Exciting News on the Photography Front!

Recently I submitted some images for a Downtown Portland photo contest.  One of the images I submitted was this one of the Multnomah County Library.  I was in an office building across the street up on the fourth floor, and I loved this view of the library building.


We are so lucky to have this resource in our community.  It was listed on the National Registry of Historic Places in 1979.

So what's the exciting news you ask?  I just received this email from the group holding the contest, the Portland Downtown Neighborhood Association:

I want to thank you for submitting photos for the recent Downtown Neighborhood Association calendar photo contest.  One of your photos was selected by our members as their favorite image and I want to confirm with you that it is alright to use the photo for the DNA 2013 calendar.  The photo is of the Mutnomah County Library through the leaves - the photo is really lovely.  

Cool!!  I can't tell you how many images I've submitted for various photo contests.  This is the first time one has been selected.  It'll be featured in their 2013 Calendar.  I'm so excited!

How exciting. That is such a beautiful library inside and out. I was disappointed though when they took out the mezzanine level when they had to fix the structure of the building. I always loved going in and looking down to see all the people reading below.

So excited for you! Its a great shot and looks like a lovely place to curl up and read. Do libraries allow napping these days? Because I could see myself snoozing in the dappled light by one of those windows!
