Daily Photo – School of Divinity
Here’s the School of Divinity, part of Edinburgh University. One of the coolest things about Edinburgh was that almost every side street I took, or archway I wandered under, opened up into some cool, medieval like scene such as this one. That guy over on the left… John Knox, he led quite the life!
Daily Photo – Exploring The Old Town
Exploring the Old Town area of Edinburgh in the late summer evening. I had a bunch of fun wandering around here, a lot of the time recording vlogs with my 360 camera, for release soon. That building you see over on the left is St Giles Cathedral on the Royal Mile. It’s from the 14th Century or something around that time… old town indeed!
Daily Photo – Pastry Decisions
Even though I spent more time in Glasgow, I got most of my best city photos in Edinburgh! I’m not saying Glasgow is not as scenic… I’m just saying, well, yes that is exactly what I am saying. But, I obviously love Glasgow. I’ve now made EIGHT experimental videos there that are being edited together… if you watch my silly Instagram stories, then you have heard me talk in Dark Riddles about them. It’s a somewhat unusual idea I had… and I’m not sure everyone will “get it” – but I think the right people will, and more will over time. They’re not for everyone, but, hey, what is? I’ve also made a few of these videos in Edinburgh and other places in Scotland.
I took this photo in Edinburgh while doing my video thang there… this is the train station that backs onto the “Old Town” that has all the classic gothic buildings and olde-world charm and amazing streets that I love getting lost in… and then I find a pastry shop, make some amazing pastry decisions, and eat said pastries while continuing my wanderings with my camera and listening to music… Really love Scotland!
Ahhh yes, the amazing Edinburgh castle! This is the spot I’ve always wanted to visit in Scotland… well, there are MANY places I was excited to visit. I’m pretty well-traveled, but Scotland has always evaded me! You evaded me no more, you awesome country, you!
Now, I’ve been posting some extremely ridiculous and probably inappropriate and mildly offensive videos to my Instagram stories and assembling the funniest ones atop my profile in “Funny Scotland,” should you want to be a fly on the wall of some of these adventures. I’m not afraid to post offensive stuff. People gotta develop thick skins nowadays, hey?
