Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum

Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum

Spent a couple of fun hours out of the grey and drizzle in the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. Being a Glasgow University graduate, it’s always a little bit of a homecoming heading West. The Museum itself is looking great after it has be refurbished. The website said I should ask permission before taking photos, which I did, they said it was ok if they were just for me, which they are. They have a no-tripod rule so all the HDR here is using my tried and tested ‘guerilla’ HDR of skulking about looking for flat bits, long since proven in many drunken streets across Europe. Anyway, definitely worth a visit, what with it costing nothing and there being a Spitfire there.

Expressions

Lots of Expressions

Hanging above the galleries is a very cool exhibitions of heads with different expressions on their faces. It’s very effective.

Obviously, the highlight for any plane-geek is the Spitfire.

Which inevitably means you take a lot of photos of it.

The central gallery is dominated by the huge organ at one end. It’s also where you can get a coffee.

Corridor

The building itself seems to always remain the star of the show. It really is a beautiful place – even without any exhibits.

What Victorian era museum is complete without the terrible lizards threatening to deprive you of your head?

And if the dinosaur doesn’t get you, these guys will.

Couldn’t be in the area without grabbing a quick snap of the Glasgow University, even if it was a little grey and wet.

  1. One of my favourite places to go in Glasgow. Your photos are gorgeous.
    It is nice to bring myself back to Glasgow even if it is through photo. Sad to say Glasgow is the place i say is home.
