"My good friend Archie Bain is one of life’s great characters. He will often recite you Wordsworth, Shakespeare, Burns or sing you an auld Scot’s song and will definitely tell you a joke or a funny story. He is in his mid seventies and I have heard many a younger person say “I wish I had his brain”."
"This shelter is located at Ardbeg Point, on the Isle of Bute, near Rothesay. I was down there recently (as noted on other photos) for my parents' Golden Wedding celebrations. There used be a number of these shelters around the island, but there seemed many fewer this time. However, I don't recall one being this nicely decorated on previous visits."
"The ferry seen in this photo was launched yesterday in great fanfare.
It's a rare sight and quite sad as well because large ships were built and launched almost weekly in the Clyde shipyards, all within living memory. But the shipyards have long gone, replaced by Tesco supermarket, expensive houses and vast unemployment with it's problems of depression, drugs, alcohol, crime, health and vision. A sad end to a great industry."
"The Norbord factory is a wood processing plant near Inverness, making products like chip board. There is always steam rising from the chimney and at night the plant looks like a giant robot.
I stood in a very dark field to get this shot, trying to time the exposure between the passing of cars and trucks on the road in front. I took many shots, but as is often the case, the first couple were the best and I'm a bit surprised a few stars can be seen."
"Hayley Ross, one of the Turriff team.
Played one of the best set moves I've seen in a long time, up the entire left hand side of the pitch and switched the ball over to the right to allow Debbie to sink it into the back of the Stonehaven net, a move that any Premiership side would have been proud of"
And of course the quirky....
