When visiting my gran who lived in Bull’s Close, my mum and dad would do ‘henners’ over the railings which ran down the centre, as in your photo. Any chance of a photo of Bull’s Close please??

Amazing image. Can't place where it is

beautiful photo in black and white๐Ÿ™‚ of Edinburgh

Breathtaking! While I don't really understand your "language" sometimes, your photographs do the talking for you - this one is a stunner with the dark landscape and fog covering the buildings - a bit eerie but I love it!

Edinburgh haar rolling in off the Forth is anything but funny and chills to the bone. Nice image and RLS was spot on.

Nice photo of Edinburgh cover by the fog!!!๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ™‚๐Ÿ˜‰๐Ÿ˜

A stunning city you could never tire of photographing! Thank you for sharing your images. Happy Shooting.

Beautiful photo - and not only do I love the view; but you've made a nice, sunny day look very bright and cheerful in black and white!

Amazing!

This scene was made for black and white - a rather lonely view - deserted storefronts with only a couple walking along the sidewalk - and the fog offering a desolate appearance to the neighborhood - seems to spread a message of "stay in, stay warm and have a coffee"!

Wow that's amazing ! A rare dazzling talent

Great old photo ! ๐Ÿ‘

That is portrayed through your photography as being very tranquil amongst a busy city. Great image !

Feels like I’m there๐Ÿ˜Š

As an outsider living in the city for 25 years I'm still amazed how photogenic and unique the closes are

Close between Cockburn Street and Market Street. There were two pet shops there that I used to use. Many years ago. ๐Ÿ‘

Lemony Snicket! A brilliant series of books, far more fun than H Potter.

Great image

They call it - Edinburgh’s Disgrace but it is an icon of the capital city and built above the Greek temple like structure of the old Royal High School Edinburgh can be proud of both structures and that they have been maintained as landmarks A city in a million!!

Magnificent Edinburgh could not wish for better presentations than your sharp, clear, amazing photographs - love this one showing such gorgeous buildings - and with the sun shining down, it's so cheerful looking - even in black and white!

Great image brilliant quote

This is really well done. Straight out of the 1950's.
