anonymouseth
hi all,

the guess where edinburgh group on flickr recently got a request from the edinburgh room at the city library to help identify the locations in some old photos. can you help out ?

the set of photos can be seen here:

...and they've also been added to the guess where edinburgh pool.

if you fancy taking part in an edinburgh-based photographic guessing game, join the group and get guessing and/or submitting pix. the current crop of unguessed pix can be seen here...

Edinburgh sandstone [08 Oct 2009|01:28am]

baralier
Hullo all!

I'm wondering if there might be some people out there who could help me with a favour?

I'm currently part of a group building a 3D city in the virtual world of Second Life. The theme we're working on is steampunk. For me this idea has always conjured up visions of Edinburgh's Old Town with that distinctive yellowie sandstone that so many of the buildings are made from.

I've been looking through the pictures here and there are some great ones but nothing that really helps me out. What I'm trying to get hold of is a nice head on picture of a stone wall or something of the old Close walls made from the yellowie sandstone blocks that I can use as a base texture to then add windows or doors or other elements as needed to the end result. I've seen some pictures of the Telfer Wall that make me think it might be good but nearly all of them show the wall trailing into the distance, rather than a nice shot of the stonework itself. Some of the pictures of Advocate's Close look like they might fit the bill but it's hard to tell.

If anyone might be willing to help out or wants to post links to stuff they think might be what I'm looking for in the replies I'd love to hear from you.

Thanks for reading.

Edinburgh in April [08 May 2009|12:13pm]

rhythmaning
I spent my last Sunday in Edinburgh taking photographs; I was walking down to drink whisky in Leith and it was a gorgeous day. I only had my pocket camera with me, since I hadn't anticipated taking photographs, but it was so beautiful I couldn't help it. I took a lot.

Rosslyn Chapel [25 Apr 2009|05:50pm]

rhythmaning
OK, I lied - this wasn't my last entry, and neither will this one be - I have a few more pictures to post...

Whilst I was wandering around Rosslyn Chapel taking photographs of Colin Steele and Dave Milligan, I mentioned to the custodian of the chapel that I often tp take pictures in the chapel – last time, I followed the rules and kept outside. He said that I should feel free to take any pictures I wanted; I took him at his word.

(Someone later told me that the reason photography is banned from the chapel is not, as I suggested, because they want to sell more Cds, books and postcards, but rather because they are being sued by a tourist who was startled by someone taking flash pictures and tripped.)

Rosslyn Chapel is full of amazing and somewhat mysterious carvings; rumour has it that it was built by the Knights Templar and is full of masonic secrets (hence it features in “The Da Vinci Code”); it is certainly full of masonic imagery. Some of the carvings allegedly refer to journey's made by monks to America before Columbus got there; others tell the tale one of the chapel's patrons,Sir Henry St Clair, 7th Baron of Rosslyn, as he took Robert the Bruce's heart on a pilgrimage to Jerusalem 9after Robert's death; obviously...).

Some of the most famous stories involve the intricately carved Apprentice Pillar - carved in the Master Mason's absence by an apprentice, the mason was so incenced that he killed the apprentice; other carvings show the mason falling from the tower in punishment.

Here are some of the photographs I took in this remarkable, fascinating, medieval building.

Landform [11 Apr 2009|06:25pm]

rhythmaning
Back in February, when we had a week of hard frosts and then several days of snow, I repeatedly visited the Scottish Gallery of Modern Art - to see the patterns the weather had made of Landform, the large earthworks by Charles Jencks in front of the gallery. I love that sculpture - it is a wonderful shape.

I also walked through the Dean graveyard to get there.

(I have just moved to London, so this may be my last post to this community; or maybe not! Anyhow, thanks for sharing your photographs over the last five years.)

I'm really sorry everyone, if it isn't too much of a bother would you mind trying it again? Unfortunately I can't preview this to check.

Hello there! [26 Mar 2009|01:56pm]

[ mood | excited ]

My name is Siobhan and I'm kind of taking over edinburgh_pics. I'd love to see this community more active, so before starting up anything new I need to gather some info. I've got some ideas but I'm really unsure if they're viable so I turn to you!

This is a poll which will hopefully point me in the right direction and let me know what you are all thinking.

I would be very grateful if you would fill it out. And I would love any extra feedback/suggestions/comments about anything to do with edinburgh_pics.


Thank you!

Edit: I'm really sorry I didn't realise the first poll didn't work, it's now in the post above!
