I went along to the West End Festival parade the other weekend in the hope of getting some good pictures. Unfortunately it's got a lot more popular since the last time I went along and the weather was so horrifically good that the entire city seemed to have decamped to Byres Road. As a result of this (and not being 9 feet tall) the photos of the parade itself are limited to this octopus
and a dragon.
(It was a nice dragon though).
By the time it had gone (mostly invisibly) past me I was beginning to feel a bit like this
so headed off to the relative calm and balloons of Vinicombe Street. Morag was also there though and had had the foresight and organisation to find a better spot so was able to take some much more interesting shots.
