A couple of photos showing the changes to the front of Queen street station
Some photos that have used the theme of filters
I have been working on and off for over a year with my daughter making this video and we finally got it finished. So here it is for you to enjoy.
I recently took some photos that where inspired by the shapes if the structures in them. It got me wondering what they would be like if you stripped back the detail to concentrate more on the shapes. So I started messing about in Photoshop and these are the results.
A while ago Allan told me he had spotted a sculpture hidden in the trees. I had a look but couldn’t see it. A few weeks ago I went back and because the trees are bare I finally could see it clearly and took some photos. Today I got round to the other side to get some photos of the sculpture from there and some detailed shots as well.
It reminds me of someone finding a Mayan Carving in the jungles.
Its actually a sculpture by Charles Anderson made in cast concrete with coloured cement. Possibly made in 1978.

The theme this time was wide format photos though not all quite fit.
Not sure if statue is quite the correct term but when Cumbernauld was originally developed there were art works scattered about it including some interesting statues. Some of these have disappeared and some have been changed but here are a couple of easy to find examples. The first one use to sit on top of a thin stone column but when they redeveloped the town centre they took that away and stood it on the wall you can see here which totally changes how you react to it.
When you get to your ‘senior’ years the perception is you tend to wallow in nostalgia for the music you grew up listening to. In that case why have most of my recent classical music purchases been of contemporary music? 😕 This piece is my latest discovery and has got me listening to a lot of other etudes by Philip glass
