      Thanks for the visits folks.

      RJBME: It's been such a long time since I have seen that movie - were there scenes from this library?

      Scenes from the exterior and main reading room (South hall) were shot for "Ghostbusters"

      A great shot Sai. That room looks so empty of people though so you caught it at a good time.

      Wow your exposure and composition is very nice! Much better than mine :) Beautiful!

      Needs to be available in wall size photo. As is, it's somehow captivating. I guess it's always so for a path disappearing off into the distance. Still ... cool in such a different use of the technique.
