Good Morning, Glasgow

I sat down to finish off a client’s photos at 8.00am, hoping to be completely finished by the time ‘real’ work began at 9. The sunrise, however, caught my attention and was too good to resist, so several minutes later I was running towards the Clyde with my tripod and camera in hand. Landscapes don’t generally interest me much, but when the light falls a certain way they can really push my button. In fact, when the light falls a certain way, it can make any subject push my button.

I only fired off a couple of frames of the clyde at different exposures. Winter mornings can be so pretty.

 
 

Moody Landscapes

Are these landscapes? I don’t know. Cranes. Lots of cranes. Anyway, been shooting some moody scenery lately, though that’s not been entirely down to me, we can blame the Scottish winter for that. At least it showed how dirty my sensor is. Wow, I’m embarrassed. When I return I’ll have a clean sensor and will inject some colour into this blog.

 
 

Laurence Deveney

Been on a bit of a lens flare kick lately. You may not recognise him as a result, but this is Laurence, who I recently shot at the Sugar Sheds in Greenock. We went for coffee yesterday, which was a perfect day for it, followed by food and drink at Lebowskis. Okay, I have been in Lebowskis a few times now as it’s very close to my home, but I didn’t realise they had 22 varieties of White Russians, which is obviously what The Dude in The Big Lebowski drinks. I’m going to make my way through them all, try and stop me!

 
 
 
 

Street Shots

Yeah, seems I’m itching to do street photography every weekend now. Saw lots of interesting characters today with it being the lead up to Christmas, which means Glasgow is swarming. This is good because it means people don’t notice the girl with the camera so much (which people do, and they stare at you like you’re a fucking weirdo), even if Indie does draw attention to me by barking at pigeons. Anyway, for whatever reason I wasn’t on the ball with my shots today, so I came away a little disheartened.

 
 

Street Shots on Halloween Weekend

While shopping around for my Halloween costume (which is so far a secret, but I can reveal it is of course video game themed), I took my camera into town for some candid, street photography. I’ve been really digging street stuff lately; you never know what you’ll come away with or who you’ll see. Today I came across a parade of men dressed as penguins, as well as a group of kilted gentlemen.

 
 

Eruption

Yesterday I had a bit of a strange day in which I erupted like a volcano. Actually, to anybody that really knows me, that isn’t strange — I do have a temper. My friend had been badgering me to help her shoot her pal’s portfolio; she didn’t have the confidence to do it alone and needed me to give her pointers with her camera. I agreed, but when I turned up my friend didn’t have her camera. I felt the wool had been pulled over my eyes, that I thought I was doing my friend a favour but now I was giving up my Sunday to shoot someone’s portfolio for free. The worst part is I didn’t get a thanks from the person who’s portfolio I was shooting.

Sometimes I feel so alienated from my generation, and this is a prime example of why. A generation that, while I’m massively generalising, seems to have been brought up without a decent work ethic or basic manners.

I had words with my friend and she assured me she hadn’t meant to take advantage, and everything is cool between us now. On a positive note, that’s the sign of a good friendship — when you can blow off steam and talk it out in the end.

 
 

The Jesus Dude

A bit of street photography for you. This man has an amplifier, a microphone, fliers and a mission to spend his days preaching to the passers by in Glasgow about faith, society and Jesus etc. Kudos to him for being passionate about it, but I don’t think people take so kindly to having beliefs thrust upon them. We can all figure out our faith, or lack of, on our own. Right?

 
 

Ella

What a great weekend I’ve had, totally lowkey and very relaxing. I feel energised and ready for work tomorrow!

I finished my weekend off with a walk through Kelvingrove Park with Sheryl and her pug, Ella. The rain had cleared up and there was a pleasant autumnal chill in the air… if you know what I mean. You know what I mean, right? I think this is my favourite time of the year, and I’m so glad to be back in the city for it.

 
 

Sunday Street Shots

Some simple street shots I took today in Glasgow. Everybody was miserable; it seems the average British person’s mood hinges on how the weather is. Also, I wonder what video game the geek with the GAME bag was taking home.
