September 2008 Theme Day – Your Sister City

Posted by Jackie on September 1, 2008

Today on the City Daily Photo Blogs is a theme day, which this time is “Your Sister City”. I didn’t know what cities are twinned with Glasgow, but a quick internet search found there are quite a few: Nurnberg (Germany), Rostov-on-Don (Russia), Dalian (China) and Havana (Cuba). Unfortunately I don’t know anyone in any of those cities, but fortunately for me Glasgow is also twinned with Torino (Turin to the Brits) in Italy, and we have not one but two really great Torino Daily Photo blogs. This picture was taken by Fabrizio, and is of the Mole Antonelliana, which is the home of the Museum of Cinema, and is also the symbol of Torino. I’m really proud to show one of Fabrizio’s photos on this blog – his pictures are fantastic, and if you haven’t already checked out his blog I’d really recommend it. There is also another excellent Torino Photo Blog by Livio.

(If you’re missing a Glasgow photo today, check out Fabrizio’s blog, as we did a bit of a swap!).

    Oh yes you hit the jackpot with this twin. To have another superb photographer and beautiful city as the twin was a bonus. I loke the fabulous overview of Glascow on the Sister city too.

  2. Ann said

    Beautiful photos of both your cities, Jackie and Fabrizio.

  3. Elaine said

    Yeah, I liked that rooftop scene you gave Fabrizio, and here he gave you a roof as well. Nice!

    Beautiful photo of mole Antonelliana of Torino. I have enjoyed my visit here today.

  6. Jilly said

    Lucky you to feature the beautiful Mole on your blog – and taken by no less a genius than Fabrizio! Wonderful. Happy Theme Day – great that Glasgow is twinned with Turin.

  7. Hilda said

    Woohoo! Lucky you! I love Fabrizio’s photos!

  8. […] to Jackie at Glasgow Daily Photo for highlighting Torino per immagini in her ‘Sister City Theme Day’. I had no idea that my home city was twinned with Turin. Another reason to look forward to the […]

  9. Excellent swap! Have enjoyed learning about both cities. Good week to you! Cheers!

    Thanks, Jackie. Really appreciate this as my Turin conference approaches. Had not realised that it was one of Glasgow’s twins. 🙂


  12. You are the lady whose cow I so admired yesterday. Wooo-hoo! I still like the cow. And I also like this post. It is nice to see all blue and a night sky.

    Thanks a whole bunch for stopping and commenting.

  13. Jackie said

    Ah Abraham you old charmer! 😉 I have to say nobody has ever told me they admired my cow before – not even my husband!

  14. Thank you Jackie about those beautiful compliments to my photos. I am not pretty sure to deserve them.
