2) The light hitting the library
3) I was walking to Bits with a friend to grab some dinner the other night. The sun was just about set, casting the library in this bright golden light. However, because of the angle, the library was the only thing lit. The surrounding buildings were shrouded in darkness, drawing even more attention to the mass building that is the library.
Because it was a late sunset, the light was pure gold, which reflected off the windows, making it seem ever brighter. Compared to the desolate, dark buildings surrounding it, the library looked like a temple, Nirvana, or some great place to pay homage to, not a grimy college library where 70 year old men go to pleasure themselves.
By the time we left Bits, the sunset was gone, and the building had gone dark, like the others around it. I was glad to experience that brief moment of blinding beauty, even if it was fleeting.
