Scotland is the only place I have ever seen police telephone boxes, mainly in Edinburgh and Glasgow. The above photograph was taken on the main shopping street in the city centre of Glasgow (I forget the name of the road). I have no idea if they are still used or if they just serve as reminders of the pre-mobile communications era.
When I was last up in Glasgow for the day I was working on a personal project called reflections. As such I looked at every piece of glass to try and find something to reflect in it. This was above the entrance for an office building opposite the city’s Museum of Modern Art. I thought this particular reflection captured the contrast between old and new architecture very well.
Walking around Glasgow one afternoon the Strathclyde police helicopter decided to hover directly above me. I had just walked from the station down to the bank of the River Clyde taking photos. Looking up I could have sworn that the man was looking down at me, so I took a photograph. Probably not the best idea of the day, but they eventually flew away and left me to it.
Even when it is an overcast day it seems as if these tinted office windows reflect blue skies. I took this photo as I thought the pattern of the small windows was a little different to most offices. It really needs a window cleaner or an outline of a person stood in one of the windows to give you a sense of scale. I was going to straighten up the lines, due to the distortion of the lens it looks as though the top line is curved. This is more noticeable on wider angle photographs like the above.
