I’m posting this image simply as photograph I’m fond of, as well as a visual commentary on our current covid-19 locked down situation. Leaving aside the current corona virus pandemic, I like the way the line on the floor leads to the locked gate with its sign. The leading lines are nice and I like the way the light fades in the distance.
Switching to the photograph as commentary, currently the world is in a dark place. The end of these hard times are dimly in view but a clear vision of what’s ahead still is far from clear.
Being dyslexic I don’t read that many books. I tend to be more an image person. My wife, on the other hand, devours books and loves to go to book stores and other gatherings of the printed word-world. I’m glad to tag along on the journeys as they tend to produce good opportunities for candid photographs. The pictures below are of Boston’s annual Antiquarian Book Fair. It was a gathering of some pretty rare items, both printed and human.
