Uninrsity of Leicester new Medical School Building, "Centre for Medicine" now really looking more like a building than a building site.
7/8 January 2016. Nicer sky on 7th, shame about the intrusive van

The Old and the New , December 1st 2015
A Mist Opportunity (November 2015)
Not the same with the mist missing
Ref below: It is now a few days later, and this was an hour or so earlier.
Just a bit too dark for this, will try again a bit earlier, later.
Really starting to look like the artists impression. Click on image to view higher resolution version.

Went out to photograph the planting, but the clouds were more interesting

Back to "normal" lighting (23rd September 2015) and note the whitewash going on. Looks good
Clouds/Centre for Medicine 21st September 2015
Cloud and rain, then in the space of ten minutes I turned round as the sun broke through
Seem that while I was out they lost the crane. The scissor jacks just don't have the same impact

July 23rd 2015. Changes not as obvious now, but the cladding's coming on nicely
Green as green can be, early June 2015
The building and its budding envirnonmental credentials, as it attempts to hide behing the trees, and-
- There ain't Nothin' Shakin' (But The Leaves On The Trees) [2015]
It was a bright and windy day, with two cross polarised polarisers to act as neutral density, to give 8 sec exposure
Back to green a few days later, with detail from sculpture. (More below)

Even the plastic sheeting is happy. When the cladding is complete I'll invite the Dave Clarke Five to sing Clad all over

On the left, the lights are on, on the right of the right, the cladding starts to go on
February 2015 - Is that a balcony or diving board they're installing?

Oh Lofty cranes
In your shroud of cloud
I love the cut of your jibs
I wonder, however

Seats of Learning? The start of a lecture theatre, or random ramp

As the building gains in height, a large red thing appears on site
(also known as a Long Reach Boom Pump, so I believe)

2nd April - 2014 With the arrival of another crane on site, I wonder if they are expecting to find further royalty in the big hole
