I would have been quite content staying in the warms of our four walls, but no my husband says lets go out for a walk in the park. The park in question was Kelvingrove Park.
It took us past my old University - Glasgow.
On the other side of the University is Kelvingrove Museum.
Still red berries
straddles of the River Kelvin
I don't recall seeing this abstract wooden stick figure before, but to be honest in my student days I had other distractions than the colours of the park. I could not quite figure what the stick figure represented, on first glance I thought it was a Scottish piper,
but upon scraping the snow away, the words 'The Psalmist' were revealed. The Psalmist is a well-defined figure in the Bible. Its by the artist Benno Schotz.
Onwards and upwards, next came the monument of Joseph Lister, a pioneer of antiseptic surgery.
then Lord Kelvin himself.
Although I had my walking boots on, the tippy of my toes were feeling a bit nippy, I wish I had put on thicker socks. So refuge was sought inside the Kelvingrove Museum. I've featured my adventures at the Kelvingrove museum before. If you have not read about it, then please follow this link. Today, we just looked at the new exhibitions.
This eye installations was one of them. Pretty cool I think. The eye followed you as you moved. If you look close, you will see D in this one.
Then me and D together.
Then just me - all smiles. Can you see me wrapped up all snuggly and warm?!
We also wandered again through the Real Glasgow Stories section: How Glasgow inspires and infuriates people. The good - positive contributions of migrant communities and the not so good, such as Sectarianism: religious intolerance between Catholic and Protestant communities.
