I took this picture using an ISO of 200, an F-Stop of 3.5, and a shutter speed of 1/200 of a second. I took this picture while I was reading Foundation beside the train-tracks that run behind my house. I came across this quote in the book that really spoke to me and I thought it paired nicely with the peacefulness of the woods that I was relaxing in. I really liked the way the beige color of the book's pages stood out against the grays and browns in the background. I also liked how the picture symbolizes how a book can take you away from life so that, at the moment, it is the only thing you are focusing on.
