Been playing with the camera in the garden at the weekend. Here’s a few wee pics to be getting on with.

In Glasgow, at the entrance to Central Station, there’s Gordon Street Coffee, which, does great coffee.
Over the last few months, I’ve noticed some mornings, they’ve set up a wee tuk-tuk type van just off Buchanan St, and have a mobile coffee shop set up in it. It looks really cool, and I want to get a photo of it, BUT……every time I’ve got the camera, it’s not there. There’s a beer delivery to the pub it sets up outside, or I’m too early or <insert lame excuse here>, and if I don’t have the camera? Yup, there it is teasing me.
I’m going to bite the bullet and try and make sure I’ve got the camera every day next week. I WILL get a photo of this awesome little coffee truck, and I WILL post it here.
Waterfall in Linn Park, East Renfrewshire. Just outside of Glasgow.
Last year for my 50th, the plan was to do a trip to Vietnam and Cambodia. Problem was I couldn’t decide which one I wanted to spend the most time in, so Cambodia was put aside for a later date, and we went to Vietnam – Ho Chi Mihn City and Hoi An – via Hong Kong (where we did caught the ferry to Macau for a day), and a couple of nights in Dubai on the way back.
This year, the plan was to finally get to Cambodia, and add in Laos as well. Things didn’t quite work out. To go where we wanted to go, we would have had to fly via Ho Chi Minh, adding on extra flight costs that were going to take us a fair bit over budget. Instead, we’re now going to Bali – somewhere I’ve really wanted to go – with a 3 night stop in Bangkok on the way out (my wife hasn’t been there in over 20 years, and I’ve never been), and 3 nights in Dubai on the way back, to break up the journey.
I’m really looking forward to this trip. I think Bangkok will be amazing for street photography opportunities, and of course there’s the food. There’s the chance to take surf lessons in Bali (bucket list tick), and Dubai is possibly one of my favourite cities, so it’s all good.
In the meantime, here’s a photo from Hoi An in Vietnam, from my trip last year.
Still to sort out the Cape Verde photographs (I know, I know). In the meantime here’s a photo I took on the way in to work this morning of the carousel in George Square in Glasgow.
Photo I took the other morning on the way to work.
So for the last photoshoot we headed to the Kibble Palace (Glasgow botanics). The limitations of the bridge camera are starting to get more noticable, I’m just waiting for the DSLR I want to come back into stock (the camera is in, but the bundle I want is still out of stock)
Another from the photography class. The Squinty bridge (offically the Millenium Arc, but no-one in Glasgow calls it that) at night.
