This is a picture of Amelia, my friend and fellow Clarionite. She’s an editorial assistant at LOCUS, and the gentleman beside her is her boss, Charles, who is also the owner of the magazine.
The inside of the SECC, where WorldCon took place.
I really loved Glasgow’s Museum of Modern Art. This is the main floor, which I believed is called “The Earth Gallery.”
Yes, a Borders bookstore! And Starbucks! It was located directly behind the museum in this beautiful pedestrian area filled with cafes, flowers, and shops.
This is one of the above mentioned cafes. Very comfy.
The view just outside the doors of the museum. There was a wonderful art store across the street that was heaven for a person like me, who loves pens and paints and pretty paper.
George’s Square, which is in the heart of downtown Glasgow, and the location where the big red tour buses leave from. My pictures don’t do this place justice. The square was huge and utterly crowded, both with pigeons and people. It was really beautiful.
A real live barrel maker! I guess Glasgow is known for its whiskey, and this is what the stuff is stored in. I think. Anyway, it was a really cool demonstration.
An example of “typical” Glasgow architecture.
Some of the buildings at the University of Glasgow remind me of a fairy-tale – tall lacy spires, an endless maze of gardens and rambling stone and brick walls. Lovely. This picture was taken inside their museum (And yes, if you were expecting an exterior shot, mine did not turn out well. Unfortunately.).
A glimpse from the university window.
