Sky Shot at Cowcaddens ::

Been a while since I made an entry in the photography section so while I was out yesterday to pick up my tickets for the Evangelion 2.0 UK premiere, I decided to go for a little location hunting again. Sky and silhouette shots are very common so making such photos stand out is tough but then again, photography is art so what one likes is a...


Santa Dash 2009 ::

On Sunday morning, over 4000 people dressed up in Santa costumes gathered together at Glasgow's George Square for the annual fund raising Santa Dash event and I went along to watch for the first time. I arrived in town at around 8:30am because of the sparse number of buses on a Sunday. I passed by a number of patrol cars that were already...


Winter Noon ::

Was out and about in Glasgow as usual and during noon, when the sun is at its highest point in the sky, the town was lit up with a rare warm golden hue as if it was sunset, casting long dramatic shadows of the busy crowd across the grounds. Naturally, it was another moment I thought that would make an interesting photo. Of course, I done a bit of...


A Stroll Through Greenbank Garden ::

Hmmm, seems I've been visiting a lot of parks and gardens lately ^^; Greenbank Garden is apparently marked as another tourist spot in Glasgow but also a member of the National Trust for Scotland - One of the many places that are being run or preserved by the organisation and if you're not a member of the club, you have to pay to get in. As...


A Stroll Around The Museum of Transport

Another place I've never been in before but the sound of old transport sounded like it would be an interesting place to get used to my DSLR and lens. Entering the Glasgow Museum of Transport, which is about a 5 to 10 minutes walk from Glasgow University, this set up caught my eye. Makes you feel like you've gone back in time, doesn't it?...


A Stroll Around Glasgow Green

Never been to the East End of Glasgow before and I'm pretty sure my parents never brought me here either. I decided to take a look when I saw a sign pointing to "Glasgow Green" park while hunting for interesting places to practice my photography skills. I have to say it looks very plain arriving from the west entrance. There's the old...


Merchant City Festival 2009 Parade

The annual Merchant City Festival 2009 just ended yesterday and it also happened to be the first time I attended. It was a good opportunity to give my DSLR a whirl. Fortunately, it wasn't raining so I managed to get some shots during Saturday's parade. The parade was gathering at Nelson Mandela place and the police were already there to...


A Stroll Around Pollok Country Park

Was out for a stroll at Pollok Country Park with an old high school friend while taking some sample photos with the Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ7. I wanted a different place for test shots instead of using the same spots all the time although having one or two similar places is still the best for comparison purposes I suppose. I think the last...


The New "Squiggly Bridge" in Glasgow

They finally completed and opened up the new "squiggly bridge" (it's yet to be officially named) while I was away in HK. The shape is supposed to look like that of waves. I guess the engineer never imagined it would be used as a slide when he/she designed it. Went to have a closer look and I found a lot of slide marks down the slopes in the...
