Black and White Photograph of a hand-built wooden bookcase

I walk past the bookcase all the time, so much so that it merges into the background. Something brought it back into my conscious today and I allowed myself a little bit of pleasure in appreciating that I hadn’t done a bad job building it. I decided to celebrate by taking a picture, trying out my new 18mm lens in the process.

I could improve on the result, but to do so I’d need to use a tripod. That would allow me to reduce the iso for less image noise and stop-down the lens for a better depth of field.

However, it was only meant to be a quick snapshot, so I’ll just leave it as it is.
