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?
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 keep order.
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.
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.
