Mixed media collage: is this the Glasgow in Bits eBook cover?
Glasgow+in+Bits+Collage+Mixed+Media

I have been a bit quiet on the photography front recently but I have been trying out loads of ideas for the next edition of the Glasgow in Bits eBook.

Honestly, I have never really been happy with the original covers.  The first two versions of the eBook seem to have been rushed out a bit quicker than they should have been and on both occasions the cover image was a bit ‘splash and dash’ I suppose.  You live and learn.

After a few missteps I have created something I am actually happy with and (at this stage) I am ninety percent sure this will be the cover image for the next edition of the Glasgow in Bits eBook.

The collage its is created using only photographs taken for the Glasgow in Bits project and was entirely analogue until the very last stage where I photographed the design and added a few paint splatters etc in Photoshop.  I have to admit just being away from the computer I creating something using such simple tools was a really enjoyable experience, and one I am sure I will take up again soon.

My Glasgow in Bits project has been coming together quite nicely over the last few months with new shots are been added on a regular basis.

Glasgow in Bits began life as a way of bringing together a number many disparate images that I had created during different walks around the city trying out different lenses, focal lengths, or photographic styles.

However, in recent months the project has morphed in to a kid of photographic document of Glasgow’s smaller spaces, back streets, architectural details, textures and shapes.

The city itself is always under development and the speed of change with Glasgow is remarkable. It will be interesting look back on what has changed and what has remained in the city centre in the coming years.

This is version one of the eBook and I am aiming to create new versions every six months or so - the number of photographs that I post to the website means that it can be appreciate the flow of the project. Creating the eBook is also a nice way of culling shots and building a collection of photographs to showcase the project as a whole.
