Photography Walk in Edinburgh, Scotland 

My visit to Edinburgh in Scotland and the entire Scottish tour made me fall in love with the country, people, their way of life, the culture, food, beer, hairy coo, the Highlands and many more.

I am not a pious person or not in support of any religion, neither am I an atheist. But, I love the architecture and admire the intellect that goes behind constructing such amazing buildings.

I like Flags i.e. the colours, what they represent, et cetera. I have collected a few flags from countries I visited and liked a lot.

I love quiet alleys, streets and corners. This one was truly an amazing one. I had a view of the mountains, the reflection fell on the car’s top, and the narrow passage just looked beautiful.

I bumped into this museum in Edinburgh and came across beautiful photos, artefacts and vintage things used years and centuries ago.

I loved this alley so much that I captured it in monochrome to give the photograph and moment a vintage feeling.

I loved this alley with steps and human elements so captured it in monochrome to give the photograph and moment a vintage perspective.

Game of Bowls | Edinburgh | Scotland Holiday | Travel Photography | PritishSocial
Introducing “Bowls”. Bowls or lawn bowls is a sport in which the objective is to roll biased balls so that they stop close to a smaller ball called a “jack” or “kitty”. It is played on a bowling green which may be flat (for “flat-green bowls”) or convex or uneven (for “crown green bowls”). It is normally played outdoors (although there are many indoor venues) and the outdoor surface is either natural grass, artificial turf, or cotula (in New Zealand).

I love British High Tea. Here is a depiction of High Tea few years ago. I love scones and biscuits which are usually included in a High Tea

Hume Statue | Photography Walk | Scotland Holiday | Travel | PritishSocial
This modern bronze statue on a Clashach sandstone plinth depicts David Hume, the Scottish Enlightenment philosopher. The one-and-a-half times life size statue was completed by sculptor Alexander ‘Sandy’ Stoddart in 1995. David Hume was a Scottish philosopher, historian, economist, and essayist, who is best known today for his highly influential system of radical philosophical empiricism, skepticism, and naturalism.

I love patterns wherever they are. When I see patterns, I stop by to click photos and capture the moments. Aren’t they beautiful?

Above Picture: The Scott Monument is a Victorian Gothic monument to Scottish author Sir Walter Scott. It is the largest monument to a writer in the world. It stands in Princes Street Gardens in Edinburgh, opposite the Jenners department store on Princes Street and near to Edinburgh Waverley Railway Station, which is named after Scott’s Waverley novels. The tower is 200 feet 6 inches (61.11 m) high, and has a series of viewing platforms reached by a series of narrow spiral staircases giving panoramic views of central Edinburgh and its surroundings. The highest platform is reached by a total of 287 steps.

Above Picture: NELSON MONUMENT. One of Edinburgh’s odder things, designed in 1807 by Robert Burn, over 30m high, of five stages, with a hatched frieze and a corbelled and battlemented parapet. Within this a sixth stage, similarly detailed, supports cross-trees and a time ball (giving a visual sign at noon to ships in the Forth). Base enclosed in a five-sided structure added in 1814-16 by Thomas Bonnar to Burn’s design, castellated in the Adam style, with a boldly carved relief of the San Josef over the entrance.
