Here's two views of my local public library. When I was a kid, I loved to go to the library because I loved books. I also loved to go to the library because it was always a special outing with my father, who also loved books. We would spend hours there. On other, much less frequent occasions, he would take me to an actual book store . . . B. Dalton Booksellers in the (now defunct) Fashion Square Mall. I was only able to buy one book, and I agonized over my selection. These thoughts came rushing back to me when I saw this book, which I definitely read as a kid, checked out of the public library:
I thought about publishing this post next Sunday, as part of Sian's Storytelling Sunday, but I've got something else planned. Will you be telling a tale next weekend?
This post is obviously part of the 2012 Photography Scavenger Hunt, item #13 a library. I only have four left to post, and two of them have already been found.
As a reminder, the scavenger hunt ends on September 21, the last official day of summer, so there's still almost four weeks left. I will publish a concluding post that weekend and ask everyone to check in with their final tally.
To help keep you motivated, here are a few interesting links:
Cheri's has quite a few finds in this post, but the string band at the end is priceless!
Melissa's post with finds from Taos, New Mexcio give a very strong sense of place.
Linda Mann offers some seashore finds, including a surfer's clothesline in this post.
Jo Murray published all of her finds at once.
Deb finished up her hunt with this beautiful bride.
Louis has lots of finds in this post, but my favorite is the person dressed as angel.
Julia offers up a lot of atmosphere in the two finds in this post.
Amanda Jane just started playing this month, and she's charging through the list. I love her self-portrait in this post; and
Alison stumbled across this very sweet angel, while Jane went on a mission and found several beautiful ones.
There are lots and lots of other posts out there. It has really warmed my heart to see so many people participating!!! If you are one of them, don't forget to mark your calendar for the end of summer, so you can come back and leave me your tally.
