In The Gothic Gloom

Lockdown blues had got to me before. Late last summer, I was becoming a little bored of streetscapes and cityscapes and wanted to do something more interesting. Before the woodlands and the countryside’s came a trip one Saturday afternoon to Woodside Crematorium in Paisley to capture the atmosphere here… It was a trip partly inspiredContinue reading “In The Gothic Gloom”

When I Tried To Go To Loch Humphry

Last summer i was moaning about being bored about taking pics of Paisley and city centre pics of Glasgow. One of my work colleagues had mentioned that they had gone on a walk to Loch Humphry (from Kilpatrick on the north bank of the Clyde, right next to the Erskine Bridge). With a week offContinue reading “When I Tried To Go To Loch Humphry”

Still Winter…

Took a walk up to Gleniffer Braes last weekend, just to blow away the cobwebs, and came away with a couple of shots that in still the feeling of wilderness… March Storm: Gleniffer Braes, Paisley, 20 March 2021, F/8.0, 1/125s, ISO 100, 50mm Wilderness: Gleniffer Braes, Paisley, 20 March 2021, F/8.0, 1/125s, ISO 100, 50mm

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”

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”

A Winters Tale

Here in Paisley, we’ve not had any snow for nearly 3 years. The last heavy snows in the West of Scotland arrived at the end of February 2018. Or at least that was the case until a couple of weeks ago. So, one Saturday morning, I got up early and took the 20 odd minuteContinue reading “A Winters Tale”

The Best Point And Click Pic Ever

Mount Teide, Tenerife, 29 April 2009 – F/3, 1/13s ISO 100 As I said in my ‘about me’ blurb, I’d dabbled in photography on and off up till 2 years ago. I used point and click film cameras, even getting an Advantix Camera in the early 00’s up until 2006 I think. My first forayContinue reading “The Best Point And Click Pic Ever”

I’ve now decided to go back to blogging, but not as you would know it. I’mContinue reading “Let Me Reintroduce Myself”
