Photographer's Note

It would appear that my friends here are now all dedicating pictures to other TE members, so this time I'm uploading this one for Rosemary (SnapRJW) who recently told me that she had come to visit the new Riverside Museum of Transport in Glasgow last year during her visit to Britain but unfortunately the museum was closed that day and she got dreadfully soaked in heavy rain outside it.

So this is a little part of what she missed - a reconstructed street scene of how Glasgow might have looked in the 1920s. Old shops (which you can enter and browse around) and, if Marion (jester5) is looking, there's a nice blue 1920s' Austin 12/4 fabric bodied saloon behind that lamppost - similar to the one she posted here.

Once again, I never cease to be amazed by the low light capabilities of my lovely Canon 5D MkII - I wonder if the new Mk III will be such a wonderful improvement? This was taken at ISO 6400 - maybe one day we shall all be taking pictures in the pitch dark.

I might try to upload some other pictures from this museum later though I realise that although old cars and steam trains interest me, many find them a bit boring!

P.S. Some have commented upon the blue/purple light in the foreground. This picture was taken entirely indoors - inside the museum - and the area you see in the distance was lit by daylight coming in through a large window. The nearest part was lit by lights high in the roof of the museum above the reconstructed street scene and those lights were mainly blue, hence the blue light on the roadway and the back of the truck on the left.
