Sunny Glasgow

Yesterday was unusually sunny in Glasgow. At one point it was only showing as 11C, but it felt much hotter. That’s what happens when you get used to it being cold and overcast all the time.

I’ve been wanting to make more use of my Hasselblad lately, so went to the West End to meet up with Karlyn and take some medium format pictures. I had the Leica M with me as well, so cracked that out for a couple. The film ones will come later…

There were cherry blossom trees out, which was a nice surprise. I didn’t even realise that there were any in Glasgow. Sounds dumb, but I only really worked out what they were after looking at pictures of Japan.

There was a girl taking pictures of herself and a giant stuffed panda using a selfie stick in front of the cherry blossoms, which was pretty amusing.

I wandered about the park for a bit after, which was unsurprisingly busy.

Glasgow becomes a totally different place in the sun. There’s a palpable change you can feel in the atmosphere, and it’s wonderful.

Some people take it pretty seriously.

Hopefully they were just enjoying the sun, and not suffering some sort of difficulties.

I’m looking forward to it being like this more often. Hopefully we get a decent stretch… That’s not too much to ask for, right?
