Glasgow Daily Photo

A photo a day from Scotland’s biggest city.

Going Underground

Posted by Jackie on October 28, 2008

Today’s picture is a rather bizarre sculpture-ish sort of thing I guess, it’s not a common structural thing so I presume it’s art but I don’t know who designed it or anything. It’s in the ticket hall of the tube (underground train) station at St Enoch.

Yesterday I met up with some friends from down south who are holidaying in Scotland and we had a brilliant time at one of Glasgow’s best sights. I’ve featured it on this blog before, but the weather was so good that I got tons of pictures I’m really pleased with. I’ll probably show some of them next week and keep the others for random other days. I think they’ll keep me going for a while, anyway 🙂

    Jackie, you don’t recognize it as public art because it has no graffiti, posters or pigeon poop on it. It’s art alright. I like it.

    I always get a smile when I think of Glasgow’s subway going around and around in a circle. I’m very sure the fact that the system hasn’t been expanded since 1896 has nothing to with rumours that the Scots are ‘careful’ with a money.

    Art, to be sure. OR, if they are structural, run like the wind and don’t look back! hahaha

    A very cool find and great capture!

    It is bizarre but I like it! They fit quite well, I think.

    Wow! It’s my first time here at Glasgow Daily and I love it! Just look at this photo! First time it flashed into my eyes, I definitely was amazed! Love it!

    I’ve known Glasgow not because it was the Capital of Scotland(Geography enthusiast I am) but also because of the song Super Trouper by ABBA. I just love that song I think you know that?

    God BLess you and Mabuhay from the Philippines! Hope you visit Cavite Daily Photo too if ever you have spare time!

    Thank you – I love that its often the bizarre things I take pictures of that get most comments 🙂

    Margaret, I agree with you. An Honest Man is the fount of all knowledge! (I’m so glad he’s a regular visitor here, I learn so much!)

  11. Looks like something out of Star Trek or Star Wars. Thank God for An Honest Man, otherwise, we’d all be scratching our heads.
