Welcome to my 2020 52 Photo Challenge and thanks for dropping by. This is my 7th TP 52 Challenge. Why I’m still taking part after all these years? Well, the short answer is I like taking pictures but occasionally I actually enjoy going out to capture photographic images too.

I have learned a lot over the years from fellow 52’ers here from my very first theme to last year’s Out-Take post. This is all due to continuous feedback, comments, suggestions, critiques and constructive criticisms. I hope this year is going to be the same.

I'll try & leave feedback for others but have little technical knowledge so critique is not something I feel comfortable giving.

I’m sure some 52 old-timers recognise this building as I have used it for this challenge many times before.

The Sir Duncan Rice Library is the main academic library for the University of Aberdeen. It was designed by Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects was conceived to mark the ice and light of the north.

The reason I picked this building for this week’s Local Interest theme is that the university just celebrated its 525th ‘birthday’. Aberdeen University was founded in 1494 and at one time the City of Aberdeen has more universities than the whole of Englandshire! :giggle:

Thanks, Robert. The atrium is even more interesting and I was planning to go inside for some shots but the library was closed for the Christmas holiday.

That is a wonderful, photogenic building Stan, and very well captured too!:clap:
The angle of #1 is spot on - very striking and the light hitting it is superb!
#3 is amazing, what a great angle, I love the almost abstract nature of it - excellent!
Great start to the challenge Stan, can't wait to see what you have in store for us over the coming weeks/months!(y)

Thanks, Gareth for the kind comments.

Don't set your hope too high, it's downhill from me from now on!

We may have seen some of those views once or twice before eh Stan :)
I certainly prefer the low perspective view to the straight on one, it has more impact.
Thanks, Tim. Agree with you on that and the evening setting sun adds warmth to the image too.

Cheers, Dominic.

Got a few ideas for this week's theme but in the end, resort to Mrs rpn's help again. This is one of her Pleasurable pastime playing Sudoku.

I set the aperture to the maximum at f1.4 to blur out both the foreground and background and to have just the main subject (book) in focus however, I missed the focus even so slightly. I like to have the tip of the pen in sharp focus but at such a wide aperture, the depth of field is very limited.
