All the shite o' the day

A series of photos I took of tacky Scottish souvenir shops and their wares on 10th September, 2005, for an assignment for my HND Photography course. Although there was no shortage of made-in-Hong-Kong dross to be found then, shops selling tartan garbage of this sort have multiplied during the intervening years and now appear to occupy every empty shop in the centre of Edinburgh, the moment it becomes vacant.

Just what is it that draws the tourists to Edinburgh in their thousands? Rubbish-filled fountain in Hunter Square, 10th September, 2005.
