Military Precision

Roll Out That Red Carpet, Please

Photograph copyright: DAVID McMAHON


On Monday we were guests at the Indian Military Academy here in Dehra Dun. We were on our way from a splendid DVD presentation about the history and the aims of the academy, to be ushered into the magnificent Chetwood Hall. I stopped as everyone else walked on. My attention had been caught by this sight, a simple hallway lit by the mid-morning sunshine, with reflections rippling across the polished tiles.

I keep coming back to this photo in my mind. I wonder how they got the tile to look like that. The red just melts into the floor like a piece of butter.
