Glasgow (Glaschu in Gaelic; or Glesca/Glesga in Scots) is the largest city in Scotland. Formerly a royal burgh, Glasgow was known as the "Second City of the British Empire" in the Victorian era.^ The City of Glasgow is also the most populous unitary authority area. It is situated on the River Clyde in the country's west central lowlands.
As befits a city that was at its richest through the 19th century and at the beginning of the 20th, the centre of Glasgow has a fine legacy of Victorian and Edwardian buildings with their lavish interiors and spectacular carved stonework. Outside of the central area the main streets are lined with the legendary tenements - the city's trademark 2 or 3 storey residential buildings built from red or blonde sandstone which positively glow during the summer. Sadly, the decline of Glasgow's economy during the mid to late 20th Century led to the mass construction of high-rise tower blocks and concrete housing estates during the 1960's and 1970s which has left a scar on the city's suburbs. The damage has only recently began to be mended with many of the high rises being demolished or externally facelifted; and many of the poorly thought out 1970s office buildings in the centre have been cleared away by state-of-the-art glass structures as Glasgow's burgeoning financial services industry continues to grow.
Glasgow was also the home of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, one of the "Glasgow Four" a group of leading proponents of art nouveau architecture. Indeed, during his lifetime, Mackintosh was probably better regarded abroad than he was in his native Glasgow, even apparently inspiring Frank Lloyd Wright. However, recently resurrected as one of the cities most beloved sons. You will notice, along with quite a few of his buildings to see in the city, including his magnum opus, the Glasgow School of Art, many other knock-offs and impersonations exist.
The following list is a selection of significant buildings in Glasgow.
- The Clyde Auditorium, affectionately known by Glaswegians as the Armadillo, is a stunning building which forms part of the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre .
- The imposing City Chambers in George Square was built in 1888 in Italian Renaissance style and is the headqurters of Glasgow City Council. Tours of the building are available daily, and visitors can see the magnificent marble staircases, lobbies, see the debating chamber and the lavish banqueting hall. More information from the city council website.
- Glasgow Cathedral is a fine example of Gothic architecture dating from medieval times and built on a site first consecrated in 397 AD.
- Glasgow School of Art, Renfrew Street . Seen as one of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's finest buildings and is one of Britain's pre-eminent schools of art, design and architecture. Guided tours of the building are available (you must book in advance), or if you want to create your own art in the building, you can enrol for evening classes or the summer school.
- Glasgow University, University Avenue . Contains the Hunterian Museum and Art Gallery, including a reconstruction of Mackintosh's house. The exterior is fine in its own right; the current main University building is of the neo-gothic and dates from 1870, although the University as an institution is much older, being founded in 1451. The front of the building commands views over Kelvingrove Park and the western fringes of the city.
- The House for an Art Lover, Bellahouston Park . Built in the 1990s to Mackintosh's original 1901 entry for a design competition. Opening times vary. £3.50.
- Scotland Street School, 225 Scotland Street . Charles Rennie Mackintosh's last major building - thoughtfully designed, with an excellent museum covering both Mackintosh and the changing faces of schools. Open daily. Free.
If this just whets your appetite for information on Glasgow's architecture, try and get hold of a copy of , by Charles McKean and others. There are various editions (ISBN:1873190220, ISBN:1851582002, ISBN:1851582010).

