As many friends already know, I’m currently back in Scotland following the death of my 84 year old father. We said our goodbyes at his memorial service a week past on Friday and I’ve been helping clear his house and generally put his affairs in order since.
While this isn’t exactly a happy trip, it has been quite lovely to see so many old friends and relatives again, some for the first time in 30 years! With so little time to catch up following Dad’s service, I arranged to meet some of my oldest school friends for dinner in Glasgow on Wednesday and went in to the city early to wander around and do a bit of photography down by the River Clyde. Accompanying me on this endeavor was another, somewhat newer friend, John Farnan, who jumped on a train and spent a few hours wandering around with me, introducing me to some of Glasgow’s newest architectural wonders.
Among our targets was the SSE Hydro building seen here. It’s a large performance venue right next to the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre on the banks of the Clyde. As well as being a rather stunning building, I gather it’s also a great place to hear performances from some of the country’s best bands.
John was shooting with a 120 roll film pinhole camera and you can find his image of the same building here. You can also see a gallery of his other pinhole images at https://www.johnfarnan.co.uk/Projects/Pinhole-images/. It’s pretty impressive what can be done without any lens at all 🙂
