Glasgow Waterfront

With a few hours to kill in Glasgow, I managed to avoid the rain and snow that were affecting the rest of the country.

It was a cloudy but pleasant evening to walk along the waterfront from Pacific Quay to the city centre.

Clyde Auditorium, aka The Armadillo.
The squigly bridge, a recent pedestrian footpath across the river
Glasgow Bridge, at the bottom of Jamaica street, is a listed building
The stonework on South Portland Street Suspension Bridge dates from 1853, and is the oldest remaining Clyde bridge in Glasgow

Night time pictures

Following on the night theme from my last post, I've added a couple of pictures I took this evening in Greenock and Port Glasgow.

I've been promising myself that I would photograph Port Glasgow's Endeavour statue situated at the Fore Street entrance to Port Glasgow. Here is my first picture, taken in the gaps between cars coming in and out of the town.

At the junction of West Blackhall Street and Grey Place in Greenock, a wood elf stands welcoming cruise ship passengers into the town. Once inside the Oak Mall, she now stands on a plinth for all to see approaching the town centre from the west.

Beacon Arts Centre

Greenock Arts Guild's new home is finally completed and opens it's doors for the public to see inside tomorrow.

It's good to see the Customhouse Quay with construction finished and I have to admit that the front of the building looks far superior to the rear, which is the view that is presented to passers-by on the main road.
