The Lockdown 1… One Year On.

This week sees the first anniversary of the first occasion that the UK went into full lockdown to stop the spread of the SARS-COV-2 virus. That week was the first occasion where the streets were… well empty as an eerie silence descended. The Oncoming Nightmare; Dumbarton Road, Partick, 2 March 2020, F/18, 1/80s, ISO 400,Continue reading “The Lockdown 1… One Year On.”

Look West

Additional post this week. Accompanying the post about Coats Memorial Baptist Church, here’s a pic that shows how much it dominates the Paisley skyline. I do hope you like it as I nearly slid and fell into the Barshaw Park mud heading accross to the top of the hill (not something you see a lotContinue reading “Look West”

The Jewel In The Crown

As i intimated a couple of weeks ago, Paisley Abbey is not my favourite building in Paisley. It is a beautiful building that is difficult to take a bad picture of, but it is edged out, in my mind, by the Coats Memorial Church. Catch The Sun: 7 June 2008, F/3, 1/11s, ISO 100 AllContinue reading “The Jewel In The Crown”

I Go Out Walking

Will be doing a post next week about my favourite building in Paisley (as i hinted at in my Paisley Abbey post). Till then, 2 long exposure shots from a couple of weeks ago. Rush Hour: Junction 27, M8 at Arkleston, Paisley, 26 February 2021, F/18.0, 13s, ISO 100, 49.0mm To The Centre Of TheContinue reading “I Go Out Walking”

On The Waterfront

With the current COVID lockdown continuing, I thought I’d share some pics from the last shoot I did from outside of Paisley. As it happens, that shoot took place at the start of last November when I ventured down to sunny Govan to take some shots of Pacific Quay. A location I hadn’t taken picturesContinue reading “On The Waterfront”

West of Scotland Vistas

The last period of snow here in Scotland (about 2 weeks ago) saw me head up to the Glenburn Reservoir to try and get some countryside shots. I did get some winter shots (the tree on my Instagram feed as an example) but the most impressive shots were telephoto shots of over and across theContinue reading “West of Scotland Vistas”

Up At The Farm/Down At The Scheme

So far this winter we have had 3 periods of snow in the west of Scotland, the second period came at the end of the second week in January. I was originally going to post just the shot i took at Brownside Farm, but i thought i’d include the minimalist black and white shots takenContinue reading “Up At The Farm/Down At The Scheme”

Paisley Abbey Through The Cameras

One of Paisley’s most famous buildings is it’s abbey. Founded in the 12th century, it is Paisley’s number one tourist attraction. I find it a building that is difficult not to take a good picture of. Having said that, it is not my favourite building in Paisley. 24 December 2006, F/3.0, 1/11s ISO 100 –Continue reading “Paisley Abbey Through The Cameras”
