Your University, One Photo at a Time

The University at Night

The University at Night

The area just outside the Library and the Fraser Building is a fantastic place to spend a few minutes, just sitting around on a nice (not rainy) evening, appreciating the view. The benches are always full of students when the sun comes out, but come nightfall, the only people you’ll find here are some students having a smoke break from their library sessions, or me crouched in a corner taking photographs. I have once witnessed someone taking a nap on one of the dissection table benches, at 1am! The rain that fell soon afterwards woke him up. (Probably sobered him up a bit as well.)

Tomorrow will kick off another Theme Week as we dive into some of the museums around Glasgow University.

    I’ve noticed the red sky over the main building too, but never got as good a shot as this one.

    I’m wondering, have you ever seen those guys practising parkour round here? I’ve always wanted to take a picture of them, but never quite dared!

    • I see the parkour guys all the time, usually around the area between the Adam Smith Building and the Library, as well as between the Fraser Building and the Round Reading Room. I’ve never tried to get a shot of them, but I’ll try to have a chat with them next year and get a few shots of them for this blog.
