More signage and street-clutter, and some churches

A few more photos which I took for an assignment for my HND Photography course, illustrating the ugly proliferation of traffic signage in Edinburgh.


A mass of traffic lights and signage at the Greenside Roundabout, Leith Walk, Edinburgh, circa March 2004. The sharp-eyed may notice a statue of a very famous fictional detective, whose creator lived nearby.

A thoroughly-graffitid and stickered 'no entry' sign at Little King Street, Edinburgh, circa March 2004.

A very common sight in Edinburgh: a long queue of stationary buses at a bus stop. In this case, no fewer than eight vehicles were queuing at the westbound Scott Monument stop in Princes Street. The passengers must have been raging! Photograph taken circa March 2004.


The gothic door and windows in the west elevation of Morningside Parish Church, Edinburgh, circa March 2004.
