A Black and White Blur

Here is something a little different – a blur photo in black and white.

Chestnut Hill College Logue Library, September, 2017.

A couple of photos from Logue Library at Chestnut Hill College. One is of a light fixture on the ceiling; all I did was point the camera at it and say “Hold still…”

The other one is a blur photo, where I have taken the camera and swooped it across the scene.

These were done in March and April, 2017.

Zoom Through the Library Fast As You Can

Some more of those blur photos – the ones where I take the camera and sweep it across the scene. These photos are of books at the library at Chestnut Hill College and were taken in April and May, 2017.

Library Scenes at High Speed

I am fascinated by blur photography these days (I don’t know if that is a name for it or not, but that’s what I call it). I’ve taken quite a few photos in this style and in this place – look here and here if you are interested.

More photos from Logue Library at Chestnut Hill College, 3rd floor, where I do my poetry marathons.

I will venture away from this location the next time I am in the library, I think, and see what I can do to some other parts of the building.

Drawing a Place I Visit Every Week

Once a week I set aside time for poetry-writing. Of course I write at other times, but this appointment ensures that I refocus each week on poetry. Originally it was meant to be just a couple of hours, but I’ve gradually increased the time I spend and I’ve found I spend almost the whole day on it.

Sessions of the Installment Plan Poetry Marathon, as I call it, take place at Logue Library at Chestnut Hill College, Philadelphia, PA. They are kind enough to welcome me, a person with no affiliation with the college, to use their space. I’ve written a lot of work in the library before this year, but now I visit each week. I love it.

If you’d like to read more about the Marathon or my poetry, I welcome you, and you could start with this week’s update here. But what I want to show you here is a scene from my life at the library. I usually write and/or show something about the library itself, and this week I drew my workspace. Take a look.

My desk (I sit here every week, so I say it’s mine) on the 3rd floor of Logur Library.

 

More Speed Reading

More scenes of the third floor stacks at Logue Library, Chestnut Hill College, in that speed reading style of photography – otherwise known as waving the camera across the scene really fast right after you click the button.

I was standing next to the window, eating my peanut butter sandwich (I’ve certainly made myself at home, haven’t I?) on the empty third floor on Friday, March 17 – when I thought of the earlier photos I made in this manner and decided to do it again.

Hey, why not?
