Design is easy.....?

Always on the look out for design/film/animation/photo taking inspiration - Oh, and travel ideas, (although anything in Japan will always win hands down for me). Currently based in the North East of Scotland.

Went for a wander at lunchtime with a colleague, and nipped into Union
Terrace Gardens. Have to admit I don't use it as much as I should. Although it plays a part in my life daily, i.e - passing it every day on the bus, walking through it as a shortcut etc. But today I made an effort to actually visit it. It's a lovely garden, and full of memories for me - it's where my first graduation photos were taken, where I rolled down one of the hills when tipsy after finding out I'd got my first graphics job, had conversations, tears and debates with friends, flatmates and old boyfriends, along with boozy picnics and general sunbathing. It's where I made the decision to quit one of my jobs, and where I went to sketch when at college. Unfortunately some oil businessman with an uncreative outlook and huge ego wants to concrete it all over and add a shopping mall when we can't even fill our 5/6 other centres - So I am determined to enjoy it while I can, make new memories - and, of course, reminisce. :)

Unfortunately t it's already been decided - you can read about it here and also here if you are interested. Lots of campaigning and a lovely unobtrusive arts centre were swept aside for more granite and concrete in a city already overloaded with it. :(
