What is it with traffic cones and statues? ah dinnae ken!
I blame Glasgow they started it with their Wellington Statue. 😉 (we love ya, honest)
But i’ve never understood the Scottish mentality of dunking traffic cones atop of statues, I know it’s also done around the rUK, but how about other European places, or are we just daft?
A few weeks ago I noticed David Hume had a new hat, well it was raining.

I love the reflection on lights reflecting off the wet sand.
taken with a iPhone, I am always impressed the quality of photo from these devices.
some, many are actually better than my ‘real’ camera, not yet a DSLR, but I’ll upgrade soon.
Just wish I was more interested way back, as I think my composition/quality has improved
looking back through old photos, I always say/think I could now do so much better.
This was taken ~two weeks ago, Edinburgh Castle With Thistle in the foreground

St Cuthbert’s kirkyard and Edinburgh Castle
Edinburgh has many Gothic and spooky locations, here is a shot of Edinburgh Castle taken from St Cuthbert’s Kirkyard. (with a sepia tone added). St. Cuthbert’s Kirk is thought to be one the oldest site of worship in Edinburgh.
The graveyard of the ‘Kirk below the Castle’ is an intrinsic part of the story of Christianity in Scotland from the Dark Ages onwards, and its establishment during the 8th century predates the first records. Despite its busy city centre location, the site feels secluded and secret.
