Today I have a different sort of photoshoot for you. While I was taking pictures for my Day in the Life post, I found a bunch of interesting subjects in our library and just kept snapping as I walked around. 😛 I usually prefer nature photography, but it was fun to capture the texture of man-made things and the character of our old farmhouse from the inside. I hope you enjoy the tour!
Even though we have have bookshelves in other rooms, this is the “official” library because of the two big built-in bookshelves we moved in from our old house, and the sofa + chairs for reading on.
Dad’s set of Great Books looks very library-ish, doesn’t it?
We recently found this model ship at an auction. Isn’t it neat? It fits well with the old-fashioned vibe in this room, even though the rest of the house is more of a modern farmhouse style. Megan made a picture to go here with part of the “no frigate like a book” poem. 🙂
I love the details on this ship! Also this picture!
Of course I had to take pictures of the piano. Something about them is just very photogenic, even when they’re plain.
I love how you can see the letters reflected in the keys!
Sadly, it’s not the best quality piano, but it still works. 😛
Mirror shots are so much fun.
I love these figurines. ❤
Tom the cat was laying around in the way while I took pictures, so…
We also got this neat chest from the same auction where we got the ship! I love the texture and character. Doesn’t it look like something you’d dig up on the beach or find in a cave?
I have no clue why the “4” is there. A mystery…
This lamp stand is a little strange, but makes for an interesting subject. 😛
I like this one. 🙂 I’ve showed this gallery wall before, I think; it’s mostly composed of old letters we found in a log cabin on our farm.
Mom also included a few extended-family pictures among the letters. This one looks like something from an old book!
I can’t believe the beautiful handwriting on some of the letters and ledgers! It’s so pretty that it’s hard to read. 😛
I hope you enjoyed looking around our library! It’s quite a cozy room although I mostly go in it when I play piano. 🙂
Would you like to see more indoor photography like this? Which photo was your favorite? Do you play an instrument?
Thanks so much for reading, dears, and have a lovely day!
