Day 345 - Bookshelves and morning sun

A beautiful morning, with the sun streaming into our dining room. I originally starting taking pictures to try to capture the way the bright sun was illuminating the glass beads and green sheer curtains on the window itself. It was this photo of the bookshelves, however, that caught my eye when I transferred the shots onto the computer.

Strong light like this always creates drama. I like the strong contrast it makes these shelves and their contents, with strong lines between shadow and light. I had to play with the exposure a bit to get this right: the light meter kept getting fooled by the differences across the composition of the frame.
