Experiencing L.A. at Powell Library, UCLA

From the archives: I had fun taking this photo of Powell Library when I was a undergrad at UCLA back in Winter Quarter 1983. 

If you're at all familiar with UCLA, you know this is a very difficult shot to get. Almost thirty years later, something I would not try again (or recommend others try). 

Chalk it up to an early "experiencing L.A." moment.

Beautiful building.

Classic - and classy.

So why was it so hard to take this photograph?

The photo was obviously taken from the top of Royce Hall - which is generally not open to the public. Or possibly one of the two towers. Not sure what the situation was in 1983 (before I was born).
