Last Saturday saw four people undertake a madcap 550 mile round trip to Glasgow so that one of them (hi Mark!) could go to a football match.

Mark’s wife (and my regular ‘Photography Friday’ partner in crime, Rachel), my wife, Joy, and myself had a few hours to explore the city (and have a wee drink or two) but we were all keen to see as much of the city’s Mural Trail as possible.

The above image is of the first mural we found… Painted by Australian artist ‘Smug’ (Sam Bates) in 2016 it depicts St Mungo, Glasgow’s patron saint.

Btw, Rachel’s image of the mural is currently gracing the BBC’s ‘Your pictures of Scotland‘ page!

Square Saturday… Funk

I’m obviously still having problems with loading film into my charity shop find Diana+… I’m also getting too close to my subject matter as most of my shots are far too tightly framed, a problem exacerbated by my dodgy film loading technique.

This shot is OK though, something I spotted during a wander around Cosne-sur-Loire in the Nièvre department in central France.
