Lion Sculpture outside Glasgow City Chambers

I have never been inside the City Chambers in Glasgow, but I do remember this lion and his twin sitting at the main entrance of this large Victorian building. It is home to Glasgow City Council and built between 1882 and 1888 by the architect William Young. The above photograph was taken at night and is lit by the lights on the building (not flash). I often find that with a strong, heavy tripod and the correct settings, statues seem to look better at night with artificial lighting.
