Aspects of my Edinburgh

My Edinburgh may be a little different from other people's Edinburgh...

About two or three years ago, a fire started on the Cowgate. It gutted the buildings, and left behind just walls. It's been vacant and uncared for ever since.

Does it count as graffiti if you write it on a bit of paper and then stick it on something?

This is a key hanger thingy with a mounted Westie head on it.
I... don't know what to say.

Nice framing, but hurried.

Looking up at the crane gives me vertigo.

Now these are sown, if anyone attacks the Scottish Parliament, they shall be driven off by skeletal warriors.

Ooh, the building with the rounded corners is so cool looking. I would love to live there.

The concrete barriers just look silly. I like the skeletal warriors connection though.

I believe the building is a language school, sadly. Mind you, that doesn't stop me wanting to live there.

I love looking down at the Cowgate site from the bus, and that mounted Westie is just plain wrong!

Choo-choo just IS Boo, there is clearly no need for further explanation there. The same as the Earth, just, is?


I would say stop me before I talk bollocks, but I think you'd have to travel far back in time for that!

I think it says "choo choo 15", an obvious refrence to the famous train-robbing gang, who were caught and sentanced to a life of cleaning graffiti of of walls.
