The Barras: Sunday 1 July (365.360° Day 343)


After a tasty breakfast at the brilliant Trans-Europe Cafe, I headed to the Barrowlands Market (colloquially known as the Barras) to grab some street candids as I felt it a shocking omission from my street photography in over three years living in Glasgow.

It’s a street tog’s goldmine, although some who frequent the market react less than favourably to having their photo taken (possibly due to some complex relationships with law enforcement agencies).

    • Ha! Glad that tickled you! It’s a very mad place – feels like something only Glasgow could offer up. I could probably go there every Sunday and just bag hundreds of fascinating images.

Hit me up!
