97 - GREYFRIAR'S BOBBY STATUE, EDINBURGH - 01 (D.E. 2010) by 


On my recent trip to Edinburgh (where I met Tom Gomez of Redbubble) I decided to take some night-time shots of Greyfriar’s Bobby. If you’d like to see Bobby in the daylight and also read a lovely account of his little life, then click here to view Tom Gomez’s photo and description.

I used my trusty little Canon Powershot A550. One day I will buy an SLR … but until then I am happy with my pocket camera.

    Beautiful shot of this grand wee statue, Dave. I remember rubbing his head when I saw it. A wonderful story of a dog’s unfailing loyalty.
