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”

Some Murals…

Long weekend last weekend, i had some things to pick up and also some things to look at… Things needing a camera. Little Japanese Girl: Side of Japan Street Food, Niddry Street, Paisley, 26 March 2021,, F/8.0, 1/50s, ISO 100, 30mm First up is the above Mural, which i’d spotted on the bus home fromContinue reading “Some Murals…”

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

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”

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”

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”
