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.
To finish off this week’s photos, and indeed the current theme of the streets of Edinburgh, what better way to end a Friday than with a pub. The Half Way House is very aptly named, as it is found half way up (or down, depending on your starting point!) a huge flight of stairs that form one of the alleys in Old Town. I admit, I chickened out on account of my crocked knee, and didn’t get to find out whether the assent / decent was worth it. Answers on a postcard, please (or in the comments below).
I hope you’ve enjoyed the last two weeks of photos from the streets of Edinburgh. I’ve got plenty more of these still to share with you for future weeks, so look out for them when I return to posting about this enchanting city later in the year.
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.
