A walk in the west

I had to go and get some keys cut up at Anniesland, but the hint of rain had made the air so fresh that I took the waterproofs and set off for a four-hour walk through Glasgow’s West End.

And sure enough, by the time I’d come out of the hardware shop, the drizzle was on. I braved it for a few minutes but finally stopped to take shelter under some trees and don the waterproofs. It occurred to me that I’d passed this pond so often along Great Western Road, but had never taken a closer look._MG_9831

On my way back were the colourful scenes at the front of tenement blocks.

No walk though the West End is complete without a stopover at Hargan’s Dairy. Re-exposed to the elements for almost a decade now, the 1960s lettering is peeling fast.

Ups and downs in Lisbon

One can be as bad as the other, but the ups are usually worse.

A quiet day in Hoi An

It was a hot day and the air heavy. Not a day for doing much._MG_7780

Walks, shoots and leaves

All work and little play these days. No much time to linger looking for inspiring landscapes. Still, a short walk, a few shots and back is better than no walk at all.
