A few more holiday snaps.
Funchal had some old Art Deco style buildings and signs.
Here are some photographs from our recent winter break in Madiera. The weather was sunny and warm, and I took loads and loads of photographs - too many really.
In the photo above you can see a local musician relaxing in Monte village square - it has to be said - the pace of life was not hectic.

I took 3 year old Holly round to the Kelvingrove Park a couple of days ago, and saw this friendly and beautiful Swan in the pond. I soon became frozen and eager to get back home, as the weather was absolutely perishing - but Holly was running around with other kids happily playing on the slides and swings - so I had to stay for the fun.
Also saw some nice ducks in the pond.
I find myself looking in the puddles more these days, as there can be something quite magical and other worldly in what they reflect. This tree for example looks pretty darn good.
This lane is off to the left, and near the bottom, if you are coming down Glasgow Street. The photograph above that is the building at the bottom of Glasgow Street.
Here is what Byres Road looks like if you look in your wing mirror while sitting in a car outside Safeways waiting to pick up Pat with the shopping.

Here is this months 'mystery photograph'; where in the West End can you find these three distinctive windows? Add your answer as a comment at the bottom of the page. It's just a bit of fun - sorry there are no prizes - just the smug satisfaction of getting it right.
Mystery photograph update: As you can see from the comment below, Tom Wilson is kindly offerring a prize of a '?20 gift voucher for Di'Maggios for the first correct entry that can also complete a wee tiebreaker'. Thanks Tom, that is very good of you.If you don't mind I'll alter that to 'all correct entries are asked the tiebreaker and the first person to reply with the answer gets the prize? Sound ok?
Don't delay, enter the competition today - particularly if you are hungry. :-)
I have a selection of my photographs for sale in the Gallery Shop.
