Glasgow old and new
I've been working in Glasgow all week, but with very long working days there's been no time to get out and explore the city. The most I can show you is the view from my hotel bedroom. Glasgow is much larger than Edinburgh and the cityscape always says 'big city' to me. I feel as if I'm visiting from a village in the country by comparison.
This is a city in movement, summed up for me by my 6th floor view: sadly derelict Victorian sandstone building, complete with blurred carvings, chimney pots and tiny attic casements, beside a gap left by a demolition, and then the modern high rises beyond.
And more of the same in the other direction. I hope the building in the first picture, with its hobbit-like cupolas and dormers, will be restored, but it did look as if it was being left to fall into decay. Pity. I felt like starting a charity for abandoned buildings, it tugged at my heart-strings so much.
