Picture Post, Sunday January 28, 2007

A little piece of Heaven.

There is an AWESOME used bookstore in downtown Melbourne, Florida called One The Shelf.

Here are a few pictures from our last visit to the store. The place has boxes of books that he has bought from folks, but hasn't shelved yet. These boxes are in the aisles and corners of the store; you have to really watch your step walking around in here.

They have comics and just about any category of book you would care to look for.


This next one is all the stuff jam packed behind the register right inside the front door.
Autographed by Pat Boone! Who knows what other treasures you might find?


This one makes you want to dig into those boxes.
This is one of those situations where digital cameras provide a little magic. When I stepped into the store, the first thing I did was to adjust the white balance of the camera to the "fluorescent" setting. I cranked up the ISO to 800, and took the pictures here without a flash.

I dearly love slide film and the way it looks, the colors and everything, but my dSLR is still finding new ways to win my heart.

I love a good bookstore like this, where you can spend all day on a treasure hunt.
