I am in Edinburgh for the weekend working, this will be the first time I’ve been alone in Edinburgh for coming on 30 years.
I did the tourist walk; along the West End, up Lothian Road, through the Meadows down South Bridges, the Royal Mile up to the Castle and then back to the hotel.
Strange emotions, strange seeing the place again after so many years of popping up for family visits without really visiting the city.
The walk gave me ideas for another series of photographs, but these are Edinburgh centric and will take a while to compose and collect.
‘Sins of the Father’ first two notes are places I saw my dad coming out of:
the Western Bar has been there forever and doesn’t seem to have changed much, but the Bingo Hall used to be Edinburgh’s ‘adult’ cinema.
This is a start and how much of this I go into is still to be decided.
