Walking home from work

The sound of lightning
the smell of rain
someone jumps at the crash
but ignores the flash

Trudging through the carpark
head throbbing with pressure
water running down my back
jacket waterproof no more

The natural fireworks impress
but I am not cowed at all
enjoying the storm
feeling alive

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


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
