However, today the lighting conditions were not conducive to creating that sort of atmosphere, so I chose a different corner of the building to have a little… er… fun.

Took a few photos today, but not whilst wandering semi-aimlessly as usual. I was, instead, in a building that will soon be the new premises for the company I work for. The building has been standing empty for a while and has aged accordingly. But a clean up and a lick of paint will soon […]
