Glasgow Necropolis & Car Parks with A.

Been slacking way too much on the blog front so getting right back into it with a few photos of A.

A-5

I hadn’t seen A since she came over to shoot all the valentine’s stuff a couple months ago.

I’m broke since getting back from the states, so I’m limited to getting around by foot which probably is only going to do good things for me since I really need to be more active right now. I walked into the centre to meet her, and we headed to the necropolis.

I’m terrible at planning ahead, so there was no real aim to any of these photos other than to have a walk and hang out and drink tea. Which doesn’t exactly make for a bad day, let’s be honest.

There was a mobile hut in the necropolis, we had no idea what it was. But once we’d finidhed the lap of the cemetery, it had been picked up and moved. And the constrast in the grass needed to be used somehow. It was too boggy to lay in, but we got these which are pretty rad.

A looks like she should be fronting a 90’s grunge band.

A-12

Between tea stops, we headed to the lighthouse which I realised was going to be closed so we went up the car park opposite instead.

A-15

Car parks are one of my favourite places to hang out, and it doesn’t matter where they are – getting onto the roof always feels satisfying. I blame the movies.

It looks colder than it was. The evenings are getting light again, I’m looking forward to summer and being able to kick about longer with usable light.

We headed inside to take some portraits using the overhead lighting before heading for another brew.

I’ve published a ton more of these photos on my private blog. You can access that by subscribing through my online store.

Catty Friday.

I didn’t feel like I was going to go out, but I also hadn’t seen Emily in a little while either. Emily was going out with her pals and I didn’t want to be tagging along on me tod so I fired Bryan a message to see if he was free. He was.

There’s definitely something to be said for just accepting invitations out and rolling with the night. Sometimes the chaos is needed, and that’s exactly how Friday ended up. I had a bloody good time with good people.

I took my camera out and barely used it, so here’s a bunch of photos I probably didn’t take. Who knows? I’m just going to blame Emily & Bryan anyway and it’s my blog so I can write what I want.

Adventures in 35mm

I’ve not really been taking my digital camera out with me as often as usual. Maybe it’s because I’ve been doing a lot more shoots, so it’s feeling somewhat of a chore now – I don’t know.  Though I have been carrying around a wee Halina point and shoot 35mm camera almost daily, and snapping whatever I find interesting.

I’ve got a ton of old 35mm waiting to be processed, and I got a couple of those rolls developed too so a couple frames of those have made their way below, but most photos from the past couple weeks.

Because of this, I’ve created a new instagram primarily for my 35mm photos. You can follow that here. I am feeling enthused for a change so will probably enjoy using this instagram for around another week before I start to hate on it. So get it while it’s hot.

Right, here’s a selection of photos I dig for whatever reason, along with a couple of fuck ups because that’s the beauty of film, right?

A Pro-Lifer in Glasgow’s West End

I finished my chips and left the cafe, and in a shop doorway two doors down was a woman in tears. I asked her what was up and she said a man had just approached her to tell her that abortion is wrong, before moving on. She told me he left her questioning if she was actually a bad person.

He was away down the road, talking to someone else. I asked him what he thought he was playing at, and he instantly got on the defence with “it’s just my opinion!”. I told him I thought his opinion was bullshit, and he needed to mind his own business if he can’t begin to understand the complexities that come with women reaching decisions like that. He said he was sorry, but it didn’t feel sincere. It felt like someone backing down, and not because he made some woman cry, but because he didn’t expect a man of my size to object to his bullshit and call him out on it.

Pancake Day!

Friends have asked me to create a food vlog before for some of the vegan food I cook. I was briefly involved with a food blog at one point, but basically, what I am getting at is – I still haven’t. I probably won’t. But, the other day I did film JAZZebell_ making vegan pancakes for Pancake Day.

Pancakes-3

Obviously she did it naked, and got very weird during the process so it’s not exactly a great ‘how to’ video, but it is definitely worth a watch if you want to see her deepthroat a banana, spank herself with a spatula, and get heavy involved with strawberries and cream.

Introducing: A.

A week before the Valentine’s shoot, A. came over to mine for our first shoot together. It was also our first time meeting in person, too. We followed each other on Instagram for a while and then arranged for her to come over to Glasgow for some balcony photos. I met her in town. I think there was a loose plan to go out for a walk, but the weather wasn’t great and so we just shot in the flat instead and I cooked some food.
