Your University, One Photo at a Time

University Avenue at Night

University Avenue at Night

University Avenue runs up the road from Byres Road, past the Boyd Orr Building and the Wolfson Medical School Building (which was featured yesterday) to the top of the hill, past the Main Building and the Round Reading Room, and back down past the Glasgow University Union. It is, in short, the main artery of the University of Glasgow campus.

A sightseeing bus passes by every 20 minutes or so. The 44 bus goes by every now and then. Cars, buses, taxis, students, it’s a busy road.

I captured this long exposure shot from the foot of Hillhead Avenue, which runs past the University Library. The Wolfson Medical School Building is the big source of light at the foot of the hill, and if you remember the fact that the lights are motion-activated, that means the house is full of students studying. At 1am on a Monday morning, no less.

Can you guess what kind of a vehicle made those light streaks? The answer is below, backwards, and crossed out (no peeking!)
