Artist's Description

Few years back I needed to get a copy of the magazine that was printed with one of my works. The only place I can get it at that time was State Library of New South Wales in Sydney. I knew the place, it is a modern glass building which you can see right through when you are walking on the street. What I did not know is that it had few wings. And one of them, where my magazine would be, is The Mitchell Wing. I knew that building too, it is next to the main library, but it looks so different that I never thought it is also a part of the complex. Grandiose on itself with sandstone columns I though it is a museum of sorts as it looks quite similar to the Art Gallery of New South Wales. I never paid enough attention to find out what was it exactly. Now, when I finally entered it I was stunned by the interior. Enormous room with book shelfs going up to the glass roof and so quiet you can hear your every step.
For years I would be thinking about coming back there one day with a good camera, a tripod, wide lens and taking few bracketing exposures to combine them into a HDR. I finally got a chance during my recent visit and this is the picture you see. I had the tripod with me, but I could not be brave (or crazy) enough to rock up on the stairs there and start taking pictures in the middle of this magic. Hence, this photo is taken handheld through a glass window from an outside corridor with all the magic undisturbed. I think it came out very good quality wise.
