Edinburgh 5 – Streets

This is where my memory will really be tested, but I’ll always remember the character of Edinburgh’s streets – even if I can’t pin a name to every one of them. The photographs below are just a few examples.

I think that I took this photo where West Bow leads to Victoria Street. Wherever it was, I loved the multi-coloured building fronts.

In this next shot, it’s possible that the street from where I’m looking back has become Victoria Street.

Now, was the above shot in Lawnmarket or JohnstonTerrace? I think that it was Lawnmarket.

I certainly can’t remember the name of this garden. I didn’t know it even at the time but felt that it may have belonged to an embassy or consulate.

I know where I was here – In Princes Street – and you can just see the National Monument on Calton Hill peeping up in the background.

My name is Gerald Murphy. I am a retired local government officer. At the time of my retirement I was an IT manager and had associated responsibilities for training. I had previously been involved, in various organisations, with aspects of industrial training and management development. My main hobby is photography and, until 2016, hillwalking in Snowdonia. Sciatica has put an end to mountain walks and, as a carer for my wife, opportunities for photography excursions are now more limited. Since July 2022, I have started using this site as a photobook.
