edinburgh in july

August 5, 2011























. . . . . . . . . . .

i’ve been to edinburgh in autumn, winter, and now the summer. it feels different each time i visit. this past weekend, we hiked to the top of arthur’s seat on sunday for an incredible view.

next week, i’ll show you more of the photos i shot for starbucks as part of a portfolio update. plus a few other things – i can’t wait.

also, if you have 6 1/2 minutes, you should watch this short film.  amazing visuals & vibe, in black & white.

have a great weekend.

    My husband and I honeymooned in Scotland, and we loved Edinburgh. Hiking up Arthur’s Seat was one of my favorite parts of the trip. As always, gorgeous pictures!

    Having a whole seven to spare, I thought I’d pass on some belated congratulations on the Coffee House gig AND dip in to the short film. Only surprise is no one had tapped in earlier. My sincere best on that and whatever might follow. Continue to look forward to updates – for me your photos are like going on the briefest of really nice holidays…

    I was in Edinburgh back in April and also hiked up Arthur’s Seat — the fun part is the journey up and seeing these pictures brought back some great memories. (It looks like it was a lot nicer in July!) And was that Holyrood Palace?

    I love how the wine glass looks like it’s levitating! Gorgeous photos!

    Oh, this makes me sorry that I chose to go to Dublin instead of Edinburgh! What a nice series you posted! I especially love the second and third as well as that of the dog.

    Is that a Hudson’s Bay Blanket I spy laying over the couch? It’s amazing how those end up all over the world. :) I hope you have a fantastic weekend!

    Wonderful photos as always Brian. Edinburgh looks fantastic this time of year. Also major congrats on the Starbucks gig. That really is a reason to celebrate. I’m positive they got the right guy to do the photos

    Your photographs are gorgeous.
    This series reminds me of a summer trip to Edinburgh with my family, when I was a teenager. I had packed for warm temperatures, and I had to buy a sweatshirt in Edinburgh to protect against cool gusts of wind!
    I just saw The Illusionist, done by the guys who made The Triplets of Belleville. Have you already seen it? It’s set mostly in Edinburgh, and I thought it was beautifully done.
