Wow, here I go again with another pic from Glasgow. Maybe I will just do Glasgow shots all week. You cool with that? Ok, great thanks. :-) I do love me some Scotland!
I find myself drawn to this place whenever I go to Glasgow. This is the Gallery of Modern Art and it sits in Royal Exchange Square, right in the city center. It is such a beautiful structure to my eyes - I love those classic architectural elements. Funny that it's a gallery of modern art, yet housed in a classical architecture structure, huh?
Anyways, I had just gotten back into town from a day trip up to Edinburgh (more on that later - lots of shots from there still to process!) and after leaving the train station, I wandered in this direction. It was around sunset and although the rain kept any awesome sunset colors in check, I had a feeling blue hour would be nice. You ever get that feeling?
So I set up and shot until the rain started falling on me. At that point I packed up and started walking back to my hotel, only to get almost all the way there when the rain stopped again. I stood on the street for a couple of minutes, and since no more rain was falling, I turned around and went back here to shoot some more. Worked out pretty good, since that's when I got this shot!
