A wee dauner round Glasgow

One of the great things about being retired is that you can do more or less what you want, when you want without someone telling you there’s work that needs doing.  So with that in mind, I took myself into Glasgow this morning with nothing more to do than buy some oil paint and my lunch – though not on the same plate, thank you very much.  I had a fine day, too.  Just wandering, or as someone else put it, a flaneur.  An aimless wander.  Ye cannie beat it!

To Infinity and Beyond

Under the M8 In Glasgow there are wonderful vistas to behold.
It’s the leading lines that impressed me along with the painted “trompe-l’œil” painting at the end.  The figure in the mid-distance was a ‘lucky’!

I liked the fact that the only colour here was from the leaves and the yellow stair guards.

Glasgow’s Flat Iron Building

Every time I pass this building on the M8, I promise myself I’ll photograph it some day.  Today was that day.  It’s actually Shamrock Street and I really like this isolated tusk of a sandstone building.  I’ll be back on a day with better light DV.
