Taking a photographic image is easy. Telling a story with it is the hard part. This photo is of the staircase in the Harvard Coop bookstore in Harvard Square. I was drawn to it because of the myriad elements it contains. Books, the graceful metal staircase, people and posters all jostle each other for prominence. But that is exactly its problem. It has no coherent story line. It’s a cacophony I couldn’t tame with a story line I couldn’t find.
