Photography: Jim's Glasgow West End Photo Diary: April 2006

Here are some of the photographs I have taken while out and about in the West End of Glasgow - I hope you find them interesting. Click on the images to view larger versions. You are free to download and use for non-commercial purposes any of my photographs as long as you put a link to this site and give me credit for the photograph (Jim Byrne)

Some months the images are a mixture of photographs of the West End, photographs of Glasgow and photographs of Scotland.

Here's me in my car looking forward and then to the left (ehh...). Don't worry, the car was parked when I took these photos.

Photo: Tennents Bar Byres Road.

I'm going through a phase of waking up very early at the moment - not out of choice. It's too damn early to be up and about. On the up-side I can go out for a walk and take a few photos. This morning - after waiting a couple of hours - I went down to Tinderbox for a coffee and to read the Sunday papers. Weekend morning coffee break is a favourite pastime of mine.

If a tenement can be lonely - then this tenement must be the one.
