Cripes, Tom...I can see Learning oozing out of the walls...
Tom Wilson: You are probably confusing it with testosterone, Ray smile
A lovely perspective with these colours Tom!
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Richard.

The combination of brick and steel seems to work well here Tom
Tom Wilson: Sheffield U isn't noted for the homogeneity of its architecture!
Let's hope it's a bastion of keeping up with the times, Tom?!
Tom Wilson: These days, UK universities are simply degree mills, Ginnie.
I like it - it must've been enjoyable to walk around here!
Tom Wilson: It was a lovely day for a stroll - one of the few we'd had!

Striking colours on a sunny day.
Tom Wilson: Sunshine does improve the view!
I rather like the striking angles created by your photograph Tom. The walkway is like a place for a 'river' of people to flow through a canyon.
Tom Wilson: And it looks like that at times, Chad smile I think this was a Sunday morning.
I heard something on the radio last week where the expert was from the U of S. I thought of you,of course.
Tom Wilson: Thanks for the thought, Mary smile By UK standards Sheffield is quite a large university, about 26,000 students, so there's a lot of experts around.
All very modern looking.
Tom Wilson: Relatively recent builds, apart from the Arts Tower, which is 1960s
I like the bridge...
Tom Wilson: Handy when there's rain!
nicely framed with the railing Tom... i like the colours....petersmile
