2.49 - "Needs Work" 

Shot in the Lello Bookshop right after a full restauration and before it become the most famous touristic place to visit in Porto, Portugal. Back a few years ago, it was possible to visit this location with almost no one in it. Nowadays it has an average of 1200 people visiting every day and it is impossible to get an image like this (unless you know the owner, that might get you access after hours hehe).
The lello bookshop became famous as it was the location that J.K.Rowling picked as her place to read and write when she was working as an english teacher in Porto. It is said these are the stairs that inspired her to create the magic hogwartz castle staircases.

As for the shot, i closed my composition and just waited for the right person to go through. This lady with the hat gives the location scale and is just at the right place in the frame.
