social media

i have my reasons why i´m NOT at facebook or twitter. and if you pin my work on pinterest, please make sure to link it back to me by taking the button on my side: that will bring you to my board with all my art-links. thanks for respecting that.

i consider my blog to be my "artistic diary" - so i can recap what i made and which influences i got (exhibitions etc).

currently i try to publish frequently once in a week (tuesdays mostly)

People with a Google+ account: please leave a direct blog link, otherwise i can´t visit you.

edinburgh

showing some of my edinburgh photos today...

first thing: there are a lot of festivals going on in august in edinburgh, it is said to be THE festival town of the world at this time
famous are the military tattoo, the book festival, and of course the fringe, which includes a lot of street artists

st giles cathedral
canongate kirk cemetery
 calton hill
right beside the parliament and located in holyrood park: arthur´s seat;
you can climb it for a good view over the city and beyond.
tolbooth
("town house": usually provided a council meeting chamber, a court house and a jail)
 and if it was too windy or rainy, we always found a cozy tea room:)
dean village:
a village amidst the town, idyllic old charm
it leads to the dean gardens at the water of leith,
where in earlier centuries up to 11 water mills were grinding the wheat for the people´s bread
if you love second hand shopping, you are right in the quarter of stockbridge:
many charity sellers of old bracelets, books, clothes etc for a bargain.
delicious cakes and scones in the royal botanical garden,
and of course plants, too;)
old town
assembly hall and ramsey garden
the royal yacht britannia...
the sunny veranda at the upper deck; and if the royals were bored, they played "wombat-tennis"... here the poor guy on the ventilator
another nice quarter: leith
