Loch Lomond, one still morning last year

St Vincent Street

2912039412_a72f3b3033_z.jpg

LG they are *uckin fantastic :) The Loch Lomond one captures exactly the light that I've been dronin on about,here and elsewhere :lol: that I love about Loch Lomond (and West of Scotland) but don't like living in all year round.

AND the St Vincent one with the (morning?) sun on the red sandstone - just makes me homesick.

Do you have any of Loch Lomond in the gloamin?

You're right Iona, morning it is.

The September light has been fantastic this year-- early and late doors-- because the skies have been so clear. This is pretty much the view I see every day making my way into w*rk in Merchant City and it's been warm enough to sit out and have a quick coffee on the way.

Ain't life grand sometimes? :lol:

Some great buildings in that street. The best idea is to look up. Super photos, LG.

I looked around in awe, Nothing quite like it in Brissie at that time! Mind you I did prefer the warmth in Brisbane

The Christian Institute in Bothwell Street National Mutual? across the roadfrom it. Church at top of the hill. Blysthwood square where office lassies used to get sun tanned on hot summer lunch times (well at least one day every 5 years) Used to work in No 26 Blyswood square lovely old building with a portico.

Finally worked in Park Circus PLace in one of Charles Wilsons Vicrorian masterpieces which luckily had not been "modernised"

I dont think you weejies really appreciate the fantastic architecture of your city.

Mind you it was effin cold and wet

OOH! I think we do, you know :P

There are some fantastic Victorian buildings in Syd and Mel that remind me so much of Glasgow architecture. Maybe that's one of the reasons both cities feel like home.

Only warmer and drier. :lol:
