    These are a few street shots taken in Glasgow city centre yesterday.

    The Argyll Arcade Shopping Centre - Buchanan Street entrance.

    The Buchanan Street Subway Station with the Glasgow Concert Hall in the distance.

    A bronze relief of the city centre which is on a plinth in the middle of Buchanan Street. If you look at the 'map' slightly to the right of centre there is a street running vertically which has chevrons like these \\\\\\\\\\ - that's Buchanan Street. Immediately before the chevrons are interrupted is the point where the bronze sits. Slightly above where the continued chevrons end, that's where Buchanan Street Subway is. Also, in the middle of the first part of the chevrons you can see what looks to be a taller building between two square blocks - that's the location of Argyll Arcade. I hope I haven't made that explanation too confusing!

    It is pretty cool. Shame about the usual Glasgow weather - dull, grey and overcast. I was just grateful it wasn't raining!
