    Edinburgh - The Theme is Red

    Going through some shots from earlier in the week, I noticed I appear to have an attraction for the colour Red.



    The Mound




    High Street




    Holyrood

    Whenever I look at shots of Edinburgh, all I can think of is REbus . . . . and Iain Banks in the pub with Mr Rankin!

    I especially like the Holyrood shot.

    Just this guy you know

    Love the city too! Seems like I was there just yesterday (don't I wish). I recall a night when I was running low on film and wondered if I'd have enough for my evening cityscape and street shots. I guess M9 (or M8) just a seed in an engineers mind at that point?

    These shots also remind me of the kind of shots where most all colors are desaturated, except "red' which is vividly shown (although I realize that wasn't done here). Probably becuase in the first shot, the stone (granite?) buildings are neutral in color Thanks for posting!

    David: Very nice and red. It is a color that I associate with Scotland: tartans. I wonder which clan my daughter's parochial school skirt was from? About time for another visit to Edinburgh; or, at least an Ian Rankin read. Cheers, Matt.
