I managed to get soaked about three times today as Glasgow’s skies continue to melt. It’s getting pretty ridiculous looking out the window at any given time of the day and seeing torrential rain pummelling everything below it.
Bring back the snow I say or sort yourself out clouds and do as requested and go to Spain.
Spent a short but painful amount of time in a dentists chair today but the lovely colours of a Glasgow close cheered me up on my way there.
I love the way the way the colours all change in the rain and each sandstone wall tells its own story. The tiles are just another magical world altogether.
It is pure Baltic out but inception street always warms my cockles. Situated in Partick, Glasgow Gardner street as some people call it is a treat for the eyes. Some say it reminds them of San Francisco but in reality San Fran is just a homage to Gardner street. As we all know “San Francisco” is Spanish for “Steep Glasgow street that’s pure mental to get up in the snow and ice”
Like a scene from True Detective, first series obviously, this sits out amongst the frost. The local pigeons have clearly committed a ritual bird seeding. One can only imagine the carnage that created this but on my way home, it had mysteriously disappeared. Another mystery that will go unsolved.
Now eight days into this first project of twelve and I am already trying to sort out the next few. Some in the pipeline but if you want to get involved then get in touch.
All hail Scotland the neon. Always love a wee dander around Glasgow’s streets and perfectly tucked away is the GOMA. Home to an amazing modern art collection as well as a great library underneath.
“We Love Real Life Scotland” by Ross Sinclair currently adorned the outside of the building. Giving the Duke of Wellington a bright backdrop and catching the eye of pretty much every passer by.
This year so far has been all about my teeth. Impacted molars means starting the New Year on some tasty antibiotics and a hope that I won’t get these yanked out.
On the daily photo side I feel I’ve turned a corner, I need to be less focused on getting some awesome photo I will never achieve and instead just embrace whatever.
So that’s it, 30 days of photos. In the end some were not from the archive due to busyness. This last one is. On a ferry traveling across Lake Victoria. If you are going to win at cards, do it in style and with red eyes. Circa 2008
Today’s post is a bit of a treat of photos from a rather insane journey I took.
From the bright lights of Kampala, Uganda to the abstract craziness of Yei, Sudan (Now South Sudan). This is easily the most insane travelling I have done and one of those I look back upon still with fear.
The mighty Ross Blackmore doing sound in a cold and wet forest outside Glasgow. Today two years ago I launched the trailer for my short film Dragoon (have a watch below if you haven’t seen it yet.)
After a rather manic 2013 this was something that kept me going. Rather proud of how the trailer ended up.
