Kelvingrove Museum

This week has been heavy and intense and busy and at 4.30pm today I looked up from my computer and thought “Shit, I need some social interaction”. Two other friends had blown me off, which set my craving for some company into overdrive. It was “taps aff” in Glasgow, so Lindsay and I grabbed a coffee or two at Kelvingrove and enjoyed the sun and some random banter with the locals. Love Glasgow.

 
 

Kay Slater on Newark Street

I first met Kay in February when I was shooting for Parma Vintage on Asos Marketplace. We swapped details so we could do a proper shoot at a later date, and that time came yesterday. I headed to Newark Street in Greenock where the Cherry Blossom trees are in full bloom and the properties are old, Victorian buildings. Basically, it’s a pretty sweet location to shoot with a lot of surroundings to utilise.

Yesterday was a pleasant reminder why I love photography.

 
 

Charlene Kerr

A fellow drummer, although I feel dirty calling myself one these days, Charlene and I met at music college and quickly became friends. We decided to walk towards Paisley one sunny evening with Indie, my dog. Three hours later and I was actually carrying my pup home because she was exhausted. I am enjoying these lighter, warmer evenings. Keep it up, Mother Nature.

 
 

Argyll Forestry

After spending most of last Summer distracted, I made a conscious decision to really embrace this Summer and lose myself in many outdoor activities. And so, with the proposed weather of  18°, a couple of friends and I went to Argyll Forestry for a mammoth Sunday morning walk, following it up with a pub lunch by the sea. It was the most perfect Sunday I’ve had in a long time; great weather, good company, nature and stodgy food.

 
 

Friends Outside ABC

Popped along to the ABC 2 last night to catch my friend’s band play. To be honest the lighting in the venue was shite. I mean ISO 12,800 kind of shite. Anyway, Johnny And The Bomb (my friend’s band) are playing next Thursday (18th of August) in Pivo Pivo if you fancy them. They’re getting good feedback but are brand new on the scene.

 
 

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…

 
 

French Lollipops In A Scottish Fishing Village

I hate to be the cliché that every British person is by bringing the weather into it, but seriously, we had Summer for a whole 4 consecutive days this year! We caught the last of it yesterday evening by taking my Mini to Arrochar, investigating an abandoned house, getting food posion (I don’t think James will be rushing back to McDonalds any time soon), and watching suicidal kayakers. It’s nights like these that make Summer special.

 
 

The Great Scottish Outdoors

This has to be the hottest day of the year so far, right? My pink shoulders are testament to this. My friend and I decided to jump in the Mini, speed out of the city and spend the day beach and forest hopping. We also brought my dog, Indie, which was a bit of a gamble as she doesn’t travel well, but we all had lots of fun. Gah, Scotland is so pretty!

 
 

Glasgow’s Gallery of Modern Art

A reflection of Glasgow’s Royal Exchange Square in a pair of sunglasses, in particular the Gallery of Modern Art. I’m loving this warm weather we’re experiencing. This was taken while enjoying some al fresco Mojitos yesterday afternoon at The Social.

 
 

Early Summer Nights

These warm evenings are making me feel summery, even if it is only April. I can’t wait to get some garden furniture for my terrace and enjoy a few ice cold ciders out there. Last night, however, my friend Gary and I enjoyed dinner and Diet Cokes at Nando’s. Seriously, you can’t go wrong with a Nando’s, but a Nando’s at golden hour = perfection.
