Stuttgart City Library, Germany

This Month in Photo of the Day: Your Shots

Visitors browse the Stuttgart City Library, a media center opened in 2011 and lauded for its clean and open design. Your Shot community member Shu Koumura shot on tungsten-type film and used an E-6 bleach bypass development process.

What Makes This a Photo of the Day? Film! That detail alone makes me smile. A nod to those still practicing the art of analog and alternative processing techniques aside, this is a great example of taking something straightforward—the already photogenic interior of the City Library in Stuttgart—and making a stand-out shot. —Alexa Keefe, Photo of the Day editor
