A puddle on Tower Street

I saw Fishers and their hopeful street planter reflected in a puddle on Tower Street: and behind it all the guddle of the street being dug up. For some reason.

“This is our chance to answer that call. This is our moment. This is our time, to put our people back to work and open doors of opportunity for our kids; to restore prosperity and promote the cause of peace; to reclaim the American Dream and reaffirm that fundamental truth, that out of many, we are one; that while we breathe, we hope, and where we are met with cynicism, and doubt, and those who tell us that we can’t, we will respond with that timeless creed that sums up the spirit of a people: Yes We Can.” – Barack Obama, 44th President of the United States of America

From the Mound at sunset

on Bank Street, looking down into the New Town

The New Town rising at the foot of the Mound: the wet road reflects back the sunset light.

Walking into the light

People walking down the Mound into the sunset

“Where Princes Street Gardens are now, the Nor’ Loch was ‘a receptacle of many sewers, and seemingly of the worried cats, drowned dogs, and blackguardism of the city’. Initially stones and planks were laid across its swampland by a tailor with a shop in the Old Town and clients in the New. This gave rise to the name Geordie Boyd’s Mud Brig. In time the ‘Brig’ was filled in by rubble from the excavation works – some two million cartloads tipped out by contractors and private citizens – finally forming a great earthen mound, known now simply as The Mound.” – Stories in Stone
