There are parts of the city that have a timeless quality, in this case the top of Candlemaker Row at the junction with George IVth Bridge. The rounded building behind Greyfriars Bobby was a bookshop for a long time, before becoming the current Pizza / Kebab place, and is a curious design. I happened along when there no people around and nobody taking a selfie of themselves with the wee dug.

  1. How evocative…. Even the most famous find themselves alone. I’ve never noticed that street lamp. It’s adds to the poignancy of this wonderful image.
