A series of street scenes on Hope Street in the City Centre in Glasgow, Scotland.
Telephoto lens (focal lengths between 55mm and 200mm) and large apertures have been used to render parts of the scenes out of focus, alter perceptions of scale and exaggerate the urban density and congestion in the images.
Running alongside Central Station, the main railway terminus in Glasgow, Hope Street is one of the main bus-routes through the city centre. Despite restrictions on private vehicles along part of the street, traffic is congested throughout much of the day and it is widely reported to be the most polluted street in Scotland.
