Reading books is not dead

5 posts in this topic

Taken last summer at Edward's Gardens a large botanical garden and park here in Toronto.
I was just entering the garden grounds when I noticed a young woman sitting on a bench in front of the main building, engrossed in a book that she was reading.
I was attracted both by the scene and the rare sight of a young person engaged in a page and paper book, rather than an electronic device, and grabbed this shot.

Thanks Dallas,
There were so many things about his scene that I loved: The subject's pose, her delicate right hand, even her clothing, plus the wonderful light.
And despite the background being a window full of merchandise, it is unobtrusive enough not to detract from the subject.
