Glasgow

We are in Glasgow. I’ve never been here before and have wanted to visit the city for some time so yesterday we caught the train from London to Glasgow which was a very fast 4.5 hour journey covering over 540km.

I love Glasgow. It has quite a distinctive look to it with lots of grand Victorian sandstone buildings and it is endearingly ragged around the edges. It’s also very walkable with good pedestrian routes and more green space per mile than any other UK city. Today we visited Glasgow University – the 4th oldest University in the English-speaking world – and nearby Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum as well as the very peaceful Kelvingrove Park.

  1. Amazing photos really like the second one from the last, the angle it was taken from and the shadow are what make this shot special to me. With photos like these no story is needed. Have I asked before what camera you use, I bet its a DSLR, I am guessing Canon ?
