The Sweet Serenity Of Books... by 

“The love of learning, the sequestered nooks, And all the sweet serenity of books.” – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I was going through my old files and found a few images that I thought I might upload…
This shot was taken while exploring a beautiful secondhand book store in Glen Innes….
My friend loves poetry so she was enjoying the treasure she found !! I also love to read so we were in heaven !!!

    That’s great, Carol…really nicely done! So perfect in black and white and it’s good you utilized a deep depth of field as, being able to see all those books, adds to the imagery….your friend just looks like she is in a world of her own enjoying that book of poetry…

  • It was a wonderful time…Exploring through the books …looking for hidden gems :) xx
