Merchant City Festival.

Every year in Glasgow's Merchant City, there is an annual festival of the weird and wonderful. If you missed it this year, don't miss out next time round as nearly all of it is free.

I spotted this rather surreal "Alice In Wonderlandish" musical dance troupe performing in George Square. When one of the dancers up ended herself, it was all to much for one spectator.

In a word, bizarre!

The Worlds Best Cheese Shop.

Recently opened on Byres Road, Glasgow, is George Mewes Cheese.

Now the word passionate is much banded about, usually alongside some footballer or other. Well, in George's case it is totally justified. What this man doesn't know about cheese doesn't matter.

One visit and you're hooked!

A White Heilan Coo!

I don't think I had ever seen a white highland cow until last Monday.

They are very rare but look great amongst the red hairy herd.

It's A Jungle Out There!

At six thirty this morning, I heard my resident magpies making much more noise than usual. This is usually a sign that some other poor animal is being hounded out of their territory.

What I saw next was quite astonishing as the recipient of their angst was none other than one of my resident foxes who had the temerity to enjoy a spot of early morning sun bathing.

The aggressive creatures were pecking away at its tail and other parts of its body and in the end foxy decided after a quick scratch, on an ignominious retreat back into the bushes.

Bully boy magpies rule the roost here in Clydebank.

This Was A Ruff Job.

Meet Buzz.

Buzz is a one year old Border Terrier and was he full of beans.

Once he had disgraced himself and calmed down, I managed to get him to sit still long enough to grab a couple of portraits.

I would love a dog but due to the nature of my work, it's not a practical idea.
