back to the bottom I was passing by this buffalo sculpture and thought that incorporating it into my shot would be a nice touch. So I started shooting photos, but still I wasn’t convinced I had anything. Then I idea to lay on the floor get low enough the include the buffalo and the skylight hit me and after a little laying around I had my shot!
Some days you go out to shoot a photo that hasn’t been done and it just doesn’t work out, then other days you end up laying on your back in the middle of a public space and everything you wanted in your photo comes together! I love it when a shot works out they way you’d hoped it would.
Thanks for stopping by, Rob
