Trip into Glasgow

 View of Glasgow looking north from Queen's Park

This morning I was in the Shawlands area of south Glasgow for shopping and took the opportunity of an excellent burst of low angle sun to capture images of Glasgow city looking north.Unfortunately, the range of hills-the Campsie Fells- which sit behind the city in the distance were not visible, a deficiency compensated by crystal clear visibility in the middle distance.

Here is a video clip which, like the still image, was taken from the vantage point of a hill within Queen's Park.

On my walk around Queen's Park I encountered the mastiff shown below. Despite it's size the animal is only 15 months old and still growing. The breed is an Italian Cane Corso. This is usually kept as a companion or guard dog. It may also be used to protect livestock and in the past was used for hunting game.Seemingly a passive and friendly dog.,
