Christmas Shoppers

Okay, so I’m terribly unorganised. I leave everything to the last minute, which meant that not only did I have Christmas shopping to do, but I had various other finance related things hanging over my head that I needed to deal with. I made a promise to myself that I’d get up early today, head into town and beat the crowd. By 11am I had dealt with the bank, paid off my credit card, posted my Christmas cards, and wrapped up my shopping. And snapped some street photography, too!

 
 

Laurence Deveney

So, I took Laurence to Tribeca over the weekend to get these pancakes I won’t stop talking about. Actually, I had the french toast this time. I think I prefer it. Anyway, it was one of those extremely bitter days, which you can probably tell by the look of Laurence. I’ve always said I like winter, but this year I seem to have gone off it and am weirdly pining for some warmer weather. I hate the bulky clothes and shoes we have to wear in this weather, it makes me feel huge. I’d gladly walk around naked. I’ll do it if you do.

 
 

Sam Brown

After a year since I last saw him, I finally got to catch up with Sam last week. Sam plays video games (although not as much as he should), is a UI designer developer, and gets to travel to New York for work. We took some photos in a rainy Glasgow, and I introduced him to one of my favourite coffee shops, The Hidden Lane Tearoom. By the time we had finished our coffee, the sun was out and I shot right into it with the tiltshift lens. It produced some psychedelic results.

 
 

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.
