Singin’ in the Rain Even When the Sun is Out I had a lovely afternoon with the cast of  Singin’ in the Rain as they made a splash at Doulton Fountain in Glasgow Green leading up to their performance at the Kings Theatre. A favourite in musical theatre, the show came to Glasgow for a week’s run. The colours in the costumes were magnificent…

Mum & Chicks Stop the Traffic I was walking from Blythswood Square to my car and a pal of mine sees this mummy duck with her duckling chicks walking along the street heading down to cross Bath Street and Sauchiehall Street. People were watching with a bit of in trepidation of how safe this walk was. Amazingly everyone was so kind looking out for…

Sunset on Another Year I do look forward to our trips to Tiree. It always makes for some super landscape and wildlife pictures. There is one spot I will rush off too. The beach at Sunset from Balevullin is a great spot to sit at. With the long summer evenings my sunset didn’t come until nearly 11pm. Looking Up at the Arc Just before the…

A Big Adventure With John Byrne I have always loved the work of artist John Byrne. I had his painting on the sleeves of the Steelers Wheel ‘Ferguslie Park’ LP record at my mum and dads house in Johnstone. I was so delighted to be asked to cover the opening of John Patrick Byrne – A Big Adventure. Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum has…

On a Bus with The Four Seasons Some days you gets photo calls where all your favourite things all happen at the one time. I am a fan of a bus tour, I like the theatre and I like a visit to the Baby Grand. I had the good fortune to be asked to cover the photo call for the production of the Oliver…

You Never Know Who You Will See at the Bus Stop I was never a huge Osmonds fan. Probably Donny & Marie were more my age group. I was photographing Jay Osmond who was at The Kings Theatre in Glasgow to launch his show ‘The Osmonds : A New Musical’. Written by Jay it tells the story of him and his brothers who became…

A Year In Pictures I spent some time going through my favourite pictures from 2021. I was worried that I might not have as many pictures to choose from, as we had spent so much of the year in covid restrictions and the lockdown of the first three months of 2021. When I put together my slide show I was really pleased with it….

Glasgow Basket Brigade Appeal Starts the Christmas Season I met a great bunch of people at their new offices on Bath Street. The Nine Twenty Recruitment team, instead of  participating in their Secret Santa, were supporting the Glasgow Basket Brigade Christmas Appeal. The team all  created and donated Christmas Gift Baskets. The Glasgow Basket Brigade is now in its third year.  The appeal was…

COP 26 November was such a busy month. I really didn’t think I would be having much to do with COP26. All the reports had been to stay away from the city and I thought let’s hope all my jobs are outside Glasgow. However all that quickly changed. I ended up working for an English, a Canadian and the United Arab Emirates clients for…
