Excellent picture. Lots to look at and I think the B&W adds to the atmosphere.

Saw the title and expected a portrait, Ronnie!
Has to be b&w I feel. Colour wouldn't bring out the same amount of detail, I think.

Makes a great mono with a touch of realism.

Mono is entirely suitable medium to present us with this less than salubrious view of Glasgow. Very good photo journalism Ronnie and what a contrast to yesterday's image.

You have captured the rear of what I believe will be coffee shops,pubs and restaurants very well. B&W has helped to isolate and identify the individual items within the image extremely well!

A messy, mish-mash, melange of miscellany, Ronnie... but, as pointed out, it is litter-free. Attention to composition and the mono conversion has produced a fine image.

This is universal somehow, the story of our Victorian city centres. Smart modern shop fronts, grotty back alleys. Dustbins, window bars, drainpipes, anti-vandal defences. A couple of kitchen staff on a fag-break.
I'm surprised that there aren't two sets of double yellow lines - in one of Newcastle's back lanes they almost touch in the middle!

The monochrome processing for me adds a sense of caution and danger to the image which for me adds mystery and intrigue.

Every city has its back streets Ronnie, the clarity in this is excellent and perfect for mono, I seem to remember many years ago in Glasgow very tall flats by the side of smoke stacks! On some days you could not see the top flats as they were in the smoke, that is going back some years, not sure if it is still the same now if they have not been pulled down?
