Beautiful Govan

Although it might not initially be obvious, Govan is surrounded by small and large pockets of beautiful nature. This series of images explore these places and the photographers often found themselves drawn towards them. The camera gives them the ability to focus in on these details, and pull these spots out of their surroundings, to be admired. Framing the glossy leaves on the full trees in the Elderpark, the vivid iridescent glow through the cherry blossom that lines Garmouth Street in the spring, and the close-ups off the fresh herbs that grow and the bees that buzz in the Moogety community garden.

The community garden and Elderpark feature most heavily in this series. Elderpark was bequeathed to the people by Isabella Elder, wife of John Elder. The community garden was named by Noah, a child in the neighbourhood, then aged three, who could not pronounce community and only Moogety.
