Day 35: Sunny Days and Ruined Views

By Contemplatingtheclouds @contempclouds

When I took this photo yesterday morning (apart from the surprise in spotting a moment when there was no one on this part of Princes Street) I expected that the sun was going to disappear not too soon after. I’d remembered my sunglasses, brought a salad for lunch and had tentatively pencilled in a stroll for my lunch break – it was clearly going to rain. All those ‘omens’ in my life made precipitation virtually inevitable. But – apparently – I missed a memo somewhere and it turns out that I’m not the center of the universe (who knew?) and thus can have no discernible effect on the weather. After I came to this stark realisation I wandered off to the office and the sun shone all day.

I think this photo pretty much represents Edinburgh in most people’s eyes at the moment: Sun, blue skies, the Castle and *insert expletives here* tram works. And the news I heard today – when they reopen Princes Street for the festival they’re closing George Street (or at least part of it) so it can be used for alfresco dining. Oh joy.

Edinburgh, trams, Edinburgh Castle, Sun, Spring
