If I wait to take pictures so that I only capture the exciting, the memorable, the worth-looking-at, then I will never take any at all. Life is, after all, more mundane than exciting; more ordinary than extraordinary; more to be savoured moment-by-moment than endured for the next great excitement. And so I post here both mundane and memorable, as they come my way.

Edinburgh

Edinburgh Castle

The Scottish coat-of-arms and motto: "Nemo me impune lacessit"

One of many bagpipe players-- this one was better looking than most.

This sign is tacked onto every intersection, in case the tourists forgot they were on the Royal Mile.

Outside the Scottish Parliament.

Behind the Scottish Parliament. This is apparently a very nice hill walk, but we were pressed for time.

The debating chamber inside Parliament.

You went inside Parliament? Cool..

There used to be (maybe still is) a teacher here who played the bagpipes for us sometimes. It was great fun.
