Monochrome Madness 2-22 Bridges

Greetings from Beautiful Edinburgh!! A jewel in the heather, she herself  is home to the ancient  “Honours” of Scotland,  The Military tattoo, Robbie burns, the Fringe Fest and Greyfriar’s Bobby to name just a few

This was a  scheduled post for Leanne Coles’ Monochrome Madnesses – It was one of BC’s  wooden bridges!!.. but I found and continue to find wonderful “crossings” here – I love the poetry and symbolism they inspire!

I don’t have my proper signature but I have an editing program I was able to download before leaving.  Bridges is the theme for this week so I made “Leith” the feature.  Will pop in from time to time though notebook is very slow.  Hope you all enjoy August and keep taking lots of pictures!! It’s something you can’t avoid here!! Namaste and Slainte!!

    Wow! Take me to the bridge, that I may meditate upon the waters, upon the song of the fish and the sweet, elegant dance that they give to the gods.

        No problem. I have been mostly absent myself. Some new projects I am undertaking. I’m glad you’re back. Always glad to see you around, Cybele.

  3. Dreamy bridges. Say, on a completely separate note, I bet you could answer this for me. Does the word Duggan mean black in Irish/Celtic/Gaelic? I’m feeding a black kitty outside that I’m thinking of naming him that if that’s what it means! 😀

    1. Linda, I believe Duggan comes from the word Dubh ( pronounced Doov) which is black and is a surname Duggan would be a cute name!

  5. All three bridges are beautiful and your images really highlight that.

    I’ve been thinking about adding an IR filter to see how I like it, before converting an older camera to IR.

    You sound so happy! Hope the whole trip is amazing. I’m looking forward to seeing more from Scotland!

    Be well!

  12. Hello Cybele. If I shout loud enough, I wonder if my voice will carry up to Edinburgh. First I must return those northerly winds to where they came from. It’s probably warmer up North than down South just now! Hope you are keeping well and enjoying your trip, including all the photo opportunities.
