Telephone box by Dan Thompson.

We love this spring shot from Dan Thompson, 2019 alumni of BA History & Journalism with Creative Writing. So much so we've chosen it as the winning entry in our spring #StrathLife photo comp!

BT recently put their red phone boxes up for sale for just £1 to encourage local communities to take advantage and transform them for the 21st century. We love them just the way they are!

Cherry blossom with the McLennan Arch in the background.

"The photo was taken at our favourite park, Glasgow Green. The photo captures the beauty of McLennan Arch covered in Cherry blossoms.

"Glasgow is a great place and it has variety of things to offer. The McLellan arch is like Glasgow's own Arc de Triomphe. It has fantastic architecture with rich history. When spring starts in Glasgow, it beats back the harsh winter blues and takes us to magical cherry blossoms. Apart from warmer weather and blooming flowers, spring also brings longer and brighter days."

"After the cold and gloomy winter, sunlight in the cheerful spring makes our souls smile and it doesn't just shine, but you feel joyful with the lovely flowers. That's why I love this city. Glasgow has it all."
