This evening, went into the centre of Glasgow to take some festive season images. Unfortunately, I just missed a ceilidh but way of consolation obtained some reasonable images of the Christmas Fair Ground.

This first pic was actually taken a couple of days ago; a patriotic trader displaying his wares in St. Vincent Street.


The following images were taken a few hours ago. The attractions were well patronised notwithstanding a cold and foggy evening.

This morning was cold and crisp but with good visibility. I took off to nearby Queen’s Park which is elevated and offers some good views over Glasgow.

The area from where the following pics were taken is actually the site of the Battle of Langside (May 13th 1568) which marked the final defeat of Mary Queen of Scots.

The following two images are looking north towards Glasgow City with Queen’s Park churches in the foreground


Looking south towards Pollockshaws and Thornliebank

Here are a couple of young mothers and children feeding the birds.

This afternoon, I took myself down to Glasgow to commence a task of photographing the main pubs. Weather was fine, dry and sunny but because of the time of year the light faded about 3.30pm.

Here is Fat Boab’s in Dixon Street



Here is Buchanans in Howard Street

Here is The Scotia Bar in Stockwell Street which is, allegedly, the oldest pub in Glasgow dating from 1792. Promotional material states:

Oldest Pub in Glasgow
Bravest Face in the World
Cheekiest welcome in the World

More pics to come.
