Confused

So, with the final post on this blog for the time being, I wanted to find something which reflected the quirkiness of Glasgow as I think it’s the quirkiness that I really like about the city and hope I’ve managed to portray here over the last couple of years. This comes from the stairway at the Lighthouse, until last September Glasgow’s Centre for Architecture and Design. Sadly the Lighthouse had to close due to financial troubles, which I’m really sad about as it was one of my favourite museums in the city. I hope a way is found to resurrect it somehow.

Thanks to everyone who has been kind enough to leave comments here since I started this blog – although lately it’s been a bit more of an effort, for the most part it has been an absolute delight to showcase this great city. I’ve learnt lots – about photography, about other cities in the world (through the City Daily Photo Blog initiative of which this blog is a part), and about Glasgow. So that’s cool 🙂 Thanks to you all.

I’ve shown a picture of the blue escalators at the Lighthouse (the centre for design and architecture) before. This is from the landing right at the top of the building, looking right down to the ground floor. Not a view for the faint-hearted!

Not the sharpest photo I’ve ever taken, but it made me smile – these are the signs for the toilets in the Lighthouse, Glasgow’s Centre of Architecture and Design.
