Weekly Photo Challenge: Spare

My entry this week for the theme Spare is an image from a  recent walk to The Whangie in the Kilpatrick Hills, Scotland. The first time I came here we completely missed this geological feature, but have been more successfully since then. The Whangie formed as a result of glacial erosion and appears as a tall rock corridor on the side of the hill. Along the walk we had views of Loch Lomond, the Highlands and the Campsies.

WPC: Inspiration

My immediate thoughts on the topic of inspiration were images of locations where I have been and felt inspired by the beauty of my surroundings; high on hill top or mountain surveying the scenery below and the clouds above; trips to the beach at anytime of the year, the loud crash of waves or the gentle soft waves covering my feet; a building design that has encourages me to keep exploring finding locations within in that giving me different perspectives of inside and outside. The images above are of a performance inspired by the dynamic River Clyde which winds its way through the different urban environments of Glasgow and beyond.

As part of the Glasgow Commonwealth Games 2014 there were a number of cultural events and performances taking place to celebrate. I went along to see a performance of “The River” along the River Clyde. It was a community dance performance moving from The Briggait to the River walkway and then back to The Briggait. In the days leading up to the performance my fingers were crossed that we would get good weather and we did. It was an engaging and thought provoking performance involving a multi-generational community cast. I began to view the walkway that runs along the river in a renewed context. It’s a route I enjoy particularly in summer as the River rushes by the busy Glasgow metropolis.

This is my entry for the Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Symmetry

This image is from an evening last summer when a few friends and I went to see Perch  produced by Conflux part of the Glasgow Commonwealth Games Cultural celebrations. It was really interesting to see a space I was familiar with used in such a creative way, zip wires, crazy characters and aerial ballet dancer move along the side of a building. The windows were used as a projection screen for a live link up with Brazil and for the fun animation shown in the image above.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Express yourself

These dancers were dancing in response to the images and themes of the exhibition. It was great to watch the movement of the children within the piece and also how it inspired some of the children in the audience to take part  too :-).

I really enjoyed watching this contemporary dance performance experiencing how the  dancers communicated with the audience and their fluid ability to express themselves.
