Mysteriously dark. My thoughts went to the Duke of Wellington or perhaps it's some other seafaring captain? Fabulous!!

I can feel he chill in the air, his heavy breathing as he is on a mission. Love it!

Really atmospheric.Very mystical and intriguing. πŸ’•

This reminds me of the Amadeus movie posters from roughly a thousand years ago.

I look at these dark scenes and instantly think of Burke & Hare.

What’s napoleon doing in Edinburgh?

Love this!

People can be in solitude on a busy street,and on a quiet street they can be full of joyful thoughts and good memories. It lies within ourselves ,and whats going on in our hearts and minds.

Havala, this is another one I follow.

So true of many crowded places!!

Fabulous street

Love it x

I have had the best of times there

A multidude of solitude😩😩😩

It was the best of times. It was the worst of times.

Definitely reminds me Of home. Although NZ is my home as well, these pictures really make me miss Edinburgh (in a good way)

Have walked that street many times, hopefully do it again some time this year.🀞😊🀞

WALKED THESE STREETS WHEN LAST IN SCOTLAND.

Such a wonderful photo & post!

Lovely photo of Victoria Street. Walked that area of Edinburgh a few times.

Heading down towards the Grassmarket...love that area of the city

I miss these streets πŸ˜ͺ

So much truth in that Dickens quote!! Love this!

Edinburgh is a beautiful city.

Love it! Victoria Street leading down to Grassmarket.

I’m right back at Uni. This was a regular walk for me I lived nearby.

Beautiful photo and words love Charles Dickens

One of my favourite places x

How I yearn for a few bevvies in the Bow Bar, then a meal at Howies!

Beautiful... but it looks like it would be very slippery to walk on, being steep as well!

I'm ready to leave my home and wander so I can appreciate more! πŸ˜€

Once again I had to postpone my trip to Scotland because of the pandemic. πŸ₯²

Lovely picture. Hi from the USA

I feel I am home every time I am in Edinburgh,and I am missing it now very much.

Beautiful Victoria Street Edinburgh.

The guy who was alone with a Strand has gone home

It’s such an atmospheric City. Just sweeps you back in time x

Would love to be walking up that street now 🚢‍β™€οΈπŸšΆ‍♂️

Stunningly atmospheric

Excellent photograph!!

Looks great Scotland .keeping its history.

Interesting piece of history to see

Had a wonderful lunch with "Game Soup", up on the second floor in October 1972!! Then walked to the Castle.

My favorite restaurant in Edinburgh!!!!

It’s a great wee pub.xxx

I used to live right next door to it!!! Absolutely love the Grassmarket!!!πŸ™‹‍β™€οΈπŸ’ƒπŸ˜‡πŸ™πŸ₯°πŸ’‹πŸ’‹πŸ’‹

Oor Wullie is socially distancing.

Bleak House, a good book, all 600+ pages of it.

I have the box set Bleak house.. not sure if it relates

Can't wait to pop through and enjoy a day out with few drinks and good company.

Lynne Webster somewhere to try next time in Edinburgh??

The beer was rubbish years ago,when it was a dryborough,s pub.

Cool

I was there in 2019. Beautiful!

Laura oh, the Beehive ❀

does the best home made cider mmmmmmmmmmm

Been in there many a time. Used to work in Uberior House opposite now a motel I think.

Is the Beehive still there in Grassmarket?

Oh Many a night I stumbled home for here πŸ₯Ί
