Photographer: Cary Chu (朱健雄)

At New England, summer time is always an active season for photographers, same here at BCPA. Right after BCPA’s polo match shooting event on Aug 6, one of our members Cary Chu (朱健雄) brought us an very exciting news – BCPA got a permission from the Boston Public Library (BPL) that we (maximum 15 members) were allowed to bring cameras into the BPL building to shoot for three hours on Aug 13 2017, Sunday afternoon. With such a special permission, we were allowed to bring in tripods and were able to shoot together in a larger group.

Established in 1848, BPL was the first large free municipal library in the United States. There are two major buildings at BPL – the McKim Building and the Johnson Building. In 1986, the National Park Service designated the McKim Building a National Historic Landmark citing it as “the first outstanding example of Renaissance Beaux-Arts Classicism in America. Since then, BPL has become one of must see places at Boston.

Following a “First Come First Serve” principle, eventually a group of 15 BCPA members got this great opportunity. There were experienced members as well as some beginners, a perfect combination! To be well prepared for the event, a few days before the event, group members started talking about different shooting ideas. Daryl Luk (陆德礼) asked for volunteers to be his models, he even made sketches to show his designs for each model. Out of his busy daily routines, Cary Chu (朱健雄) took his time making useful tips for beginners demonstrated with nice pictures he took at BPL in old days.

On Aug 13 2017, outside of BPL people enjoyed the breeze under a sunny day; inside of BPL, 15 BCPA members were so into their shooting activities. They scattered into all rooms of the two buildings. Everyone was taking pictures with different lenses from various angles.

Below are some photos taken by our members at BPL. Through these pictures, hope you would see a bit different perspectives of the BPL. Enjoy!
