Photographer's Note

This advertisement is displayed prominately beside the busy M8 motorway which cuts through the centre of Glasgow.

It proclaims Glasgow's success in winning the bid to become the host city for the 2014 Commonwealth Games, beating off a rival bid from Abuja in Nigeria.

The message is that Glasgow will be ready to be an excellent host city for 2014. The crane poised behind the advert and the cleared ground in the foreground are evidence of regeneration that is going on all over the city.

Glasgow is a city which celebrates sport. Champions League and UEFA Cup finals have been held in the city in recent years with great success. There was a tremendous festival atmosphere in the city on these occasions. I'm sure it will be the same again in 2014.
