Looking At Edinburgh

A Leith cameo

Filed under: photos, reflections, windows, windows — Tags: , , , — EdinburghEye @ 8:36 am

Like most pubs in Leith, the Cameo Bar has lots of beer, lots of meaty/fishy pub grub, but if you’re vegetarian, better come at the weekend for breakfast. Which they serve at lunchtime.

This photo is available on Redbubble: In the Cameo window.

(No one ever seemed to click on the Google Map tags, so I’m not going to do them any more.)

Fleur’s Deli Reflects

Fleur's Deli

Fleur’s Deli is one of the many breakfast-and-lunch places around this area: sells bread, soup, sandwiches, and other essentials. Also good coffee. This morning I saw the windows reflecting the buildings on the other side of the Shore, with such clarity it seemed hard to believe they were not mirrored.

I took this photo here. It’s available on Redbubble: Fleur’s Deli Reflecting.

Suruchi Too in a window

Filed under: buildings, reflections, windows — Tags: , , , — EdinburghEye @ 6:34 am

On Constitution Street, across the street and a little bit down the road from the Suruchi Too, there is an odd building with mirrored windows and a metal framework hanging in front of the building.

The Suruchi Too is one of those oddities: it’s a spinoff restaurant from the more famous Surichi on Nicholson Street, and at lunchtimes it’s usually virtually empty and in the evenings it’s never busy. But, it stays open, year after year. (Perhaps they use it to train their waitstaff. The service in the Suruchi Too is never as good as the food.)

I took this photo here. It’s available on Redbubble: Suruchi Too in a window.

Reflecting on the 22 bus

Filed under: photos, reflections, vehicles, windows — Tags: , , , , , , — EdinburghEye @ 9:31 am

I took this photo here. It’s available on Redbubble: In a bus window.

The 22 bus is a zippy little beast that runs from South Gyle on one side of the city to Ocean Terminal on the other. 22 and N22, the night bus, run 24/7, fast and frequent. Here near the end of its run the window holds the reflection of the houses across the river, the flecks of rain, the faces of passengers within, and even the photographer.
