Books and Happiness

In the hallway crossover of my apartment building, I documented the atrium at 1pm, 7pm and 11pm.  A fair amount of light enters the atrium during the day, and extends all the way to the basement.  But as the day continues, artificial light becomes the major source, and completely changes the color and visual quality of the space.  Our eyes can correct for this, but by capturing it in a photograph, we are largely at the mercy of our understanding of camera functions.  Unfortunately, my tripod attachment snapped in two, so these photographs do not use the same settings.  I had to account for camera shake, so I defaulted to preset variables instead of taking control of aperture and white balance.
