A new bar on Great Western Road, Glasgow.
This post was shared on Tumblr and has since gained over 30,000 notes. That makes it my most popular photo ever published, and it was an afterthought that I posted it in the first place.
Someone on Tumblr has identified the fungus as Honey Fungus (Amillaria spp.). Apparently they are edible, but I’m not going to try.
This is another photo from my second fungal foray, but one which I’d not included in the previous gallery. Going over the photos again, I decided I really liked the way these fungal bodies spiraled and climbed around the mossy trunk of the tree.

This is another night-time picture from my last trip to Glasgow, letting the camera do its own thing, with reasonable results.
The building stands in isolation in St Enoch Square, just north of the River Clyde in Glasgow’s city centre. Originally built in 1896, this was the ticket office to the subway (Glasgow’s own underground railway) and the headquarters of the Glasgow District Subway Railway Company. When the St Enoch subway station was redeveloped in the 1970s the building became redundant and is now a Caffè Nero coffee shop.
The building is a visual delight and is, of course, listed. The listing details can be found on the Historic Scotland Listed Buildings register.
This chair, next to my desk, is where Nish always used to curl up when I was working (or loafing). It’s nice to have a cat’s company, and it was really pleasing when Tinkerbell assumed the position last night. She was only startled when the printer started chuntering, and it really grabbed her attention!
