A (GLASGOW) WINTER'S TALE...



Myself and my friend, the bold MOONMANDO, were
in the West End of Glasgow today, trying out his new camera.
Here are a few random shots which show just what a delightful
place it happens to be, even on a frosty winter's day.  (Of course,
we were armed to the teeth, just in case we had to deal with any
unfriendly natives invading from the East End.  I had a water
pistol and Moony's strategy was to blind any attackers
with his camera-flash,)

Yes, I know I'm talking p*sh - but I have a permit.

Ah, dearie me! Poor old Glasgow.
When I was home in summer, I was down in George Square for the Commonwealth Games and the Independence Rally, and everybody was having a great time; and now to see it like this — what a sad Christmas.

Nice photos but, and always welcome.

I take it you're referring to the recent accident in George Square, GB? Sad indeed, especially at this time of year. Alas, Christmas will never be the same again for the families of those who died.

A few years ago I heard Glasgow described as "Britain's best kept secret" in something like the Lonely Planet (maybe it was LP). When I was a kid there was a little girl in our street who had cancer - she survived with it for a couple of years but died on December 21st 1979 aged nine. I remember breaking up for the Christmas holidays (I was 13 at the time) and my friend/neighbour, Martin, was standing on his doorstep as I was coming up the road and he told me the news. The funeral was on December 27th 1979 and I can still see the sad little coffin but these tragic things happen even at Christmas, such is life.

Indeed, CJ. Families who suffer such tragic things must have a hard time enjoying Christmas (if they even can) in quite the same way as previously. It'll always remind them of sad times, I'd imagine.

So glad you 'straightened' me out kid. Photos look better on the blog than my cameras monitor.

Kid said...

Only because your monitor is too small (as most are) to see them in all their glory, Moony. It helps that they were good photos to begin with - far better, clearer quality than you got from the camera you replaced.
