It’s just a guy skating around in an aviation hat, that’s all.
Today was one of those perfect Sundays; beautiful weather and an impromptu meet-up with a friend at Kelvingrove park. It’s strange, but walking a mere 15 minutes from my house makes me feel like I’m completely outwith Glasgow. Or at the very least it makes Glasgow feel less like a city. The real estate is completely different to the area I live in, I just found it all really charming.
I still consider myself a relative newcomer to sushi. Despite trying it for the first time in ’09, I was subjected solely to supermarket sushi due to Inverclyde’s lack of oriental restaurants. Now I’m living in Glasgow I have quite a lot of Japanese eateries at my disposal. Today Emma took me to OKO Express, an intimate canteen-style restaurant on Queen Street, Glasgow.
The sushi was real good, but I’ve had better noodles elsewhere.
This was a fun and varied shoot I did for a local fashion company, with a focus on a unique tailoring experience and high quality products. I got to satisfy my desire to shoot candid (photographing the in-store tailors as they worked), and taking models outdoors for some shots. The weather was on my side, and the indoor environment I shot in quite inspiring. Win!
I tried zoning in on the details that made the store unique; focusing on the fashion magazines that were laying around serving as inspiration to the tailors, as well as capturing the tailors working on the fine details of the clothing. They were pretty wired in to their work, I don’t think they even noticed me.
Usually on shoots I find myself mainly using my trusty 50mm, but this was the odd occasion where the 28mm gave it a run for its money.
So now I’m a fully fledged city girl, my biggest concern has been my dog and where to walk her. Prior to living in Glasgow, she was surrounded by beaches and woodlands (in other words, every dog’s dream). In the city, she’s surrounded by industrial estates and motorways. Luckily for me, I have a great friend who owns a pug, Ella, and showed me a nearby park, resulting in this post — pug in the park!
