Candleriggs! Isn’t that a nice name for a street?
I was heading back towards Glasgow’s Bus Station, trying to make the most of my diminishing time. I knew that I was in the area of the old covered cheese and fruit markets, now developed into Merchant Square. A quick ogle at the array of restaurants and it was time to move on.
The tip of a nose, and then an eye, caught my attention as I rounded the corner. Across a gritty, scruffy, car-parking area I was looking at the most entrancing mural. It covered the entire wall.
I thought it was incredibly lovely and stood transfixed, wondering how and why it came to be here. Then I squeezed between the cars, trying to capture the whole of it. I left with a huge smile on my face on a dour Glasgow day.
