In short, it’s been a good first year for this photoblog, and I’ve enjoyed taking the photos and posting them here. More to come, lots more.

The last few months have been somewhat hectic, and because of a plethora of excuses, there are a few things I have not managed to get written up and posted, and getting a bit behind schedule at times. Namely, I was granted a tour of the back areas of the library back in late February and another tour of the Archives in early April, and I have a large number of interesting photos from those tours which I have yet to publish. I try to post those photos in September, just before Freshers’ Week.

Seeing as it’s a new year from now on,  I’ll make a few new year’s resolutions concerning this photoblog, as well as some things I wish to achieve next year:

  1. Write shorter captions, which will shorten and hopefully avoid publishing delays.
  2. Publish Library and Archives photos over a few Library Weeks and Archives Weeks (to be renamed).
  3. In-depth photo tour of the QMU and hopefully the GUU too.
  4. Try to explore the insides of the Main Building more.
  5. Every building on campus featured at least once, hopefully during the next academic year.
  6. Feature more lecture theatres and other departmental rooms, as several readers have asked for this.
  7. Explore the Garscube campus.
  8. More trivia and more history in the (shortened) captions.
  9. Guest posts perhaps?
  10. Any suggestions? Comments? What do you want to see?

As with all resolutions, we’ll see which ones I manage to keep. The one promise I will keep though, is that I will keep publishing photos from Glasgow University until my graduation in the summer of 2012.

Thank you to everyone who follows the blog and reads the occasionally extensive captions, everyone who comments on the photos and posts, as well as rates them, to everyone who takes part in the monthly polls, to everyone who has shared their knowledge of the aspects of the University and suggested places to photograph, and most importantly a big thank you to everyone who helps this blog grow with your input and encouragement. Thank you.

Update: Because of changes at Flickr and their new interface etcetera, the photos on this photoblog will presented in larger size. Everyone rejoice!

  1. Guest posts would be nice! Can certainly think of a certain photographic society that would have some people on its mailing list that might be interested :)

    I have not seen it even on the fresher’s week.
