The Library Photo Project

I had an idea today.  I’m not sure if it’s been done before, but that doesn’t matter.  I really like libraries.  But I also love architecture.  Many libraries in the world are quite beautiful.  Many are classically designed, while many are very modern.  So I had an idea that will probably get myself into a lot of trouble with time management.  Actually, I don’t think this will take up a lot of my time, as I’ll mainly be gathering photos (public domain, those available for sharing via Creative Commons, and those that I take myself) and posting them in a blog.  Yes, this blog.  No, I won’t start a new blog for this, I already have enough.

Oh, I didn’t tell you my idea?  Well, I thought I’d start something called The Library Photo Project on this blog.  It’ll have it’s own little tab up on the menu at the top of the page.  I want to showcase the best, and sometimes the worst, architecture that libraries can show us.  What do you think?

Here, I’ll get it started, though not officially.

There, that’s nice and easy.  Nice building, isn’t it?  That’s an example of a very modern library.  Want more?  Well, check these out:
