Weeding

Today’s image was made last year during my One Pinhole A Day project. It is a very long exposure, in which I placed the camera on the book truck and exposed the film while the books piled up on the cart as I weeded them. I think it’s kind of a fun look into one of the more mundane librarian tasks. I liked the image so much that I made a print of it and will hang it in my little “mini show” at the library.

OK, so I couldn’t think of a song to go with this photo. So I did a search for “Songs about libraries” and I found this great list from New York Public Library. Lo and Behold! There is a song about libraries by a band called Camera Obscura!!! I’ve never heard this song, and I don’t know what this band is like but It’s kismet. It’s going on the blog.
