Artist's Description

Out for a pleasant days shooting on a rather grey winters day on 7th February 2010 with some other RB members in Edinburgh, Scotland.

Looking up the High Street, part of the Royal Mile, on the right under the flags (3 Saltires and a Union Jack) is the entrance to the courtyard of Edinburgh City Chambers.

Designed by John Adams in 1753, the building stand on the site of the Lord Provost of Edinburgh’s mansion (the place where Mary Queen of Scots spend her last night in Edinburgh). The chambers are built around a central piazza with a statue of Alexander the Great training his horse, Bucephalus, in the centre. Originally they were built for the use of the merchants of the city, however these business men preferred to use public houses and the Royal Mile itself for doing business, so the chambers were bought by the Council in 1811.

Across the road (on the left) is a statue of Adam Smith and standing beside it are three of the party of redbubblers who provided excellent company on the day. In the grey jacket is Lynne Morris, next to her is Peter Lusby Taylor and next to Peter is Robin Brown
