Amazing how much more visually interesting old architecture is compared to the glass and steel of today's modern buildings. But then I love the juxtaposition of the last photos of the incoming ferry. The serenity of the water, low lying hills and deepening blue sky provides a deep visual sigh.
I love being able to enjoy both - a bit of city buzz now and then, and the calm of the sea and countryside. Best of both worlds!
Afternoon in Glasgow.
There is so much to discover (in your photographs): the statues, the ornaments, the many different windows - glad not to be the one to wash them- the tine bits of green growing where one wouldn't expect them, the lettering on the buildings and the companies behind that,
I could easily spend another afternoon investigating further and then would finish again with a quiet and relaxing view of a ferry in the early evening light before returning at my screen.
There is so much history in those buildings. We complain that all our cities look the same now (same shops everywhere) but when you look up it's a different story! I'm glad you enjoyed the photographs.
Using public transport can take up so much more time but as your pictures illustrate it does allow moments to appreciate the things around you. Sarah x
I really enjoyed the 20 minute wait for the bus! And the light was really this blue on the water and the hills. Beautiful.
Your corner of the world is breath-taking, Freda...and you do have an eye with your camera! I am intrigued by the 5th photo down....that open window......it makes me wonder...who opened it? And why?
Maybe someone wishing they could be in the clean air on the shores of Loch Long?
