Albania a few months back

Deep in the forest in Albania, close to monuments of bygone ages, there lay two peoples sleeping and their dog watching over them keeping guard.  All close to a beautiful geyser. A strange and sometimes hostile country that still has lots of charm.

Glasgow on the launch of the Commonwealth Games

Glasgow proudly hosts the Commonwealth Games and temperature is just perfect for it. It’s rare that you’ll see so many happy faces but on this day there were so many I couldn’t capture enough of them.  Better than taking generic photos of athletes I thought it made sense to show how vibrant and happy the city was in  a few photos

Market traders, Glasgow artists, hipster preachers and gentle onlookers

The Barras Market in Glasgow.

This man used to be a trader who was at Paddy’s market for many decades.

He believes that the fate of The Barras will be the same as that of Paddy’s Market.

A polite and intelligent man.

This rotting apple reminded me of Dali’s Un Chien Andalou. The ants were all over the thing until I got the chance to take a photo and then typically they all fled and left and only a few remained.
