An impressive neo-Gothc Cathedral. Looks like sandstone. Any quarries around Glasgow?
Have a pleasant and dry weekend, Joe.

Yes, Tacheles, there are quarries around Glasgow, I am not sure with which kind of stone this cathedral was built. Thanks for your very kind comment.

I hope you have a good weekend too.

All the best,

Joe

A small cathedral full of grace. Unfortunately architectural aberrations are often built around. Interesting explanation. Warm greetings, Anton

I agree, Anton, modern architecture is often incongruous with the surrounding older buildings. Thanks for your very kind comment. Best wishes, Joe

A very impressive shot of this handsome Cathedral Joe. Apart from the beautiful detail, sharpness and colour, I love the blue reflections from the glass of the adjacent building. I wonder what is going on between the two buildings? Cheers, Rosa.

I am not sure what is happening in the space between the two buildings, Rosa, as I haven't been to Glasgow since the lock-down started. I have been in there, and there is a nice garden, that belongs to the Cathedral. I did take take a photograph there four years ago, which, just for you, I will publish soon. Thanks for your very kind comment. Cheers, Joe

I was going to say that you had a wonderful day of weather, but I see that this was taken before the lockdown on one of those heady days where we could go anywhere and do anything. A handsome church looking in lovely condition with a hint of reflection in this pristine street.

Yes, Amelia, I took this pic three weeks before the lockdown kicked in. I have been inside the cathedral a few times. The interior is quite beautiful. Thanks for your very kind comment. All the best, Joe
