Photo: Pat, Anne, Danny, at the Scottish Open.

We went to see the Scottish Open Golf Championship last weekend, up at Loch Lomond. It was a good day out; we didn't see an awful lot of golf, but enjoyed ourselves none-the-less. In the photo above you can see Pat, Pat's brother Danny and his wife Anne.

Of those players we did watch, I was particulary impressed by Edwardo Romero; he made the game look extremely easy.

Photo: Scottish Open Hospitality area.

There is no need to tire yourself out, by walking around the course, when you can get everything you need by staying in the hospitality area. :-)

Photo: Golfer Lee Westwood.

I spotted World class golfer Lee Westwood signing autographs after his round.

Photo: Hunterian Gallery - new sign.

Back in the West End, I noticed that the Hunterian has tarted up the sign just at the entrance to the Gallery; kind of sculputural in a modern concrete kind of way.

Photo: Scooter inside Tinderbox.

Looking out from within Tinderbox, the coffee shop on Byres Road.

Photo: Seats in Glasgow University Gardens.

I like these 'arty looking' seats that are situated on the grassy area next to the Glasgow University Reading Room.

Photo: West End Gatepost.

Here is your mystery photograph for this month; where can you find these distinctive gateposts? It is just a bit of fun - no prizes I'm sorry to say. Add your answer as a comment at the bottom of the page.

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


God bless any child in this world and beyond

July Mystery Photograph I see you didn't say if "Westender" was correct in thinking that this was Florentine House. I'm inclined to agree. Please put us out of our misery! With thanks.

I believe this is the gateway into what was in my day the Dept of Theatre, Film & TV Studies at the university - beside the Hub and across the road from the entrance to the uni library. No idea what dept's in there now, but isn't the building called Florentine House? I think I may be a bit late with this entry!