Blue Jumble, Cochliostema jacobianum, Glasgow Botanic Gardens, Scotland
Made by Rana Pipiens
In 832 King Óengus (=Angus) of the Picts and Scots did battle with King Athelstan of the Angles. At night both armies had a vision in the dark blue sky of St Andrew being martyred upon a white Saltire. Apparently, Óengus believed, and he was duly rewarded with victory. Henceforth Saint Andrew's cross upon Blue is the Scottish Flag. This engaging tale came into my mind as I chanced upon this absolutely blue and wonderful Cochliostema in the Glasgow Botanic Gardens. It has been known to 'the West' only since 1847. First it had the name Cochliostema odoratissimum (= Most Odorous Spiral-shell Stamens). Put on show by him at the International Horticultural Exhibition held in Paris in 1867, Jean Jules Linden (1817-1898) - the great Luxemburg-born Belgian horticulturalist - and Karl Heinrich Koch (1809-1879) from Germany renamed it to 'Cochliostema jacobianum'. Georg Albano von Jacobi (1805-1874) was a Prussian army general who had as an avocation tropical, especially American botany. He was an expert on agaves - their swordlike nature must have appealed to a soldier! - as was Koch who, though disagreeing with him on occasion, had a great admiration for that military man. 'In captivity' - in the Glasgow glasshouse - it gave no wonderful aroma, at least I didn't smell any, so the renaming may have been justified! Apparently the first of these plants that blossomed in the United Kingdom was at the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew in the early 1950s. That plant had been presented to the English plant collector L. Maurice Mason by Ernest Imle, who had brought it to Baltimore, Maryland, where he had been successful in cultivating it after his return from Costa Rica in 1948. An epiphyte it usually lives on other plants and trees, although it was potted here in Glasgow. But just imagine traipsing through the jungle and suddenly seeing this Blue above; it might be mistaken for the Saltire.

Vivitar Ultra Wide & Slim + Redscaled Konica Minolta VX Super 200. This image reached #1 in Explore on Thursday May 09th 2008, so I guess some part of the questions asked below resonated with some people. Thanks everyone, I really appreciate the time you've given this one. I had no idea it would 'travel' the way it did! :) Is this image worth looking at? Would it be more or less worthwhile to look at if it weren't in the catchy colours of redscale? Does the colour of redscale detract from the importance of subject and composition or are such things even MORE important? What's the difference between redscaling film and sticking a red filter in front of any camera lens? All these questions and more, are some that I am wrestling with photographically at this time. Taken when ...meh... and I, met one of our fabulous flickr contacts while we were in Glasgow. Redscaling. Basically it involves taking a roll of ordinary 'bog standard' print film, reversing it and respooling it into another film cannister (all done in a dark bag) so that the light is exposed on 'the wrong side of the film' when you take a shot. You then lose two 'stops' on the optimal exposure conditions from the original. It gets developed in exactly the same way as print film, but be prepared for the technician to be a little startled (at best) or a little irritated (at worst) when they realise that something very odd has happened to the film. :) NB: . All 24 images are now up. If you have any (further) views about which three I should submit for possible publication in the related Blurb book, I'd still love to see them. Thankyou again. :)
A Blush for a Lady: Neoregelia Carolinae in Glasgow, Scotland
Made by Rana Pipiens
Caroline Morren in 1856 must have been very pleased. The wife of the authority on Bromeliads Charles Jacques Édouard Morren (1833-1886) - the director of the botanical garden of Liège, Belgium, with the largest collection of Bromeliads in the world -, her husband's friend, the German botanist Johann Georg Beer (1803-1873), had just returned from South America. There in Brazil, not far from Rio de Janeiro, he had found this particularly beautiful Bromeliad, and he named it after her: Neoregelia Carolinae. We know it today as the Blushing Bromeliad, turning red just before it flowers. Thirty years later, when Morren had died, his widow sold his manuscripts and herbaria to the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew. Thus she stimulated far-reaching research into Bromeliads by the English. It is indeed fitting that one of these marvellous plants was named for her! This particular beauty was seen in the Glasgow Botanic Garden. First established in 1817 at the western end of Sauchiehall Street, it was soon moved to a pretty site on the banks of the Kelvin River. Its enormous and wonderful glass house was built by John Kibble in the 1860s at Loch Long. But in 1872 it was moved by barge to the present place. It is affectionately - and rightly - called Kibble's Palace. Just restored it is a most wondrous place. Moreover, it is a good shelter from the cloud bursts we experienced at the weekend in Glasgow. We desisted in descending the valley gorge to see the Kelvin and took a bus instead to the art galleries of Kelvingrove!
Churches of Scotland - Glasgow Cathedral
Made by jackfre2
Had Glasgow Cathedral fallen in the Reformation, a thousand years of history would have been lost. The Cathedral's origins date back to about AD550 when St Mungo, also known as St Kentigern, founded a religious community here around a small church. Today this church is the site of the Blacader Aisle in the Lower Church of the cathedral, the structure that extends beyond the very short South Transept. What you see here is a chapel in that lower church in the Blacader Aisle After his death on 13 January 614, St Mungo was buried close to his church. His tomb today lies in the centre of the Lower Choir, probably on the actual site of his grave. St Mungo's original church was built of wood, and was probably changed and enlarged over the following five centuries. The first stone church on the site was consecrated in the presence of King David I in 1136 and occupied the area now covered by the nave, with part of the earlier church probably surviving off to one side. This first stone church was destroyed or badly damaged by fire within a very short time, and its replacement was consecrated in 1197 by Bishop Jocelin. The earliest significant parts of what you can see today are the walls of the nave, up to the level of the bottoms of the windows. These date back to the next round of rebuilding, in the early 1200s. In the mid 1200s much of the rest of the cathedral appeared: in particular the upper and lower choirs were added to the east end of the nave.

