Shoot XXII - "Bapst Library Revisited"

OR, it was! Carol, Elaine, Peyton, Milt, Mike Di., Beth, and Michelle knew as well! I was quite surprised when the gas attendant was adamant about me pumping my own gas! 

"Bapst Library"

I got an opportunity to return to Boston College's Bapst Library and could not miss out on it! This time I took my fisheye lens and had some fun walking around the iconic building.

This staircase needed to be captured with a wide angle and then converted into monochromatic. I think it succeeded on both parts!

Not only is the architecture within the Bapst a photographer's dream but their variety of stained glass windows kept me busy for quite some time! This series included notables from science, philosophy, religion, medicine, etc. Another room had windows that featured the crests of all of the Jesuit universities in the world!

The challenge was to get the right angle and the light.  

Thought for the week. . .

Found these most interesting outlooks on life:

The difference between genius and stupidity is 
that genius has its limits.

Here are some interesting facts about one of our fifty states. Do you know which one? This state boasts of:

Coming full circle back home in Massachusetts!

But, do you know where these famous places are within the Bay State?

The only place in the world where a boat can sail under a train driving under a car driving under an airplane?

If it were real it would hold 58,620 gallons of liquid

The signs along the Massachusetts Turnpike reading "x miles to Boston" refer to the distance from that point to the where?

The first U.S.Postal zip code in Massachusetts is 01001 is assigned to what town/city?

Leaving you with a smile, I hope. . .

So, I lied. . .

  The guy who fell onto an upholstery machine 
has fully recovered.

You are stuck with your debt 
if you can't budge it.

He broke into song 
because he couldn't find the key.

A calendar’s days are numbered.

He had a photographic memory 
which was never developed.

This wraps up my third year of blogging with you. 
Let's see what 2016 has in store for us?
