I had to pop into Glasgow in early November for an event at the Scottish Events Campus.
I think it's the first time I've ever snuck out of a Q&A to take pictures of the conference hall.
Or skipped a drink with old colleagues to find the right riverside spot to capture fireworks in the smoky atmosphere of bonfire night.
There's lots you could criticise about the cityscape of the regenerated docklands, filled as they are with dual carriageways and huge surface car parks. But they have set up some fine photo subjects.
