January Light: Provosts’ lamps

lamplight trio of squares today. The residence of the Provost (Mayor), or Lord Provost, used to be denoted by a special decorative streetlight in Scottish towns and cities. Many still exist. The daylight example above is from Lanark, the twilight shot is from Broughty Ferry near Dundee, and the lamp taken in darkness is from Glasgow.

January Light: Nick Cave

Spotlight on Nick Cave – I have lost count of the number of his concerts I have attended, this being the last one, at Glasgow’s SSE Hydro in September 2017. It’s not great quality, taken on a phone in the dark, but I love it. It’s the best photo either of us has ever managed at a gig (so it’s probably John’s) and it really captures the moment. We both got to touch him as he crowd-surfed that evening, and I was almost trampled underfoot at the end when a few fans were allowed onto the stage. Happy days! He’s coming to Glasgow again in May, and guess who has tickets?

January Light: lighthouse

Becky’s January Squares challenge is words ending in light, so you might think lighthouse doesn’t qualify. I was going to include a lighthouse anyway – I like them! – under the category of a special kind of lamplight, then Kaz came up with the concept of guiding-light. Perfect! This guidinglight is on the Firth of Clyde at Port Glasgow. Tomorrow’s post is a variation on the theme.

January Light: disco

Like my Advent Calendar last week, this window display is illuminated by backlight – and it’s also disco-light. It was part of Window Wanderland in Strathbungo last February – I’m looking forward to this year’s event for more inventive decorations.
