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.
If you find yourself wandering around the city, do pop down the various alleyways that spider off the Royal Mile, where you’ll find hidden delights like the Writers Museum. I love the sign outside … the idea of someone sitting formally at a desk, dressed to the nines, quill in hand; it’s such a long way from today, where writers grab whatever time they can on their laptops wherever they are.
If you’re reading this in the RSS feed, my original blog post also includes a Google map showing where this photo was taken. Unfortunately I haven’t managed to get the map to appear yet in the RSS feed, so for now you’ll have to click through to my blog if you want to see the map. Sorry.
