This week I’ll try to focus on windows and reflections to contrast the numerous old and new brick and concrete buildings. The abundance of glass around the campus on the buildings is a welcome contrast to the 19th century neo-gothic architecture and the 1960′s brutalist concrete buildings like the Boyd Orr Building, visible just to the right side there.
A few things to note about this photo. First, this was taken on September 22nd 2008, on my way to the very first lecture of my academic career at the University of Glasgow (Sociology, Anthropology and Applied Sciences 1A, in the Joseph Black Building). Secondly, the University Tower is reflected on the side of the Wolfson Medical School Building. Running across this photo in my archives I noticed that I haven’t attempted at playing with taking photos of reflections and whatnot with this building at all, besides this building.
Note to self: Take camera to Wolfson Medical School Building, play with reflections, attempt to get some great shots.
