Last June, I shot a roll of film that I’d got free with a second hand camera. When I got back the scans I found out that the roll had already been used by the guy who gave me it and so I had double exposed it. By chance, both of us had taken a photo of a motorway landscape and this was made. His photo is from the inside of the car looking at countryside and my shot is of an urban motorway, which is best seen on the left hand side.
I took this when my friends and I were just leaving a party in the Southside of Glasgow.
I took this photograph three summers ago while I was lying on my back on the grass in the botanic gardens in Glasgow looking at a blue sky (rare as fuck in Glasgow). This was my new view when my girlfriend stood over me.
I took this when I was on a walk with my Dad around the back roads near our house. I think the unusual colours are due to the film being really expired.
This photograph is what the time to leave a party looks like. Soon to be printed on t-shirts by The Quiet Life.
I took this photograph of Cowcaddens subway station one night when I was heading to the old Art School student union.
I'm sure this has been done a thousand fuckin' times but here is my mirror reflection photograph from the Camera Obscura in Edinburgh.
I remember that this rainbow appeared and disappeared within 5 minutes or so. To me, getting this shot just feels like a nice thing to have happened.
I noticed one day in summer that at about 8:30pm the sun would line up perfectly with this very long, straight road (Great Western Rd) as it was setting. It looked and felt like all the sunlight that was left in the day was being funneled down this one road. I went back the next evening with my XA and stood in the middle of the road and took this.
The West End of Glasgow was covered in a layer of icy snow for a few days in December 2010. I took this shot of Kelvingrove skatepark on an Olympus Trip 35 with the second roll of film I ever used.
I got out of a lecture one day in March 2011 and it was snowing.
I took this while I was sitting on a bed with a group of mates at a party. The photograph messes with my head a little because I never expected the lens on my Olympus Mju II to actually autofocus on the puff of smoke. I don't know who exhaled it (it wasn't me) but the smoke was just lingering there, like long enough for me to take my camera, turn off flash, and take a picture.
A good thing about Glasgow is that there are places you can go to for a dance after 3am. This was taken in one of them.
Early morning urban adventures.
