A ragwort clings to the supporting column under the railway bridge into Glasgow Central Station with an old telegraph insulator for company. The bridge has quite a few plants and bushes growing out of some of the crevices and for this week’s photograph it was another difficult choice between this image, one of three bushes growing through the side of the bridge and another of grass and weeds overgrowing the old dock rails on the south side underneath the bridge but these will be added to a “new images” post in due course.
This image was taken on Monday 13th May 2013. I knew the weather was likely to make this project a challenge to get a new image each week and so I took advantage of a break in the rain on this cold and windy evening to get this weeks image early. I had originally set out to photograph the area around the Saltmarket and the old railway bridge that used to carry the lines into (the long gone) St Enoch Station which is now covered in overgrowth but alas a heavy downpour forced me to take shelter in Argyle Street and somehow I ended up below central station.
