Many times, when we take pictures of people, we just go over and start snapping. Were only concerned about capturing nice pictures, capturing expressions for that moment, and then we go somewhere else to take other pictures...
But we forget that when were capturing the human emotion, we first need to understand it, to feel it, and before we can do that, we also need to understand and feel the environment "
Something tells me that if you agree with what Tinkertailor says in his post, you probably have an affinity with libraries. It's just my gut feel.
I'd like to think that libraries are repositories of stories captured in words. I also think that libraries (of the near future) ought to be places where new stories are created. But more of that later.
For now, go get yourself a cuppa, take a few sips and let the message sink in.
