Interesting People assignment

A series of photos I took in Cockburn Street, Edinburgh, of random passers-by for a college assignment. I thought Cockburn Street would be a good place to conduct this exercise as it had been very much a bohemian area in the 1970s and 1980s, with several record shops and punk and hippy clothing boutiques, but by 2005, it was no longer a point of congregation for rebellious youth and had become an ordinary street much like any other, and I didn't feel my efforts had been very successful. However, in retrospect, I should have been more resolute and continued with the project. It could have resulted in some interesting photos; a snapshot in time.
