A slightly longer one than usual as we’ve not been managing to post as much recently. This week has seen quite a lot of haar, the Scottish word for sea fog, that drifts in over the city from the Firth of Forth. I’ll resist lame Firth / Forth / Fifth humour for now, but can’t guarantee that it won’t happen in future, so be careful when reading our upcoming posts.
There was a bit of sun, some rain, the haar I mentioned and I took the tram a couple of times. The French were here for a wee bit and then went home again. We won again at Rugby and Lynn got an image of some less than overjoyed looking supporters. I have no further comment to make on the Edinburgh trams, as I don’t want to trigger a comment avalanche of people’s opinions, so I’ll just say that they do provide some nice photo opportunities.
Oh, and a reminder that we’re up and running on Facebook, in addition to our website, so why not come and say hello, be nice to meet you…
I have just switched from a Nikon (D3200) to a Fujifilm (XE-2) camera and now getting used to new buttons and dials. As we had some rain, I was doing soggy testing (me, not the camera), at least with the benefit of some nice reflective surfaces. The Fuji is much smaller and lighter than the Nikon, but, so far, I’m impressed with the quality of the images and, as previously posted, the low light capabilities.
This is St Andrews Square in central Edinburgh, looking across the tram tracks, towards the Harvey Nichols shop.
And looking down the throat of an incoming tram.
And finally, looking across shiny and reflective bike stands towards the ongoing demolition.
