Glasgow West End: Jim's photography diary June 2007

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.

Glasgow West End Festival parade day

The West End festival parade day proved to be a big success - with every nook and cranny down Byres road stuffed with good tempered festival goers enjoying the parade, the stalls and the music.

This year I left the job of taking photos of the parade itself to the professionals - that fit band of running photographers who know how to take a photograph while walking backwards at a brisk pace. It was a big parade and a big crowd came out to see it.

The best views are from the Tenement windows overlooking Byres Road.

Hi Jim as usual brilliant & interesting photos. Wee tip now that you have the bike and you have moved to anniesland check out the canal which take you to in the direction of Clydebank / Bowling / Loch Lomond or in the other direction which can take you in the direction of (stop of at Lock 27 first) Kirkintillock / falkirk etc. Guarantee you plenty of photo oppurtunities ! Especially if you have boats on the canal.
