Hurricane Bawbag

This is what kind of day it was yesterday. It may not look like it from the beautiful light in my apartment, but outside Hurricane Bawbag was brewing. Here’s a picture of it right outside my house. I took Indie out a couple of times yesterday, none of which ended particularly well. Let’s just say I was glad to have the privilege of working from home, therefore hiding inside for most of the day.

 
 

Rick Nunn Visits Glasgow

…And there was a horrendous downpour of torrential rain. Typical! A friend who enjoys shooting as much as I do visits and we can rarely leave shelter. I had made a list, too, and most of it involved being outdoors. Oh well, I guess this means he has to come back. Muhaha.

As you can imagine with Rick visiting (if you follow him at all), there was food, there was coffee, and there were photos with flash (and my lightbulb moment of realising I have to get away from ISO 100 when shooting with flash). Oh, and a wolf thrown in for good measure.

 
 

Three Steps To Heaven

This needs to happen again, and it needs to happen soon. Screw you, Glasgow, and your delectable offer of naughty foods while I’m trying to shape up. *drool*

 
 

Tuna Chunks

A photo taken from a few weeks back that was potentially going to be used in my 52 Weeks of Indie project, or whatever it’s called. Whenever I’m done with my tins of soup, beans etc I give them to Indie to clean with her tongue. No, she won’t cut herself. Bitch is tough.

 
 

French Toast and Maple Syrup in Glasgow’s West End

After cleaning up a delicious plate of french toast in Tribeca, a wee wander around the west end was in order, if only to give myself the illusion I was working off the maple syrup and bacon combo I had just eaten. The west end of Glasgow is very studenty, so despite it being Friday afternoon there were a lot of people milling about; folk coming out of class, or jogging along one of the many beautiful and busy roads. I just love the west end! Also, I am digging the tilt shift against textured backgrounds. Almost as delicious as my french toast.

 
 

Casual Pal

I don’t know why, but I took the notion to play with texture. Based on the result I probably won’t be trying again any time soon (or how about I practice more and get better? I don’t want to be as defeatist as everyone else). I took this with my Speedlite. Do I get points for using my Speedlite? I think I should. n00b!

 
 

Wonky Nature

A bitter afternoon in the West End of Glasgow, after a cheeky lunch at Tribeca and some street photography (which I’ll get to posting later, after the Frank Turner gig or possibly tomorrow). My camera and sunsets, I could not live without you.

 
 

Ethiopia Shakiso from Has Bean

Mmm, my coffee from Has Bean arrived today, recommended to me by my friend, Rick Nunn. My cafetiere had a chunk of glass break from it (I have no idea how), so it’s now been replaced with the dripper pot you see in the photos. My house smells so perfect right now!

 
 

Lunch at Lebowskis

Carolyn, my sister, was in Glasgow for meetings with factories to produce her dresses, so we caught up over some lunch at Lebowskis. This place is known for its burgers, and, well, that is what I finally had after many times eating here and opting for the salad. It was delicious, though I couldn’t finish the entire thing (maybe the black pudding sandwiched on top of the burger wasn’t the best idea), and I hated myself after it.

 
 

That Smile

A couple of weekends back I traveled to my ex-hometown of Inverkip, where I photographed a young family and their newest addition. I’ve said it before, having never really been exposed to kids I feel I lack that ‘maternal’ instinct most women naturally have, but this kid made me melt when he smiled. He had the most infectious grin. And those baby Converse… Cutest. Thing. Ever.

I could never take a family into a studio and produce shots that I’m happy with. Instead I need to be able to tell them to sit their kid in the middle of the road and use the naturally, beautiful Scottish surroundings that we’re blessed with. I really enjoyed taking these photos.
