    I Love It

    I wanted to be an architect I have always been interested in it.  Sadly I was not good at drawing or at mathematics. Nevertheless I love architecture especially architecture from 1950 onwards and of course all the projects being constructed in Dubai.

    This is 'Bridge House' in Leeds.

    end of Glasgow, it stands out on the skyline due to the colour. The church hall was demolished years ago and the flats you now see attatched to the tower.
