House for an Art Lover

I headed out to the House for an Art Lover last week with Morag and Stuart to examine the photon situation...

Tentacular. Or frondic. And probably not a good set of sculptures to pose wedding photos beside...

The Secret Garden

Tulip zoom





The Music Room (like "Imagine", but less dull).

Monochrome Rainbow


More Crane Hijinks...

This time, at a V.E. Day celebration:

The view towards Glasgow and the White Cart joining the Clyde:


Made in Scotland, from girders...
Very fetching pair of shoes in the staffroom

Some visitors looking at the photo-montage of people who worked in John Brown's
I was trying to get a photo where the now derelict shipyard showed through the photo of the working version, which didn't exactly work (although you can see the hills). I also became slightly obsessed with the chap looking back at the photographer and had to keep reminding myself that he wasn't actually looking at me...

Happiness is a sandpit

It was Andrew's 2nd birthday party on Monday and the most exciting present of the day (for everyone) was the giant-crab-shaped sandpit:

Which was even fun with the lid on...

Up the Clyde on a Crane

Here are some photos from the top of the Titan Crane in Clydebank (for photos from the ground see this entry). It didn't sway around like the Science Centre Tower did, which was nice, but I spent the whole time scurrying round the edges where you were actually standing on an openwork steel grid on the crane, rather than the middle where you were standing on an openwork steel grid over 150ft of nothing...

And some shots of the giant cogs and things in the wheelhouse (which had a solid floor all the way over - excellent).
