Sam Alex foyer, 16/4/18

2017-18 is my thirteenth academic year at the University of Manchester, meaning that today was the 39th opening day of a term there.

Here’s the relatively monumental Sam Alex building (as most people on campus call it), named after a former professor of Philosophy at this august institution. I like the rim-lit shadowy figure to the right.
