I will shortly be saying goodbye to Edinburgh! I came here for college (Edinburgh College of Art) and remained here for 14 years-ish. Its a beautiful city but its time to find a new home. I’ve been inspired by Edinburgh massively, its given me a love of cities, and the colour grey! I have a couple of weeks left so have found myself looking over photos from the last few years that have been an inspiration. The textures, walls with disappearing old ads painted on them many years ago and the architecture . . .
This building is on my walk to the studio, and is beautiful, but I loved it when the walkway towards it was adorned briefly with yellow scaffolding. Scaffolding is like jewellery being worn by the building, and reminds me of constructing jewellery, work in progress!
On a lovely lane towards Stockbridge
Love the work that has gone into this perfectly gold sign in St Stephen Street
Another advert on both sides of a doorway at the end of Chambers Street, Straw and Felt Hatters
Love this building, off Nicholson Street
Nice wall! Could easily be a painting or tapestry
An Antony Gormley at the entrance to the Gallery of Modern Art. There are a series of these but have only managed to see about half of them
Foxy get off the roof! Its a 2D metal cut out on the top of a building off Broughton Street
Up in Leith, I love old tatty shop fronts, really honest looking and a proper fishmongers I reckon
On Leith Walk, lovely disappearing tailors sign
Stencil grafitti ... this was in Bruntsfield and there's another to come soon ...
Stick No Bills ... always thought of this as being on posters and more of a modern thing
Have no idea what kind of brances, the shop itself no longer exists
Beautiful wall ... looks like a tapestry
Another sign on the Royal Mile with a lovely hand, there's another hand sign somewhere here that I've been searching for...
Would love to see what these sections where advertising, just for a minute, then let them to go back to this
This entrance on the Royal Mile is very collage-y and stitch-ery dont you think!
I dont think this is there anymore, it was on Victoria Street
Gorgeous layers of blue and gold writing either side of a door on the Bridges
