This is Winchester House know as the 3M building in my town centre, it was the UK HQ for 3M until 2003 when they moved to a new office on the outskirts, it has been empty ever since and they keep talking about dropping the building which would be a great photo opportunity :)

The Weekend indoor Market is underneath which is why it's taking so long to do something with the building.

eta. I did shift+open in RAW to create a smart object, copied that and created a darker exposure to bring the cloud detail out. Then used a layer mask to just show the clouds in that layer

I wonder what the plans for the site are? It seems incredible that such an towering great building can be redundant. Hope you know when to be there.

Wow! It's hard to believe that big old, sound looking building is completely empty. That's amazing. But if they do take it down, that would in fact be an awesome photo op. Especially if the implode it. I'll be watching for that from you :)
