Floor Level

I was over attending the International Summit on Building Blocks, featuring Andrew and Helen (who'd come over to visit from Edinburgh with Katie). As you can see, the negotiations went well...

Snow Ghost

Snow and Mirrors

I went into town today to meet up with Jonathan, whom I hadn't seen for ages, and who let me take lots of really bad photos of him over coffee. This one turned out quite well though, in an oddly lit kind of way, and I rather like it.
I'd taken the train working on the assumption that it would be quicker since I wouldn't need to find somewhere to park it at the other end, but this wasn't necessarily true as it turns out they only run about 3 trains a day on a Sunday. So I had to hang about the platform taking photos for a while. (It's true that they didn't make me park the train though, which was a relief...)

I'd set off wearing my lovely pink sandshoes, which may have been a mistake...

I might have been better off with the lovely spotted wellies instead (are you satisfied now, Morag? ;-)

Paisley looking lovely in the snow...

Exchange Place

This one seems to have a touch of "1984" about it, with the big screen at the end of Buchanan Street...

Back home, it seems that it's nearly impossible to escape the terrible onslaught of Valentine's Day: even the snow is heart-shaped (largely because I couldn't find the star-shaped filter, mind you.)

great capture - an instant fave!

flickr is big on encouraging people to leave comments on each other's photos. This is generally much appreciated, but there are a number of "standard comments" that turn up frequently that are a bit daft.

Anyway, a while back, Stuart went into Kelvingrove Art Galleries and applied various such comments on peel-off sticky labels to the walls next to a selection of artworks. He then photographed them and removed them (though it would no doubt have been funnier - if more enraging to the museum staff - if he'd left them).

But now the flickr group "flickr in the real world - instant fave!" have muscled in on the idea and produced wee cards along these very lines!

Stuart should clearly sue...
