In Glasgow, the City Halls contain a number of concert venues rather than the seat of municipal government – that’s the City Chambers. The grand hall, above, opened in 1841 and was extensively renovated about 15 years ago. The beautiful chandeliers supply roof-light, there’s some spotlight, and also a bit of projected-light on the back wall showing the orchestra’s name. On this occasion, we were awaiting the delight of a performance of Mozart’s Requiem. Linked to Becky’s January Squares challenge – words ending in light.
A shot from Campbeltown in November 2018. We arrived as the day faded to twilight and the buildings, including this clock-tower, were illuminated by spotlights. Linked to Becky’s current square challenge #JanuaryLight, but I confess I originally took this for her December 2018 challenge, #TimesSquare, which I failed to enter. Just shows nothing is ever wasted!

Not the usual meaning of tealight! An interesting use of tea-pots at the café at Applecross House. Linked to Becky’s January Squares challenge: words ending in light.

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?

Another guiding-light today – not a lighthouse, but a lightship. North Carr is the last remaining Scottish lightship and has been moored in Dundee since 2007. Linked to Becky’s square photography challenge, January Light, words ending in light.
