December 2010: Dusk, Dark and Dawn


Welcome to my wee photoblog on Glasgow, where we feature the  joys and unjoys of walking and cycling through a fascinating, beautiful and often badly run city. For the blog's origin and an alphabetical list of posts  see the 'Introduction' post  -

This is a wee collection of pics of half lit or dark Glasgow in December 2010

Hillhead, Glasgow Uni on right; fingers of late light
As observed in earlier posts,  Glasgow has some fine light shows in the evening; this is the view down Gt Western Rd at Kelvinbridge during this cold month



Hope St: late afternoon

A deserted Alexandra Parade in the crepuscular light; more snow coming

This dental surgery in Alexandra Parade is seeking to re-gather NHS patients - not much market for private dental care in Glasgow's east end in December 2010 

Another sad cold dog outside Alexandra Parade Co-op (a shop not overstocked with fruit)
The Pavilion Theatre
Argyle St. See

There have been ferries round about here since the days locals spoke Gaelic and called Glasgow 'Glaschu', the 'Dear Green Place - since at least the 14th century. Boats of all sorts go past here: pleasure boats, sewage boats, and 1800 years ago you could have sat here and watched Roman patrol boats and trading vessels from all over go by.
