"Dinny you try denying it m8 we saw yi grafting on yon UrbanGlasgow.co.uk"
 
Chief Inspector

The social are going to love this thread Alex.
Alex Glass

Given the fact that most people are legitimately employed whats the problem or are you all just at the wind up

Lone Groover

Why would the sight of a very expensiver Bentley with personalised number plates getting a ticket lift my heart just a little ?

Alex Glass

Because it is your neighbours car

Doog Doog

Ok TECHNICALLY these are Glasgow people at work.....
...one of the guys is from Deaconsbank and the other ones from Clydebank ,its just that they happen to work in Paisley.  

Me and the guys cutting pensioner's gardens.





John

Nice one Doog Doog, I`m sure HH will be glad of the help  
Doog Doog

Thanks Scary,I was going to do a wee thing on where I work,a kind of behind-the-scenes type thing and had my wee (3.2mp) camera with me.
The machine I was using had chucked it,so took the opporchancity for some working shots.
wee minx

Excellent Doog Doog

Doog Doog have you ever run the strimmer or a lawnmower over a wasps nest and more importantly have you got any pictures?

people at work

Not sure if this is the right thread to post this or even if its appropriate but I couldnt resist taking the shot
Taken June 2009 Queen St at GOMA

wee minx

That is an excellent shot, just shows society today Norrie
Also when I think about the subject of photos which include children in them.....50 years from now people looking at images will notice the lack of children in them and wonder what on earth was happening, were children not allowed out?
cybers

I just noticed all those sproggs are fastened into the walky-thing....
Whilst i can understand the need how long before a kid takes it parents to court for unlawful shackling


Though for the time being this is a brilliant idea.
norrie

Hi weeminx, thats Glasgow for you, want to know how to get to where ever, ask a punter, good shot.
Bye for now, norrie
Stuball

Can you see how busy a night I had?

Doog Doog

That must've been a boring shift...
norrie

I am sure I know the one on the right

Bye for now, norrie

Minx that post reminds me of something ... must find stick in Glasgow youtube section

Doog Doog

Nice ones Cybers  
Lone Groover

OK, I give in. What kind of post production are you using Cybers?
A bit more than HDR........ pretty damned impressive dude.  
mondobongo

Absolutely stunning image there Cybers!

Is that thon comedian David Mitchell on the motorbike?
Doorstop

I was going to ask pretty much the same question actually.

Is it a cut and paste hybrid between an HDR and a standard image?
cybers

Erm lately i have been giggling as very few of the HDR are actual HDR.
It has been mildly amusing watching comments roll in concerning this in Flickr.

It's actually a Photoshop plugin called Topaz Adjust then it gets finished with a little manual dodge and burn and a sweep over with imageonix Noiseware.
norrie

Hi cybers, you lost me after erm

Bye for now, norrie
cybers

Worry not Norrie heres a better explanation than i could manage
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_dynamic_range_imaging

Mondo i had to google that and I still dont know him  
mondobongo

Sorry to detract from the great picture and thread Cybers.




He's on that stupid Mitchell and Webb programme where they repeat the same fekn sketch ad nauseum about the WWII pilots speaking new London east end... and it is him on the bike!  
cybers

Felt sorry for this poor wee bugger



Whilst standing there looking dejected there was an idiotic pain in the arse spotty manager passing him giving him all sorts of encouragement.
Staun Up Straight
Look Happy
I Mean it
Wit yi dain
Look Cheerful
Be glad you have a joab...
Wull yi look happy ya wee ride....

I passed him also and gave him a bit of encouragement in ear shot of spotty


Next time he passes shove that sign right up his pipe...

Happily the wee man was made of sterner stuff than me but he did smile.

If ever there was a moral reason to bypass Mcdonalds
mondobongo

Maybe he is deliberately pointing the sign at the manager to comment on his sexual prowess... 30 seconds
norrie

Hi cybers, I have seen others totting that sign, got to start somewhere.
Perhaps its a punishment

Bye for now, norrie
cybers

Problem is they probably only change the head on the bloody thing...
Noo brush ya wee oink !!!

What was actually busting my chops about the whole situation was the constant nipping at him by someone who looked a year older but had a MANAGER badge.

Start Somewhere
I would have started at the side of his head couple of jabs to the ribs and finished with a pile driver.
The kid was made of sterner stuff than me though


     
norrie

Hi cybers, right enough calling someone a manager doesnt make to you one.
I have worked with a few who couldnt manage a menage
Bye for now, norrie
cybers

I have a cracker of people at work but it will need saved as it was one of those caught it but wish i had spent more time on the capturing.
But Jessops holding my tripod for 10 days has not helped.

I think so too, they have taken on a lot of youngsters, part time, and the last twice I have been, they have not known enough about the subject, or how to use the products.
cybers

The american girl whom i initially dealt with was wonderful till she spoke to the manager who it turned out funnily enough was a youngster who knew bugger all about scots retail law and tried woefully to pass on his disinformation to me.
Well Mr Loud-boots stirred from his slumber and laid forth a furious wrath and anger, 10 months old already repaired you never gave me my reciept back last time it was fixed dont talk sheckt then i called Livingston on my mobile who said yes David we do have that in stock bring it in why did you go there in the first place did we not warn you about such foolishness and folly.
Livi 2 mins in the door armed with new replacement and then a general 10 min shoot the breeze with friendly conversation.

I think I know who you must have been delt with  
cybers

Euan was his god given name Stu....
Leave it at that  
norrie

Hi guys ,try Merchant City Cameras, Parnie st, just off Saltmarket.
I have dealt with them since I took up photography and have never been ripped off by them, they have been helpful to me over the years
The shop used to  be called Quiggs.

Bye for now, norrie
cybers

Wow Used to use Quiggs in Parnie St donks ago for industrial sized rolls of Ilford...
Is it the same place ?
norrie

Hi Cybers, its changed hands but the guys who now own it had some connection with the previous management
I wont go anywhere else, even though I probably could get cameras cheaper on the net.
wee minx

I was there a few weeks ago, the woman was very helpful, checked my zoom lens for problems, showed me some lenses and other things, very relaxed, I would definitely go back there.

Hi Alex, no need for captions.
cybers

Special set there Alex.
The portrait of the last post is pretty poignant  
Doog Doog

Thats a cracking set,Alex  
Alex Glass

Thanks guys  

A similar photo was used by the Evening Times on the 11th.

It was great to be able to take part in this commemoration of the soldiers who have given their lives in defence of everyone. A bonus to be in a reasonable position to take photos as well.
steviem

Those were a great set Alex.No words needed !.Attended many a service with the Boys Brigade years ago.
Alex Glass

Thanks Stevie

As an old BB boy myself I know what you mean.

I am going to try and get access to the old Colours for the company I was in. I am sure they are still in the possession of the church
