Photo: Glasgow Harbour construction scene.

There is lots of work going on down at the Glasgow Harbour construction site - new buildings going up in the blink of an eye. I spotted this little mechanical shovel scene, just off South Street - looked kind of arty to me - construction chic.

Photo: Saint Simon Chapel.

Saint Simon's Chapel is now surrounded by new housing - as a building - it looks a bit cowed by the changes.

Photo: Michael Dale launches Festival programme.

Last Thursday I went to the Launch of the 2004 West End Festival - which was in 'The Loft' in Ashton Lane. In the photograph above you can see Festival Director Michael Dale (on the right) with local developer Colin Beattie. Colin is responsible for resurecting the old church at the top of Byres Road - soon to be open as Oranmor - an Arts venue, restaurant and bar.

Local artist Lynne Scobbie had a exhibition of her paintings within the Botanic gardens information centre. Apart from being a talented artist and running painting classes for Westenders, Lynne organises the Paintings on Railings event which runs throughout the summer months - located on Queen Margaret Drive.
