Part three of our #jarviewalk adventure took place in the Salt Lake City’s Main Library located across from the City County building and just north of the former Main Library which was transformed into the Leonardo Interactive Museum where we had a photowalk a few months ago. We were told to meet there by 4pm, so after finishing up at the Cathedral of the Madeline, Heather Webb and I parked downtown (thanks to my wife for the great parking spots at her work) and headed for a bite to eat at Carl’s Jr. before walking the 2 1/2 blocks to the Library. This was my first ever visit into the interior of the Library and I was very impressed, this has to be one of the prettiest Libraries out there, it’s such a complete shift from the monolithic feel of the old Library.
We immediately bumped into David Daniels an extraordinary local photographer, and all around great guy, (just be careful while drinking anything around him as he will make you laugh out loud) and we stood in the impressive main foyer (called the “Urban Room”) and chatted while waiting for the main group to arrive as they had visited another location prior to the library and were running late.
After a half hour or so the main group finally arrived and we headed out to the plaza to shoot and to access the long curving stairway to the roof.
Finally we reached the top!
I didn’t take many shots from the roof as the clouds and wind kind of sucked the will out of me but I did have a chance to chat with another photographer hero of mine Colby Brown, we talked about photography, his hectic travel schedule, and being a new Dad. Seriously Colby is just an awesome guy, I highly recommend you look at his website, and learn about his charity work and photo workshops.
While taking these images I was able to bump into and talk with one of my favorite photographers, the ever patient and gracious Karen Hutton. I’ll talk more about our interactions in the next section of our photowalk.
Next up is the long walk to Temple Square and a surprise ending…
