February 2008 photo roundup

It’s been a week of photography around here, for those of you who aren’t following the stream-of-consciousness log over at solecist.net. When I came to work yesterday morning, Melissa popped her head in the door and said, “Did you see those clouds on the way in?” I nodded; the dark, billowing shapes had caught my eye, too.

But Melissa had keys in her hand, and a plan in mind. “Come on. Let’s go to the roof. Bring your camera.”

I came back with only three usable photos, but they were three photos I hadn’t expected to get. For dark and moody, here’s a shot of the First Baptist Church’s bell tower, one of the most recognizable parts of the Huntsville skyline:

The rocket-inspired steeple of the First Baptist Church on Governors Drive is one of the most recognizable features in the downtown Huntsville skyline.  (Shot from the roof of the Huntsville Public Library.)

I also got two shots of the Huntsville skyline that, while not terribly inspired, are also very different from any other downtown photos currently on flickr:

I also added four more shots to my oh-so-slowly-growing Library 365 set:

Brian, showing the wry chuckle of acceptance when the photographer goes for the quick and dirty shot. The Friends of the Library are readying stacks of books for tomorrow's 25-cent sale.
Librarian, yes, but phones and computers are part of library life too. One of the largest sets of books available in today's sale.

But, then again, now that I think about it, I haven’t mentioned the ones I tossed in last week, from the English Author Tea:

I asked each librarian to pose with the china they contributed.  This was not the kind of photo I expected to get in return. A flute trio performed at the English Author Tea.  This haphazard shot proved to be one of my favorites.

Or the one I got of a check presentation:

While waiting to do a quick PR photo shoot, I caught this photo of the check for the posed shot.  Moments like these are what end up on MY version of Library 365.
