One of your weaker efforts, Paul. I don't really find this photo nearly as engaging as your other pictures.

Appreciate it.

Did you notice the young female face on the book jacket by her head, and the arrangement of her bag parallel to the books?

Well don't get me wrong, I don't think it's a bad photo. But compared to your usually very strong work, this is 'just' a lady looking at some books.

That particular book cover doesn't stand out, at least it doesn't for me.

I wonder if you cropped the photo to accentuate this...

I like the image without worrying about the details of the book covers. It captures a real human being doing something we all do - looking for a book we'd actually like to read (in the bargain section). Terrific slice of life shot, in my view.

A candid street capture.
Although not the most engaging, it projects a sense of city life.

Aren't we all jus' like books? When we are open with each other our experiences and stories pour forth. Many of us have more chapters than others.
