Saxe Coburg Place

A lovely little Georgian Square.  The cars do rather spoil it, should be carriages.

Tuesday, 29 January 2013


Mellis the cheesemongers in Deanhaugh Street occasionally have someone offering samples to passers by.  Gone a bit quiet.

Honest Abe

Using the release of the film "Lincoln" a shot of the memorial (again) in the Old Calton Burial Ground.  The first statue of Lincoln outside the United States.  (It was either that or go out in cold, wet, miserable conditions).

Stockbridge Market

Blustery, dull and cold but the market goes on. Open on Sundays.

New Species?

Popped out of the egg-box like this.  Fiendish genetic manipulation I think.  Lack of posts due to both cameras being out of commission.  One now fixed.

Gable End.

Georgian gable end in Howe Street.  Making good use of the roof space.

Grey rather than White.

The snow keeps trying but can't quite make it.  Ferry Road.

Going, Going....

Almost gone.  Very little snow remaining while plenty down south and even in Paris. My favourite New Town doors in Heriot Row.

Enough snow in the city for some sledging in Queen Street Gardens. Lack of posts due to Trade show in London.

Calton Hill

The buildings in the foreground are in Waterloo Place.  Behind them the old buildings are on Calton Hill, a steep little street which comes up from Leith Street to join Waterloo Place. Calton Hill proper to the rear.   A sunny day for the New Year.
