I was fortunate enough to be asked to shoot a morning gathering in Glasgow's Gallery of Modern Art but had a half hour in the afternoon to look around before the bus left to take me back to Moffat. There are some great and thought provoking works on display but it's the amalgam of old and new architecture c/w with soft and sympathetic lighting that adds to the gallery's attraction.
SSE asked me to capture some photos from Stranraer's inaugural 'Oyster Festival' and it was a fabulous event. The festival organisers, the people of Stranraer, and their funders and supporters should all be proud of what they made happen.
A rural evening scene from near to Annan in SW Scotland on Thursday, juxtaposing industry and agriculture. The grazing animals brought to my mind African savanna, and the part decommissioned Chapelcross nuclear power station, Chernobyl. Much of the outer infrastructure surrounding the fast breeder nuclear reactors at Chapelcross remains after the toppling of four large concrete cooling towers about ten years ago. The hills to the left are down in the English Lake District, and the masts on the horizon in the Solway Firth.
