When based in Edinburgh for the majority of the year, I constantly immerse myself in all activities of the fun variety and try to regularly pursue all of my hobbies and interests. It helps to suppress the symptoms of the old travel addiction and Peter Pan syndrome, and allows me to nurture the turbulent relationship between myself and my home city; one day I’m in love, the next I’m making frantic plans to leave.
With all its bonnie buildings, cobbled streets and rather large leftover volcano pieces – plus a particularly impressive castle sitting on top of one of said pieces – Edinburgh is one of the most photogenic cities on the planet! This has turned me in to a serial snapper (a photography phrase I just made up), who rarely ventures out without ones camera.
“Won’t you run out of stuff to photograph?” I was asked one day. Hmmm.
I mean, there’s no shortage of sights and streets to capture in the city, but most of them have already been bombarded by tourists and photographers. This leaves you with only the perspective to play with, the opportunity to capture it in a way it hasn’t been seen before.
Alright. So I’m no psychic, but I do have a crystal ball.
What can you see inside?
I (literally) had a ball taking these pictures around Edinburgh, but can you guess where each of them was taken?
