Glasgow’s Clydeside.

A quick short post from here in grey Scotland this morning. Monday morning and there’s plenty to be done, as ever.

Back in 1993 as a young freelance photographer I shot this Glasgow image, of the shipbuilding on the River Clyde, the Paddle Steamer Waverley and a view of the city. I’ve always been happy with the photograph, to me it captures the city, and the heritage of the Clyde. A couple of weeks ago the Editorial Photographers UK website asked me for an image and a story to use on their Showcase page, and as I had just returned to work here in Glasgow again after 9 years in Japan, I thought it apt to dig this shot out of the archive. If you click over to the EPUK website you can enjoy the backstory to how I shot this photograph of shipbuilding, and PS Waverley, on the River Clyde. A short read for your morning coffee break.
