Time changes the light.

The theme for this weeks Foto Finish was time. I wanted to use my photo of the meridian at Greenwich for this but just can't find it in my archives. So I decided to show you the view from the tenth floor of the vertical campus that is The School of Nursing, Midwifery and Health Care, part of The University of West London where I teach.

I took these photos on my phone earlier this year. The first one is looking east into London. The university is on the western outskirts of the city. The elevated road is the M4 motorway bringing traffic in from the west of the country. It narrows to just two lanes each way at this point and is carried at the level of our 4th floor. The photo was taken during the late afternoon.

The second photo is looking out towards the west and show the corner of the international headquarters of Glaxo Smith Klein which is across the road from our building. You can't see the motorway in this shot as it follows the curve of the building and passes between the two buildings. There are often amazing sunsets to be seen  from this side. This photo was taken later the same day.

Not the prettiest view from a window but it gives a panoramic view of the area to watch the changing seasons. Go and visit Barbara's blog Cat Patches to see everyone's photos by clicking here

I'm now off to continue work on my November NewFO's Hope you all have a good weekend that includes some time for stitching.
