On April 29th 2011, there was illegal party held in the Kelvingrove park in Glasgow. It was in celebration for William and Kate getting married. A party despite turning very wild in the evening, restored my faith in the Glaswegian gallas spirit. It was only illegal because the organisers were not granted permission from the city council. During the day all walks of life attended and had a good knees up, although by the evening, it did end up a bit of a battle field.
Below are some of the photos I captured of the party spirit.

Yesterday I went back to my photographic roots, with Architectural photography. To the same place it all began some 13+ years ago with my old film SLR, but this time with my Digital SLR. On a very similar type of winter’s day, of cold clear winter sunshine. That rich golden light, with long shadows due to the Sun’s low position in the sky during winter in Glasgow, Scotland.
I am very fortunate to be a paid freelance photographer, but it also nice to just get out and capture photos for myself, with gorgeous natural light and no pressure. I count myself lucky, that on a day off from work, I still love to go out and shoot photos, with the same passion, care and attention.
I have posted below some photographs from yesterday.

When I have a spare few minutes, see beautiful light or just pushing my creativity. I will just use my Samsung S2 camera phone and post a photo to my Instagram page
It is refreshing from time to time, in not using my professional equipment, to just explore creativity, imagination and push the abilities of a camera phone. And feedback what I have discovered back into my professional work. A photographer should never sit on his or her laurels, but always strive, fine tune and often push themselves out of their comfort zone.

*** Sorry for the sound quality*** The GoPro camera was in a protected case, therefore the sound is muffled.
Episode 2… Part of a series of small quick clips to give you ideas and to show how I go about the different aspects of Street photography. This clip shows how I capture portraits of the public, asking for permission and directing them. The video was shot on a very wide angled lens compared to my Photo camera lens, so there will be a difference in field of view.
