The campus of the University of Washington (UW) in Seattle is a really beautiful place. I visit this place two or three times every year. There are so many interesting things to see here, not just because I am a student there. I will need several blog pages to describe what I have enjoyed seeing there, and Suzallo library is the best among all. It is the main library hall of UW, and it was constructed over a century ago. The interior of the reading hall on the second floor is wonderful and amazing. There are several old beautiful buildings in the campus, Suzallo library is my favorite. It is near the UW Quad, and also there is a pond nearby on the opposite side of the Quad. It is a reading hall for the students, but I have seen people from outside visiting. Look at their web site and learn the timings before you plan your visit. The library is closed when the University is closed during vacation times.
There are several photographic elements to discuss in this image. Most important among them is Symmetrical Balance, it is an interesting composition guideline that helped me get interesting pictures several times in the past. We can find symmetry in nature, and also in buildings and other architectural constructed by man. Reflection of objects in water or glass can create symmetry. An image that shows symmetry is interesting. Look for symmetry when you go out next time, and it is fun when you find some. If you are photographing inside the library, it is a quiet place, and the camera shutter can produce sound that can disturb the students. So, make sure to use the 'Quiet Mode' in your camera, which will make a less audible noise while you trip the shutter.
