Some street shots from the weekend jaunt to the capital. The first one(the symmetrical stairs) I originally processed in colour but changed my mind tonight and decided to redo it in black and white. I think the street stuff looks better in monochrome although the chap in the yellow trousers does stand out in that shot. Then again Ted Grant once said “When you photograph people in color, you photograph their clothes. But when you photograph people in Black and white, you photograph their souls!” The girl at number 369 was also in yellow but we’re looking at her soul now, well framed I think but slightly out of focus…..damn!
As the good lady is working in Edinburgh just now I may venture back for another days shooting unfortunately the cost of boarding trains is a bit prohibitive especially when you may have to stand for the entire journey!

Just noticed the cost of a fish supper six quid!!!! You’d think fish were scarce at that price. For viewers not from Scotland a fish supper is fish and chips, anything from a fish and chip shop that comes with chips is called a supper. That’s a wee lesson for anyone coming to Edinburgh to research their ancestry. Enjoy!
