Guest appearance of Glasgow, here for a meeting.

Wednesday, 28 August 2013


The Book Festival finished with a schools day yesterday and now needs some deconstruction. It has had the best weather for 10 years and no appearance of the usual mud.  Should make work on restoring the site easier.

The Castle, East Side

From Castle Terrace.

Teuchters Landing

At the periphery of the old Leith Docks the outdoor area of the pub previously known as the Waterfront.  Should have stuck with the old name.

Rannoch Wall

A guest appearance of Buchaille Etive Mor in Glencoe.  The famous Rannoch Wall with numerous excellent climbing routes. There is a climber getting ready near the centre of the picture.  Wearing a blue top.  Taken with my phone.

One of the shows at the Assembly Hall.  Traditional African drumming, a fun show for all the family.

Bulk rubbish, beloved by the Council detested by the citizens. Hideous bins with attendant piles of rubbish everywhere. This the noisy emptying of a bin.

Tickling Jock

The Portrait Gallery have been running a series of comedy events under the above title to go with their exhibition of the same name. There was also a conversation between A L Kennedy and John Byrne who is depicted in the self portrait behind Jo Caufield.  Good night out.

Stop Code

The stop code for a bus stop on Princes Street. Used in conjunction with a smart phone app for Lothian buses.  Very handy, too wet to walk.

John Knox by Night

The Assembly Hall, home to the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland, acts as a venue during the Festival. Surrounded by revellers and booze, what would he have made of it all. Dodgy phone pic.

Small Venue

Or rather a small venue within a venue. The Loo at Bon Papillion in Howe Street is full of paintings by one of the proprietors, Ingrid Nilsson.  BP has featured before and is highly recommended, this is an extra.

Book Festival

The annual tented village that is the Edinburgh International Book Festival opened at the weekend and so far no torrential downpours, just a few showers.
Lack of posts due to no broadband while changing providers.