During the January snows, [Paul Chambers'] hopes of a blind date with a woman he'd chatted up on Twitter were jeopardised by the closure of his local airport. He tweeted from his mobile to his 600 followers: Crap! Robin Hood airport is closed. You've got a week and a bit to get your shit together, otherwise I'm blowing the airport sky high! He was subsequently arrested, interrogated by detectives for seven hours and fired from his accountancy job. Last week he was found guilty of sending a menacing electronic message and fined £1,000. This is the kind of incredible story I hear every so often and think can't possibly be true, like that ridiculous one about the EU trying to ban bananas that weren't straight. That got so much press coverage and became a very popular example of the so-called evil of the EU, but it was completely untrue. Paul Chambers' story, however, is very much true. Perhaps the only good thing to come out of it is this insightful and hilarious article by David Mitchell. It had me laughing out loud, proper belly laughs, like no piece of prose has since I first discovered the work of PG Wodehouse or Charlie Brooker. Glasgow, 2010.
This is Bothwell Castle (at night)
Made by xxxrmt
Bothwell Castle is a large medieval castle sited on a high, steep bank, above a bend in the River Clyde, in South Lanarkshire, Scotland. It is located between Uddingston and Bothwell, about 10 miles (16 km) south-east of Glasgow. Construction of the castle was begun in the 13th century by the ancestors of Clan Murray, to guard a strategic crossing point of the Clyde. Bothwell played a key role in Scotland's Wars of Independence, changing hands several times. The huge cylindrical Donjon was built in the 13th century, but before the rest of the castle was completed it was severely damaged in a series of sieges. Rebuilding in the early 15th century enlarged the castle, but it was abandoned by the 18th century. The present ruin is rectangular, with the remains of the Donjon to the west, and the later Great Hall to the east. The courtyard is enclosed by long curtain walls, with round towers at the south-east and south-west corners.

Reflections of Glasgow (1)
Made by Shuggie!!
As a result of the on-going redevelopment of the city centre of Glasgow, the traditionally-architectured buildings sit cheek-by-jowl with their modern (mostly glass-fronted) counterparts. Contrary to a significant section of public opinion, the traditional buildings are not always beautiful - some are downright ugly - and the newcomers are not always futuristic monstrosities. In many cases, the juxta-positioning of the old and the new is, in my view, eminently complementary. The shot shows the distorted reflections of a traditional building in the glass frontage of an office block across the street .. with the distortions giving the shot a definite abstract feel. The original shot was fairly flat and lacked punch .. the HDR conversion was carried out to rectify that. View Large On Black
Voltaire & Rousseau
Made by wil_freeborn
It was one of those good easy going days after lunch in Heart Buchanan then off to Voltaire & Rousseau with Ella who was after some books as research for a portrait of famous Weegies. Books are everywhere here, in manic lopsided piles so you have to dodge people (its always quite busy) and try not to bump into and knock over any books, it always happens though and everyone is pretty used to it. I asked on the off chance that they may have some old account ledgers for lapin, and the owner said there was one just at the front of the desk this morning, since then they had a few book collapses and its been lost somewhere in the midst of the store. Nothing to See Here has a great article about the place
Disused train tunnel
Made by duncan
This tunnel leads onto another bit of tunnel that is still live, looking directly onto a station platform. I walked down here swinging my torch around before I realised people on the platform could probably see my light coming towards them. I turned back, but when I reached the cutting pictured above, I could hear voices coming towards me. Another trainline crosses overhead at this gap, and I assumed I'd been rumbled and some railway workers were on their way to apprehend me. Nowhere to run or hide, so I sat down and waited here, which gave me time to take this photo. The guys must just have been doing regular maintenance work on the other line, because the voices abated after about 20 minutes, and I continued back out. added to as my most favourited (and also it's my 'most interesting') photo

