Where to go and what to photograph when the weather doesn’t turn out the way you’d hoped.
The intricate vault and columns of the Glasgow University Gilbert Scott building cloisters. During my years at the university I always knew it as the ‘main building’, rather than the Gilbert Scott.
On my way through the gates I asked the guy in the security office if it was ok to bring a tripod. He told me it was fine but that the university would sue me if I published any photos I took. I think he was joking, but just in case I’m hoping Flickr and Facebook don’t count as publishing, as my team of fancy big-city lawyers are busy with several dozen PPI claims I have on the go.
Disclaimer: any asymmetry in this shot is of course entirely the fault of the architect/builders.
