Experiencing monochromatic conditions through the largest city in Scotland. The day played the stereotypical weather at best, changing between rain, drizzle, and freezing wind. Flop? False!
The overcast sky blended with the hues of concrete and stone structures, creating a charming atmosphere. Fun:

Old and new, curved and straight, moist landscapes fused filth, flowers.

Glasgow consists plenty of narrow streets lined with interesting buildings. This then makes for a great show when looking up. Fancy!
Some of these are my fav pics from the day. following frames:

I covered some distance by walking, as usual. However, there was another way I wanted to give a go: the local subway. Glasgow has the third-oldest underground metro system in the world, after London and Budapest. Moreover, the tunnel diameter is only 11 feet / 3.35m, which means that the rolling stock is quite tiny. Point of interest, for a fact.
The trains are similar to those in operation on London's deep level lines, but smaller. Tall people can't stand straight in it. When the coaches are empty, they feel very cozy, as they are personally-sized. And when they get full, well, that's another experience. People wall-to-wall, some discussing rugby, some casually snorting powder from a mastercard, pretty much every guy sporting the same undercut hairstyle, pretty much every girl with a thick make-up, all having a notoriously strong accent. The f-words flew frequently, fast.
A good number of locations were like a carefully constructed movie set. Just bring actors and a few lights; ready to film.

And that was it for the city exploration. Then it was time to get food: fajitas. Fantastic finish.
