Glasgow’s always pretty but on this particular day, it was pretty foggy.
Buchanan Street is one of my favourite streets in Glasgow (Despite the fact that it’s full of shops) and like everyone else, I know that it’s best photographed from the top of the steps of The Royal Concert Hall. But there are a couple of problems with photographing Buchanan Street from those steps.
The first problem is that your photos are gonna be similar to the photos of the hundreds of people who take photos from there every day. The second problem is that Glasgow City Council are planning to demolish those steps. But don’t get me started on that because that’s a story for another day.
That day, there was only one thing for it. I had to get access to the roof of the Concert Hall. So that’s what I did…
As you can see, I’m never gonna win any awards for my lack of photographic skills and I didn’t realise until later that I had an annoying fake ‘Fisheye’ setting turned on whilst I was up there but I hope you like the pictures nonetheless. I don’t like heights but it was great to see Glasgow from up there.
If you’d like to see a few more photos from that day, take a look at my 500px account HERE.
As usual, if you steal my photos and use them somewhere, I will find out and I will kill you.
For all enquiries and for tips on how not to be killed, drop me a line here: firstname.lastname@example.org
Tell me that I sent ya!
