A street in Edinburgh, ScotlandPhoto by: c.b.w 2005

There is something about cobbled streets that speaks to me. Perhaps it is the knowing that thousands and thousands of feet, of lives, have trod thereon.
That’s what always fascinates me about those old streets. They have a long memory. :-)
I love the green and red building fronts popping out from the sepia!
That’s definitely one of my favorite elements of this photograph! :-)
Love the poem and the photo and how they both have that patina feel.
Thanks! :-) I’ve had this photograph waiting on the bench for a while. I’m glad my muse finally found the words to go along with this street!
Despite the modern vehicles, this does have an air of medieval to it. Love it. The poem fits it perfectly.
All Edinburgh had the same feeling. Like many places in Europe, it seems frozen in time with layers of modernity dancing on top. :-)
Beautiful – the words and photo. Scotland is definitely on my bucket list!
It’s such a beautiful place, both city and countryside. Well worth a trip across the Atlantic! :-)
That’s Cockburn Street (pronounced ‘Coburn’).
Thank you!! It’s been so long since I’ve been there I didn’t know where to start on a map! :-)
it’s like going back in time! I love this!
Pretty :) words and picture
I imagine that this street looked almost the same a hundred years ago. Lovely photo and poem.
We could probably overlap photographs of both times and there would be little or no change. I love that about Europe. :-)
That is a street I would love to explore, following in the footsteps of some long-lost ancestor! :)
I walked along this curve at sunset and it literally felt like history was bursting from every nook and cranny. :-)
