Last days of Red Road

I recently took some photos of the Red Road flats.   I took two cameras with me and shot them from many different angles.  When we approached the first three building flat, we came across kids playing just in front of it upon spare ground.  We learned that two of them were brothers and had came to Glasgow from Baghdad just after the American bombing of the city.  We then learned that the third boy had came only recently from Libya with his family.  Upon me asking what they all thought of Glasgow and their new homes,  one of them replied to me saying he thought it was a beautiful place.  I couldn’t help but feel sad.  There he was on a piece of spare ground in the middle of these decaying monstrous structures and he was commenting on the beauty of the place.   These are just a handful of the photos I took that day.
