Friday 1 October 2010: View from the president's office at YorkU
I was tasked to shoot a bunch of photos this morning to add to the stock pool. This is the view from the President's office on the 10th floor of the new York Research Tower. Vari Hall is the locus at York. Everyone passes through here. Behind it is the concrete monolith that used to be the epicentre, architecturally. It contains offices galore, some seminar rooms, lecture halls, the Scott Library, Central Square, food court, and stuff like that. People poke fun at the "Soviet bunker" and wonder how it could ever be demolished for the zillion tons of concrete in the thing. Red-tail Hawks make nests and perches up top and swoop down freaking students out.
This photo turned out pretty well for 8:30am on a Friday. Minor adjustments to brightness and colour in PhotoShop but that's it.
Yesterday's blip: Pink clouds over Aurora, Ontario
