Hunting out architecture photo locations in Glasgow

I have written previously about the importance of scouting locations using a minimum of kit so I decided to take some of my own advice and get out and find some buildings to photograph.

Glasgow has an abundance of Edwardian, Victorian (and earlier) architecture but when I am looking for locations I am always drawn to modern buildings.  I like the shapes and different materials used.

The Inovo building (above) is another frequent visit of mine.  With fantastic angles and mixture of glass and steel on the exterior it is well worth visiting to photograph.  I really like this shot and will return fully kitted for a finished shot soon.  Aready made for a long exposure I reckon.

Strathclyde University have lots of buildings scattered all around Glasgow.  The buildings on Cathedral Street are a good mix of old and modern styles - plus, there are lots of other new buildings popping up on Cathedral Street too.

The shot above was taken looking down Cathedral Street toward Glasgow Cathedral.  The building in the foreground has an almost building block look about it - only squares and rectangles used in this part of the building. Again, I think this is worth revisiting to photograph properly.
