A few shots from a recent visit we made to the St. James Centre and the ‘Twisty Bridge’, in the re-development area and facing likely demolition.

  1. As always, I love how your shots reveal Edinburgh and its many sites (and sights) I’m so familiar with in such a revealing way. The irony w/the St. James Centre shots is that as hideous as those structures are, when shot in isolated detail they don’t look half bad. Mind, I’d rather they be in Cumbernauld than in Edinburgh.

    1. Thanks Wayne. Yes, the St James Centre is photogenic in parts for brutalist detail, but rubbish as a whole. I’d hope that the ‘Twisty Bridge’ would be saved somehow.
