George Square, Glasgow.


Since I walked across this Square at least twice a day for seven years, I thought I might post a picture. The latter is a stitch, albeit not a very good one. I'm still learning. Long may that continue. As always, clicking upon the graphic will enable a larger view.

Very cool, but explain to me what a stitch is. Is it piecing together multiple photos?

Teri, thank you. I have lots to post.

SkylersDad; Yes, that's what I mean by that term. Probably a more correct description would be a panoramic photo montage. My new cheap camera has this mode built in, but this effort was hand held, and I rotated the camera clockwise which led to the valley effect. I really should use a Triffid.

Cat, I have never been stalked before...

Dick, gregarious is your middle name...

Cheer, the guy atop the pillar is Sir Walter Scott, also here is a picture of him wearing a Christmas bowtie made by Big Clive, a lighting Engineer. Photo courtesy of Clive Mitchell.

Cheer, no disrespect is intent. At Christmas the Square is festooned with lights, and I'm sure Sir Walter is more than happy to join in the fun and wear a flashing bowtie to mark the occasion. It also scares the seagulls away.

Cat, unfortunately no, but thank you for wanting to stalk me.
