Old Medical Library

I had a really long debate rolling with this photo. My internal discussion is honestly why I wanted to post this photo. The site itself is completely awesome! An 18th Century Medical Theater in Barcelona called Sala Gimbernat.

My debate was around the computer on this library table on the right. In the original photo (which was not square) the computer was in the photo, but when I was there I wondered about moving it for the shot. It wasn’t hooked up, just sitting there. On the left side of the table is a WONDERFUL ancient and massive book that I just loved. What do you think? If you were there by invitation, do you disturb peoples things to get a better shot? Does it matter if this would have been a paid shoot (I think so)? In the end, the computer stayed and I cropped to a 1×1 format which seemed to fit the idea better anyway.
