Unusual: WordPress Photo Challenge

The placement of these lights is what made this unusual for me.  They are placed on the underside of a concrete stairwell at Simon Fraser University.  They, sort of, light a number of study carrels that are also situated under the stairs, but do not provide enough light to make much of a difference.  As a style choice, it’s like a bunch of little halogen UFO’s hanging over one’s head.


Oh, and Happy St. Patrick’s Day.
