Daily Photo: The Kelvingrove - Glasgow, Scotland

This is the front entrance to The Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow, Scotland.  It's a wonderful museum and as you can plainly see, it's freaking huge.  Being a fan of architecture, I shot the outside a lot, until the rain started, and then I went inside to explore.  It's well worth your time if you are in Glasgow - whether you have a camera or not.  There's a lot to see here!

For processing, I opted to go with a little higher contrast and make it a little darker and more moody.  As I said, it was raining and it just fits the photo in my opinion.  Plus "dark and moody" is a good way to describe the weather that day!
