Photoessay: Salt Lake City Public Library Downtown Branch, Part 1: Monochrome

The City Library - Salt Lake City, Utah
Last week I had the opportunity to visit the Downtown Branch of the Salt Lake City Public Library. This is one of the most interesting library buildings anywhere. It's six stories tall, partially surrounded by glass and has a rooftop garden. It's visually striking! There are shops, galleries and even a coffee shop inside. Outside is a garden and water feature. 

Needless to say it's a great place for photography. I brought along my Fuji X-E1. I was impressed by the number of good images (all out-of-camera JPEGs) that I captured in the just-over-an-hour that I was there. It's a mix of street photography, architectural photography, urban landscape and still life. In this post are the black-and-white images, and Part 2 will have the color photographs. Enjoy!

The two images above are nearly identical, yet a slight twist of the camera makes them look different. I'm not sure which one I like better.
