Photographer's Note

Hello Everyone,

Well, here's Glasgow, site of the 20th Commonwealth Games!

My husband and I have just spent a few days in Scotland in general, Glasgow in particular, especially for the Games.

My photograph shows a bridge, which many will have seen if they have been watching the television coverage of the Games, for it can be seen from the window of BBC Scotland.

I just managed to capture it as a red tour bus rounded the corner.

On the lampposts, you will be able to see the banners advertising the Games, whilst on the pavements were crowds heading towards the marina to witness the arrival of the flotilla, up the Clyde River. The flotilla involved more than a thousand people on 250 boats of all shapes and sizes. The RYA Scotland Commonwealth Flotilla departed from Greenock on Saturday 26 July – making its spectacular journey to the heart of the city to join in the celebrations of the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.

We loved every minute of our time in Glasgow, soaking up the mood and taking time to watch badminton and rugby 7's.

Hope you enjoy the Commonwealth Games, too, Bev :-)

See it here on Beta for an unreduced, sharper photograph.