Kev, renowned among his friends for his impatience and short temper, shared a gem of an anecdote with us the other night: Walking into the canteen of the company where he works, dressed in the purple skinny jeans he'd chosen to wear for dress down day, he noticed a few girls pointing and giggling at him. Among them was one who, according to office gossip, has had a boob job. What's so funny? He asked sternly from some distance, allowing a lot of the people around to hear, and listen in on the exchange. Nothing, nothing one girl replied. I saw you laughing, so obviously something's amusing. ..... we just thought your jeans were a bit funny. Well, frankly, Shirley, I find your tits hilarious, but I have the good manners not to laugh about them in front of your face. Glasgow, 2009.

Dad and I went to see Michael Palin, whom we both admire, speak at Glasgow's Royal Concert Hall yesterday to promote the second volume of his diaries. As entertaining as expected, but unfortunately the signing was very hurried, Palin barely looking up from the book to see for whom it was being signed, let alone exchange any pleasantries. During his talk he mentioned a skit that he and Terry Jones once worked on but which I don't think was ever realised, in which advertising had taken over the world, in which, for example, the Royal Family were called The Sony Royal Family: the Royals needed the money, and Sony wanted some advertising... I found it quite ironic, then, to see a large backdrop behind Palin as he signed: Waterstone's Michael Palin.
Phillipe Zdar of Cassius
Made by TGKW
Phillipe Zdar is one half of the excellent Cassius. Check out a song here (but I'd recommend some decent speakers) and see him on a Yamaha CS80 here. This photograph was taken in unfavourable circumstances. Light was hugely unpredictable, changing moment by moment, as were his movements. In short, exposure, composition and focus were very difficult. While my view is perhaps biased by the fact that I was able to produce anything passable under those conditions, I like this a lot. His face is very classical and, lit in this way, Kenny said it reminded him of a Velasquez. Glasgow, 2010.

Last night I watched Wong Kar-Wai's My Blueberry Nights, his first English language film. I'd read and heard mixed reviews, so it has taken a long time to reach the top of the to-watch pile. I never knew what I was missing. I spent half of the film literally open-mouthed, in awe. It is the most sickeningly beautiful film I've seen for a long time, and made me want to run out to the nearest bar with a camera over my shoulder (I didn't - they'd have been closed). So here's something I made earlier. I warmly recommend that you watch the trailer here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kac_uSP_pJY

Pollok Park in Glasgow, one minute it was throwing it down, the next the clouds were parting and a glorious sunset wove through the damp and dripping trees. Managed a few shots in the twilight as we walked back to the car park along the riverside. Geeknotes: (edited for clarity) some fill light added when processing the RAW in ACR and then in Photoshop a little shadows/highlights to restore shadow detail in the far bank. Then dupe self blend layer blended with screen mode and with 300px of 90degree motion blur. This layer then duped and changed to multiply blend. Final tarting using levels and curves.

If its cold outside, laundrette's make great places to draw with their comfy seats and warmth from all the machines. I think the woman who works must be used to photographers and drawers coming in as she nonchalantly was like sure on you go. Though I can't quite figure the place out, it has the look of a place that's been there for ages but so many things about it seem deliberately placed rather than an accumulation of random stuff. The walls are bare plaster, there's picture's by tretchikoff, detergent boxes piled up like Warhol, odd eclectic objects, lots of good things to draw.

Kirsty in the Tunnel

Shooting the tunnel at the SECC is practically a right of passage for the Glasgow photographer. I never made it until Easter just there though. Went a walk around the west end with Kirsty on a sunny day. She's a legend but she doesn't really like being in front of the camera, so I'm happy I got her to stand still this long to take her photo. I think I caught her quite well; she's got a great smile :) Hasselblad 500c/m, Planar 80mm, Kodak Portra 400NC, Tetenal Colortec C-41 kit
