I found this pretty odd 2 seconds after I took it!

Please believe me this has not been Photoshopped or altered in any way, apart from a resize, it's just how it came out of my wee digital.

Were you moving as you took it? I had a similar effect on a Turbostar that shot straight past me, all the doors looked bent at the bottom.

Got it in one. I was in our rescue boat, and my own bow wave hit the boat as I pressed the shutter.

Don't know if it was a real project then was abandoned or whether it's a joke or something. The CCTV warning seems real though, there is a wee camera in a mesh cage trained on the site.

On closer inspection, we can see the buckfast brigade have given their verdict

This seems to be quite common on waste ground in the Gorbals...On what was McKinlay st, just off Pollokshaws rd i found these

I suppose they are mini allotments, these ones actually look cared for unlike the others.
I see dead buildings...

Trouble free cats in Carmyle Ave (don't miss the one climbing the rope).

Same house has a sign declaring 'Area 51' on its gates :?

Not really an oddity but thought I would chuck it in this. Grabbed this whilst at a friends house.

Half Life 2 anyone?

Haha, love it leper.

(according to the filename, the 49th picture i took with my new camera. I'm now up to about 1400, in 2 weeks, which is scary, but if i shoot enough stuff some of it will look decent. That's the theory... I've never used a sunbed myself, but they do look pretty space-age.

Fudding about with the shutter speed, this was at 1/2000. I need to dust my light bulbs...
