impressions

I've probably said this before, but the light in this city is astounding. I don't know if it's the time of year, the latitude, the atmospheric conditions, the profusion of limestone buildings, or a combination of all these things, but the light does things here that I've never seen anywhere else. Except possibly in Impressionist paintings.

holy lens flare, batman

Sometimes the days are so gray and rainy and awful; when the sky is clear and the sun is shining, I can't stop myself from going out to wander around in it. One good thing about being unemployed is the freedom to do that, I guess. These photos are from a few days ago, but they don't quite capture the whole gloriousness of the day.

Me and my shadow

Still, they come close enough for my memory to fill in the rest.

  1. Just gorgeous, and I'm sure these photos don't do reality justice.

  2. on a good day, scotland is the most beautiful place i've ever seen. you do have to grab your moments when they come, though. i've started taking walks during lunch break on sunnier days, just because i don't know when the next sunny spell will come!

    i don't know if you're been to blackford hill/braid hill yet, but on a nice day the view is astounding.
