Glasgow changes

This is an addition to the changing face of the city post showing some of the things that use to be where the open space is now.

Black and white Shapes challenge

Its been a while since we had a challenge but the new one is black and white shapes from thirty six that were taken in an hour. I only managed thirty four before running out of time 😦 All the pictures here were taken in the Gorbals Glasgow.

 

36 in 1

A new feature?

The contributors to Slippery pavement have the challenge of getting three good photos in one hour and to make it harder can only take thirty six photos. The idea stemmed from seeing others doing one hour of photography and a comment about a photographer who aimed to get one very good photo in thirty six (this was in the days of film when a roll limited you to thirty six pictures).

This is the first attempt

Parliamentary Road revisited

A long time ago Gary did an article about a lost road in Glasgow which is here and today I made a long overdue follow up by walking along the path that follows its course. I goes through some unremarkable flats and high rise blocks but the path has entrance markers and statues along its length as you can see in the photos.

One end with a statue and some pillars that mark the entrance to the path

Some pictures of a statue at the middle of the path

Next a monument to the architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh who lived in the area as a child.

Finally the other end of the path with some more pillars
