flying books: freedom to read



main stacks, uc berkeley campus
i don't know who or why, but i thought that it was a neat idea.
i discovered it on my quest for summer reading books.
it reminded me that there are many people in the world who don't have access to as many books as we do in the US. whether through libraries or through bookstores, we have so many books at our fingertips to just pick up and read; yet there are people who don't have the freedom of expression, let alone the freedom or even the luxury to read. i feel like this can almost represent a statement that everyone should be free to read and share the intellectual wealth by lifting constraints for people who are limited by governments, resources, lack of wealth, or society.

it is mainly a photo taken with my recently purchased, first digital camera, but there was noticeable manipulation done with adobe photoshop (see my scraps section for a look at the original).

many thanks to skydream for the hours spent on helping me with making the borders and for teaching me the ropes of photomanipulation with adobe photoshop. (thank you chris! :D )
