From Partick Bridge at Night
Digging deep into the magical box of photos, I came across the above photo, taken about this time last year. I’ve said this before, but Partick Bridge offers one of the best postcard worthy views of the University of Glasgow. There’s also a bus stop right next to the bridge where the 747 AirLink bus stops on its way from Glasgow Airport, so if you’re picking friends up by bus from the airport and live in the vicinity of the University, I suggest getting off at this bus stop and offering your visitors a stunning view of the University from the very start.
Every time I come across one of my attempts at taking long exposure photos by a road I’m reminded of the fact that I really need to attempt this more often. One evening I’ve gotta make my way to one of the bridges on to of the M8 to get some (hopefully) nice long exposure shots of cars passing by. If you’re ever trying the same, I suggest trying to catch a passing emergency vehicle. The light effect of the flashing blue lights on top of the emergency vehicles creates an interesting effect. Here’s one I made earlier (opens oven, whips out previously prepared dish photo).
