Slightly to the left of yesterday’s picture, this one shows the view looking towards the Glasgow Tower, and just to its right the Science Centre and IMAX Cinema. To the right of that you might also be able to make out the BBC studios at Pacific Quay.

Apologies for the late posting of a photo, did anyone else with a wordpress blog have problems with scheduling photos yesterday? (it seems to be OK today but was driving me nuts yesterday). This is an old picture, from last autumn, showing L-R the BBC studios on Pacific Quay, the IMAX Cinema, Science Centre and Glasgow Tower.

Musical fish

This is one of the exhibits in the Science Centre. If I recall correctly, whenever the fish swim through a beam they activate a musical note. Maybe I didn’t hang around long enough, but I’m not sure it was working when I was there.

This is the new(ish) BBC Scotland building, on Pacific Quay. In the distance you can see the Finnieston Crane and the Squinty Bridge, and that’s the BBC’s next door neighbour the Science Centre, IMAX cinema and Glasgow Tower reflected in its windows.

Sorry for the late posting today – the internet was not playing at all last night so I had to wait till this morning (same for Sibiu DP). Anyway, better late than never 🙂

This is a small wind turbine outside the Science Centre.

University and sky

Here’s another one taken from my trip to the Science Centre in October (hence the trees still having some leaves!). This is the view over the Clyde from the inside of the Centre, towards Glasgow University and the Pentland Hills beyond. I really love the light and the sky in this picture.

Another older picture this one, here’s another one of the Science Centre and Tower, and also showing the new(ish – couple of years old) BBC Scotland studios. I’m guessing it will be a hive of activity there today due to Red Nose Day 2009.

Contraption

This is by the Science Centre, and is supposed to work by someone operating a pump to force water round the system. Unfortunately, after my friend’s son pretty much exhausted himself getting nowhere fast, we discovered a leak which meant that all his efforts were in vain.
