Discovering the Beauty of Glasgow in Ten Photos

This week is the second installment of my fake FriFotos photo series, and I decided to focus on just one destination instead of a broad theme – Glasgow. I recently visited the largest city in Scotland and walked away much more impressed than I thought I would be. I honestly didn’t have high expectations of the city; one that I knew would lack the character of nearby Edinburgh. But for what Glasgow lakes in castles and old stone buildings, it more than makes up for in architectural diversity and at times brilliance. I could spend days just walking around and admiring all of the structures, but here I decided to showcase ten of my favorite Glasgow photos.
