Alleyway In Edinburgh

This week’s theme is the streets of Edinburgh, Scotland’s capital city. I’ve only spent a day in Edinburgh with my camera to date, but instantly fell in love. It’s a much older city than Cardiff, with a richer history that the Scots have preserved in a way that the Welsh sadly haven’t. It’s also a much cleaner city than London, and in my experience the people are much friendlier too. There is much to explore through a lens, and I am looking forward to a longer stay there soon.

One of Edinburgh’s great attractions is the Old Town, centred around the Royal Mile and Cannongate running down from the castle to Holyrood Palace. This area is full of alleyways slipping quietly off to one side or the other, and you never know what you’ll find when you head on down each one.
