University and Kelvingrove

I’m really low on photos at the moment, and as we’re currently on the wrong side of the north-west weather divide (it was 30 degrees C in London a couple of days ago, whereas our sunshine has been of the liquid variety) I don’t really want to take the camera out in the pouring rain, so I’ve dug out a few really ancient photos (well, a couple of years old anyway). This is the tower of the Glasgow University main building in the background, with the Kelvingrove Museum in the foreground.

Glasgow Style Toilets

A terrible photo (it doesn’t look too bad as a thumbnail!), but I’m including it because it made us laugh – my husband spotted it first, and wondered what “Glasgow Style Toilets” were. This is also from the Kelvingrove Museum.

Ceiling

I think I may possibly have shown another picture of this from another angle in the early days of this blog. But it’s always worth another outing – this is the arched ceiling and organ pipes from the entrance hall of the Kelvingrove Museum.

Got a problem with that?

My last photo from the Dr Who exhibition for now – I think this pretty much sums up the show really.

[I’m too good to you – first a photo of Daniel Craig at Christmas, now David Tennant!]

Exterminate!

This picture is of the Supreme Dalek; the red button alerted the scariest baddies in space to human presence. Two other Daleks seemed to come to life and swore extermination to the humans nearby (I tried taking pictures of that, but it was too dark to get a good one, and I didn’t have enough battery power in the camera to video it, unfortunately). Check out Jen’s comment on yesterday’s post to see just how scary they can be!

Yes of course, this is the Dr Who exhibition that is currently on at the Kelvingrove Museum. It’s mainly an exhibition of Christopher Ecclestone’s and David Tennant’s stints as the Time Lord (since 2005), featuring costumes and characters and exhibits on how they do the special effects and all sorts. It’s an absolute must for any fan – it’s on there until January next year. I’ll show a few more photos over the next couple of days (I took loads but will use the others as fillers when photos get short!).
