Two posts in the one week – and they said it couldn’t be done! So I was lucky enough to get to travel to Edinburgh last weekend for Kevin’s (Kevoto.com) stag weekend. Now stag weekends aren’t my thing, but this one was excellent. We sat around, drank tea and ate shortbread (we were in Scotland after all) for the weekend. Between the furious tea tasting sessions, I managed to get a few shots on my way home while sight seeing.
Cockburn St. – snakes uphill to join with High St. The buildings are just amazing, I don’t think I’ve done any of them justice. When you walk along the streets, you can’t help but feel that this place has real wealth behind it.
Right in the heart of the city, if you look behind the magnificent old buildings, you find lots of places like this. It’s like the setting for a crime scene – like something out of Taggart… but set in Edinburgh obviously.
This place is full of odd angles, curves, shapes and lines all intersecting each other in odd places and ways. I’m sure it all made sense as these buildings were being constructed. Every angle has a purpose.
All I can say is what a city.
Best of luck to Kev and Edel who are getting hitched today – I hope you two have a long and happy life together. 🙂
