Bit of a test for the 7D2, too, Ayush!

A bookstore seems like a good use for a an old church building.
Ayush Basu: Bit of a test for the monkey behind the camera, Ray. I visited this place in 2009 and with my 450D, got shots comparable if not better!
amaaaaazing shots... love the bookstore, love the building it's in, and is that processing or the lighting?
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Elaine. This is a wonderful place

The perfect use for this redundant church Ayush
Ayush Basu: Quite right, Chris. Thank you
Oh, yes, Ayush. One of the best bookstores ever! We were there in June 2010 and will never forget it. http://www.ginniehart.blogspot.nl/2010/06/way-with-words.html
Ayush Basu: It is! Thank you, Ginnie

Yes, a wonderful boekhandel I visited, too - and I bought a Dutch novel.
Ayush Basu: I am afraid I did not buy anything on this occasion but if I travel through that part again, I would like to stop by once more, Philine.
A very good photo!
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much, Roland.
Never seen such a book store, quite remarkable
Ayush Basu: It really was a great idea that they came up with and I am happy with their success, Martin.

Wonderful angles and composition.
Ayush Basu: You are very kind, Beth.
One could stand for hours looking at that ceiling. Good pix.
Ayush Basu: Very good point, Jacquelyn
Ce doit être très agréable de choisir des livres dans un tel endroit.
Ayush Basu: Je suis d'accord avec vous. Merci beaucoup.
[I agree with you. Thank you for that remark, Martine]
It's an amazing place, isn't it? I had pics of it a couple of years ago!
Ayush Basu: It was certainly an innovative idea and apparently it is working well, Tom.

Great pictures and we have great memories on that day. I think you liked Maastricht, a wonderful city. You saw a nice part of the 'Hollandshire'
Ayush Basu: I did like it a lot, Astrid. I spent only a day there though.
looks like a great place to shop...
Ayush Basu: It certainly is and I judged that it was doing brisk business, Larry.
Wow - I love that ceiling!!! What a wonderful place! Excellent photos, Ayush!
Ayush Basu: It sure is a fascinating place and I was happy to see it getting hearty footfall, Elizabeth.

That looks fabulous, what a wonderful place for a bookstore smile
