The Scott Monument - Bottom Half

My theme this week is the wonderfully gothic Scott Monument in Edinburgh, a memorial to the great writer Sir Walter Scott, who died in 1832.

This is the bottom half of the Scott Monument. The monument rises above the city skyline to a height of 61 metres, making it very tricky to capture in a single shot. Beneath the monument sits Sir Walter Scott himself, with his dog Maida, sculpted by Sir John Steell.

The Vulcan Survives - For Now

In the last ten years, Cardiff City Centre has been transformed by a wide variety of building projects. In the middle of it all, bravely defying the developers who are ripping the historic heart out of Cardiff, sits the Vulcan public house. It survives … for now.
