Royal Exchange Square – A Canopy of Twinkling Lights

I was running a little late for getting my train home from work tonight so, rather than arrive at the station out of breath, I made a small detour to look at the magazines in Borders in Buchanan Street. I had forgotten that I had seen an article on how this year’s canopy of lights had been raised over Royal Exchange Square earlier in the week. Instead of browsing magazines, I grabbed a few shots from the back of Borders…

The fine building on the right of this first photo is the rear of the former “Stirling’s Library“.

The second shot is looking down the north side of the former Stirling’s Library – that’s Queen Street in the distance.

These shots were taken with “Ixy, the belt-cam”. Since the main Christmas lights are due to be officially turned on in George Square on Sunday (for those who don’t know Glasgow, that’s about a minute away) I think I’d like to try to return some time with Ixy’s big brother EOS – and Manny the tripod. 🙂
