From the sublime to the ridiculous

After posting images of 10 years of decay at Govanhill baths taken during Glasgow Doors Open Day here's a couple from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons. They have an extensive library and this cupola dome in the roof is above the librarians desk.

Oh for a wider angle lens


Oh for 2 metre arms

That dome looks beautiful Jamie, you have captured the details very nicely.
For a wider angle how about stitching a few shots together?

Beautiful interior shots - is all of it in such good condition?

Dan,
I knew the building was the RCPS as they've got a number of the Georgian terraced houses on the block. It was only because they had the Glasgow Open Doors sign up that I went in. It fairly took my breath away. They have an extensive library and an art collection. As well as that many of the rooms have all their original features. It's worth a visit and it's accessible by the public.

Re: From the sublime to the ridiculous

I really like finding out of the way and unusual places that aren't too crowded. For those of you in London I don't know if you've ever gone to the Sir John Soane museum in Lincoln's Inn Fields. My daughter found out about it when she studied in London and took me on a visit. It really is worth a look - and it's free - though they do have a donation box. No photography allowed though - but it's still worth it to see how he built the house around his collection - and it is an amazing collection. Here's a link if anyone is interested.
