So, for something slightly different, I thought I’d pop up a little post about the Queen Mary 2 departing Greenock.

This was taken just a few nights ago, and to make things a little bit more challenging, I was actually on the steam paddle ship, “Waverley” watching the QM2 depart.

It was freezing, I was not exactly dressed for how cold it actually turned out to be, and the whole night took an absolute age to get to this point, but it was all worth it in the end.

Someone once said that the best thing you can carry in your camera bag is patience, and on this occasion that was very true!

Thankfully, I spent the remainder of the journey back to Glasgow in the engine room – which is the warmest place on the ship!

If you’ve never been on the Waverley, then put it on your bucket list .. fantastic experience Smile

Ohhh, it’s a blog post I hear you shout! Surprised smile

I know, I’ve been more of a “Facebook blogger” for 2013, but I’m going to try and get back to proper blogging, I promise!

So, starting off with the recent wedding of Brianna and Gordon, who had their fantastic ceremony at Glasgow University, and then, it was off to ARTA, a rather unique Mediterranean themed bar situated in the merchant city. Nice!  

It was a very typically Glaswegian wet, windy, and wild start to the day, so the boys quite rightly took shelter inside..

Pumpkins played a starring role during the day, which was appropriate given the time of the event Winking smileJames Solly Photography - Glasgow-4

So, as the night went on, it started to get harder, and harder to tell who was .. err who? Just kidding

A few quiet minutes alone with each other, well okay, so I was there as well, but who’s counting?
