I popped in to Oran Mor last weekend and took a few photographs on the first floor restaurant/music venue.

This is a nice design touch; the salt and pepper pots sit on a mirror, which is handy if you want to examine Alasdair Gray's spectacular mural on the ceiling.

I didn't have a lens on my camera that was suitable for taking photographs of the ceiling - but this gives you an idea of the colour and detail.

I have a selection of my photographs for sale in the Gallery Shop.


Thanks - I appreciate your nice comments. I've never done album artwork - but would be keen if anyone offered me the work. :-) All the best, Jim

Just happened to come across this page after searching the web for info on a west end street. must say that i think your compositions are brilliant and you have a great eye. There are many photographers around who dont do their subject justice, you are not one of them, you are in a class of your own... Think its called talent. have you ever done album artwork?

Hi Am exile from West End - living in London. Was very keen to see interior of Oran Mor - saw exterior on my last visit. Quite funny to me as I used to go to Brownies in the basement of that church, and Alasdair Gray is old family friend, so viewing of his murals is a must for me when Oran Mor opens - is it open? Anyway, love your sight.

Nice returning to Glasgow for a holiday in a few weeks, Oran Mor will be on my list of places to visit. Bermuda is nice, but I sure as hell miss the West-End.
