Through The Lens Thursday is a one-year photography project, where every week, my project partner, Greta of GFunkified and I, will post a picture (or pictures) we have taken based on a prompt. Our hope is that together, we can teach and learn from each other, stay accountable to our goal of improving our skills, and hopefully, be taking some gorgeous photographs.
This week’s prompt is “Books”.

There is something magical about bookstores. It was one of my favourite places to go to when I was a little girl.
It’s still one of my favourite go-to places now. On the rare occasion I get a couple of hours to myself, I always head to a bookstore.
I cover all sections of the store.
The toddler and preschooler shelves to see what books my boys might like.
I run my fingers along the spines, I especially love revisiting the books of my girlhood, like these Enid Blyton classics.

I make my way slowly through the fiction section, from A to Z.
Then I spend an inordinate amount of time looking at memoirs, and wondering why someone like Justin Bieber would be interesting.
So I head back to my beloved fiction.

I almost always leave with a book or two in hand.
(What do you think of my ‘books’ photos? This IS a photography exercise, so I would appreciate any critique!)
Next week’s prompt: Together
