Your University, One Photo at a Time

Urban Studies Window Detail

Urban Studies Door Detail

Ever since I bought a new camera in late April, I’ve begun to notice something new more and more frequently. Going from a mobile phone with technically no zoom capability (only sub-par digital zoom) to a camera with 20x optical zoom, I’ve begun to look up and around more often. What I’ve noticed is that many of the buildings around campus have little decorations and etchings to them, some at eye-level, some far above where they’re hard to make out with the naked eye.

This flowery detail is a stained-glass decoration on the window of one of the doors at Bute Gardens, housing the Department of Urban Studies at Glasgow University, just next to the Adam Smith Building. The photo was taken at night, allowing the pastel colours to stand out more than they do during the day.

For more photos of detailing and decorations to buildings found around the Glasgow University campus, please proceed this way. As I continue this photo blog over my university career at Glasgow, I’ll present more and more features of the University which might typically go unseen by students and visitors alike.
