Bax-Street Blog: Street Style

We’re back with the next entry in our Bax Street Blog, where we stop people in the street with an interesting style and take a picture. We ventured back into the City Centre of Glasgow, which seemed to be an especially busy day. As usual, Carolyn did the style spotting and I took the pictures. A few people have said they’d quite fancy some male fashion too. Never say never.

 
 

The River 68’s

Yesterday I got to meet The River 68’s, thanks to one of my pals doing their photos and of course asking me along. I felt like I was walking around Glasgow with a modern Led Zeppelin — look at their hair! Seriously, really nice guys and their music is great as well. They’re playing this Saturday at Captain’s Rest in the West End.

 
 

Bax-Street Blog: Street Style

We’re back with the next entry in our Bax Street Blog, where we stop people in the street with an interesting style and take a picture. We took to the West End of Glasgow this time, which, ultimately, wasn’t the greatest idea I’ve ever had with how quiet it was on a Tuesday lunchtime. Still, I’m always so surprised by how friendly some of the girls we stop are, even if they decline to have their picture taken.

Over the next few weeks we will be taking to Edinburgh and seeing what the fashion is like there.

 
 

Glasgow Characters

These are some of the characters I came across in Glasgow today, which was very busy because Brad Pitt is filming his latest movie in George Square. Blah blah, if you’re from Glasgow you’ll actually be sick of hearing about it. If you’re inGlasgow you can’t help but gravitate towards the set, which has seen George Square convert into Philadelphia. I dunno, it’s interesting for us Brits to see the funny traffic lights and big, American trucks. We’re easily amused.

 
 

Felix and Oscar

Felix and Oscar is one of many cute and quirky shops in the West End of Glasgow. I didn’t catch the name of the owner, but when he was chatting to my sister I took his picture. Oh, and I totally bought a cook book from this shop! (I can’t cook.)

 
 

Bax-Street Blog: Street Style

My sister and I have been wanting to collaborate on something for a while, marrying my love of photography with Carolyn’s eye for fashion. This is the first in our street style blog, which we’ve named Bax-Street Blog (our surname is Baxter, how witty are we?). We’ll be mainly taking to the streets of Glasgow where we’ll photograph some of the styles that capture our attention.

Glasgow is a stylish city, but the difference in fashion from the City Centre and West End is palpable. Our first outing saw us on one of Glasgow’s busiest streets for shopping, Buchanan Street, right in the heart of the city. Tomorrow we’ll be spending an hour or so in the West End of Glasgow. Feedback appreciated!

 
 

Gerry Ness

If you look through my Flickr stream, 99.9% of the photos are naturally light. I woke up with an itch to shoot with my 430EXII today, probably because I’ve been on my case lately about not getting complacent / comfortable / whatever with my camera. I mean, I want to keep learning and delving out of my comfort zone. I’ve had my flash for an age, yet I rarely use it. Funnily enough, my favourite photos from today were the ones I actually shot with flash. I want to try the same again tomorrow, and the next day…

 
 

Gary At Finnieston

I woke up today itching to take a photo. Like, chicken pox kind of itchy. Hopefully I get to scratch it later today, but for now here’s a photo of Mr O’Hagan, making a return appearance on my blog. We haven’t seen one another for what felt like a long time, and he randomly turned up at my house yesterday. Oh Hai. We went for coffee and dinner. There’s another one on my Flickr.

 
 

Glasgow

A girly day shopping in Glasgow with my sister, Carolyn. On my agenda was a new camera bag, more like a rucksack than the ‘off the shoulder’ one I currently have. However, the staff in Jessops jump all over you and it put me off buying anything if I’m honest. Wouldn’t it be great to have a camera shop managed by photographers, not salesmen?

 
 

The Hidden Lane Tearoom

The Hidden Lane Tearoom is true to its name, tucked away in a charismatic courtyard that you have to venture down a discreet alley off of Argyle Street to get to. I went with Shona, who was the perfect person to discover this gem with as she enjoys her vintage crockery, classic tea and so on. We went late afternoon when it wasn’t busy, which was good as this place is tiny. The food was good, chai tea was on the menu, and the general atmosphere of the place was… different, but definitely in a good way.
