This photo was taken at the Lighthouse in Glasgow, an old warehouse that has now been turned into an architecture and design museum. Once you climb the seven stories you have a magnificent view of the city, but coming down is the hardest part. Climbing up, one has a goal, something to anticipate, but going down only offers the end of an experience. I took this photo on my last weekend in Scotland before returning to America. Much like the decent down, I was hesitant to leave Scotland after having such a wonderful view of a different country and culture.
