Approaching Orange

Underground in Glasgow last year. Waiting for what the locals call ‘The Clockwork Orange’. It’s orange and it goes around in a circle. Don’t ask too many questions, I didn’t. A decidedly more pleasant commuting experience when compared to the London Underground; Something I’ve become all too familiar with in the last couple of years. …

Top Deck

Trams aren’t made like this anymore. Anyone that’s ever been on the red Luas line could tell you that. In the Glasgow transport museum, best place to go (aside from the pub) when the weather takes a turn.

Wonderful Construct

Last one of the year, a quick post while getting ready to go out on New Years Eve. Also possibly the last one of the roof of the Glasgow Botanic Gardens I’ll post for a while. I’ll try to keep my roof fetish down to a dull roar in future. So, 2008 is on the …

White Gold

Possibly the last photo I’ll post before the true nature of the festive season jumps us all in a dark alley. Currently without broadband after re-locating, hopefully I’ll get a connection to the outside world early on in the new year. So in case I’m not back before the first of the first, all of …

Somewhere on the Loch Lomond drive I think (open to correction) there was a parking spot with a convenient amount of picturesque frozen stuff within spitting distance. Course, if you had spit, it would have frozen instantly and you’d …

Uni

One of the most magnificent universities I’ve ever visited. Taken inside the cloisters at Glasgow University, facing out onto a frosty, snowy courtyard. A quiet, tranquil place to spend a bit of time… Unless there’s half a dozen members of a family playing an impromptu game of football 50 yards away from you.

Ceiling Fish

The wonderful, the marvelous, the often copied but never bettered (or battered either) ceiling fish of Glasgow! These monsters are swimming around just inside the door of what I would call the main building of the botanic gardens.. or are they hanging from the ceiling? I haven’t quite made my mind up yet.

Someone Elses Garden

The outside of the glass roof at the botanic gardens in Glasgow city. First time there, but I already know I’ll be going back. Fantastic place, great food (although I’m not too sure about the haggis), great people (and their great accents) and some amazing architecture. Spent a quite chilly weekend there only to come …
