Intelligence

Presumably reading a lot in diverse subjects and in different languages makes you more intelligent.
I find that the more I read, the more I realize how little I know.
Also the amount that I still need to read is always increasing.
Still, it is our favorite hobby and our discussions on reading could go on forever.

Most of the books on this shelf will never make it to a kindle, if they all do I'll eat one of my copies of Dostoevsky, "The Idiot".
(A big novel to eat)

This is a really cool shot. I too love looking at bookcases when I visit friends.

A very clever idea for "intelligence". I love the distortion. You might view the distortion as a metaphor for the difference in the interpretation of the author and that of the reader, although both may be valid.

By the way, "The Idiot" is available for the Kindle, as are many of the classics. For example, I have Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics. Do not fear though that you will have to eat one of your copies of "The Idiot". I am sure that some of those books are not available for Kindle. :)

Impressive library and a uncommon perspective !
Yvonne08-Apr-2010 11:50
Looks a bit like ours - we never seem to have enough space on the shelves! Great shot with your fish eye mastery Walter!

Great choice and I'm still loving that lens of yours. Just need to get a full frame sensor first.
Inga Morozoff08-Apr-2010 01:49
Now that's a book case!
Cindi Smith08-Apr-2010 01:26
One way to get it, for sure but you gotta take some time off to be goofy too! :) Love the fisheye!

The "eyes" have a job to do.

Beautiful library, and wonderful book collection Walter, I'm sure you are a very intelligent man. You are so right: there is nothing like holding a real book in your hands! V
Stephanie08-Apr-2010 00:26
Books, books & more books! Cool view through your fish eye!
vatorman08-Apr-2010 00:11
But I see some evidence of 'play' with the toys on the lower shelves - true intelligence is to know when to have fun and play a little. Wonderful collection shot Walter.
J. Scott Coile07-Apr-2010 23:48
A good result. Humbling!
Bill Ewart Jr07-Apr-2010 23:42

You may be on to something Walter - too many folks don't read books anymore!
