The travels, musings and thoughts of a man and his camera.

EDINBURGH. Assembly Close.

Edinburgh is a city I visit whenever the chance comes along. It’s a place of many attractions, I suppose the dominating ones are the Festival and the Fringe, though these are not the only ones Edinburgh has to offer. The architecture of the old town with it’s helter skelter of streets cascading down from the castle contrasting with the stately grandeur of the Georgian New Town of wide vistas and stately squares. This passing shot was taken on the Old Town’s Royal Mile, the Closes fascinate me, alleyways that dart off unannounced by a logic of their own to destinations unseen. If you pass at the right moment and the photographic gods smile you can frame a moment, freeze a little bit of time, halt the hour glass’s sands for a brief period, then in another couple of steps you’re past and the story carries on unobserved.
