Wow! Amazing!

Love the photo but I can’t figure out exactly where it is. I left Edinburgh 57 years ago so I can’t go wandering around looking for it! Please tell me!🥰

child o the 70s here, yep. When kids' tv was excellent

Up above the streets and houses rainbow planting time....paint the whole world with a rainbow ! ☺

I always think of this tune 🎶 when I get the train from Fife to Edinburgh. As the train leaves the Forth Bridge there's a section where you are literally "up above the streets and houses" 😃

Castle esplanade was my playground in the early 50’s .

One of my favorites!

All of us of a certain age 😁🌈🎶😊🌈

I had the LP lol 🤣

My home City Edinburgh

Got the theme tune playing in my head now 🤣

Everybody knows that Geoffrey.....

Fantastic and sooo beautiful and amazing

“Everything is anarchy. There is only one protection from it. Love. Love is a bubble of isolation. A way of making sense of your existence. I am here for you. Only you. If you are here for me too then we two can make a life worth living. At the scale of two you can avoid the waves of chaos.

I think clouds are more like poems written on the sky. Trees are rooted in the ground.

Beautifully framed, and the almost sepia tone lends such a different and welcome atmosphere.

Fascinatingly sinister
