Even though it's an amazing place to visit, I don't find our National Library the most photogenic building. It's a bit too 60s and blocky.
This seems to be the tourist brochure view.
But it has some wonderful 1960s stained glass windows in the foyer. The windows were designed by Leonard French and designed to represent Gustav Holst's The Planets.
These stained glass windows are actually very difficult to photograph. Mr Strong Belief (who is a photographer) says it's because my camera struggles with white balance, because of so much intense colour. I fiddled with the colours of the photos to try and get it to represent the glorious reds in particular, they came out too orangey in my snaps- I'm not sure the colours are exact still, but still you get the idea.
