Glasgow Commonwealth Games Opening Ceremony Bingo

The Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games are drawing to a close today. For the past ten days the city has been a riot of tourists, volunteers and athletes. Last weekend there was a marathon going through the streets and a flotilla sailing up the River Clyde. Tonight will be the closing ceremony and Scotland will hand over the baton to Australia who are hosting the 21st Commonwealth Games in 2018.

I still haven't been able to get over the epic party that was the Opening Ceremony- I really don't know what's going to happen tonight after that. Whilst I loved it, lots of people didn't and felt that it was just a hodge podge of Scottish cliches.

I set off yesterday to find examples in Glasgow of as many of the things that were mentioned in the Opening Ceremony "Welcome to Scotland" song as I could. Then made it into a really long video.

Highlights include: HAIRY COOS at 4.15 and a musical interlude at 9 minutes (you have been warned!)


(The original thumbnail picture of this is an awful shot where I look like junkie, I've clicked the button to change it but it doesn't seem to have taken affect yet so if I look like pixelated drunk please ignore that.)

I hope you enjoy it, and can forgive my clear lack of film skills. I sort of know what I'm doing with camera to take photographs, moving pictures are a whole different ball game...
