I photographed this with my iPhone using the panorama app that is built in to the Apple camera. I took the photo because I like the way the streets come together at that point. Broughton Street is on a gentle slope going downhill from foreground to background. It looks steeper in real life.
Edinburgh is on the south bank of the river Forth, and beginning in the seventeen hundreds developers started to build along the bank that faces north towards the river. Broughton street is pretty much as the eastern end of that development and I like the area because it kind of falls off the edge and the ups and downs are at their most interesting.
By the way, I reduced the photo from its native size down to a useable size using the Reduce app on my phone and I posted it into this post on my phone and saved the draft.
Now I am on my computer adding the text.
I didn’t publish from my phone because I wanted to see how the image turned out looking at it from a bigger screen before I published.
Well, it looks fine. Click on the image to see a larger version.
