PS Vita Room Preview Event

Dropped by the PS Vita Room at Sauchiehall Street, Glasgow which lasted for just under a week from January 24th - 29th. Nice friendly staff around. Even the security guards were being the doormen. I didn't bother the staff with any questions since I read enough about the PSP successor ever since the rumour mill had been running so, I...


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...


Evangelion 2.0 To Premiere at Glasgow Film Festival ::

It appears the second remake movie Evangelion 2.0: You Can (Not) Advance will be on show next week in the UK on Monday 15th during the Glasgow Film Festival with subtitles. Since the Japanese DVD release won't be out until May 26th apparently, I think I will go see it on the big screen and see how many people here turn up for the evening! Will...


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...


Chinglish...? Isn't Bad English Called Engrish? ::

According to the news the recession is over but while walking about in town, I found another big retailer Borders closing down which had been running for many years now. So we've had three big long running stores closing down here now - Virgin Megastores, Woolworths and now Borders. Going to be a while before things are looking up in the...


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...
