The Half Day School I by paddimir The Half Day School I by paddimir
This was once called "The Half Day School", so called because children would go to school for half a day and spend the rest of the time working in the Paisley textile mills. this was considered quite enlightened at the time.

More recently itt was also a nightclub called "The Institute" which is naturally why it is now a burnt out ruin

ah, i love this sort of theme. not really destryed or demolished, but it just gives off a sort of apocalyptic feel. Very unsettling, and really brilliant. good job :salute:

oh i always knew it was there - I even went to it once when it was night club - but it's not as interesting if you are just taking a traditional photo of it, so I hadn't bothered walking all the way up there until recently :)

It's the sky what really makes this photo so vivid, in my opinion. That, and great shot. Whatever you do, keep that infared lens of yours safe.
