The view from on top of the Lighthouse is pretty great. Glasgow has an urban grit that I’ve heard many compare to Philly. Do you think they are right?
Looks like an “end scene” shot, well it was our last full day in Glasgow. Glasgow has a lot of cool stuff hidden away in alleys. This was from the top of The Lighthouse, a center for design and architecture, and hilarious washroom signs.
My library life has injected itself in most things I see and do now. One recent development is applying descriptive terms to everyday life. Unlocked a new level of nerd? FTW! These are the true quacks. Do not take their medical advice, but you can be their friend. [Shot in Pollock Park, Glasgow, Scotland]
Hello hello hello!
I have totally dropped the ball and failed to post for far too long. This does not mean I haven’t been up to fun and creative things, but I hope to be posting more regularly starting NOW. What is better than starting off with a trip? I just got back from SCOTLAND and have lots of photos to share, and lots of drawings in my head yet to hit the page. Above is an Instax of me in front of Edinburgh Castle, and below is Shawn (left), with our wonderful hosts, Dave & Alex (right, center), in Pollock Park. Much more to come, so pleased stay tuned.
Also, I post a lot on my Artist Page on Facebook – many works in progress or quick drawings.
During my last trip to Glasgow, I checked out the new Riverside Museum (aka the Museum of Transport). It was really comprehensive and interactive. The building is located on the River Clyde where a lot of shipbuilding took place and there was a lot devoted to that history. I especially loved the old timey Glasgow street equipped with local shops of the era and especially ornate double-decker trolley cars. I sketched this trolley en route to Maryhill using my pocket sketchbook.
