Yesterday I received a new “expert” compact camera – the Canon G7 X. I felt it needed a decent test so took it to Edinburgh to view a few exhibitions with a friend. The results were pleasing: not as good as my professional DSLRs and lenses costing several times as much, of course, yet good optical quality with punchy colours where the lighting was useful and overall enjoyable handling. I’ll probably write a review of it in a few weeks once I’m fully used to it.
The flow of the day, and therefore the photos below, went as follows:
I love whisky, so this sign was crying out to be photographed.
The Dean Village architecture is both wonderful and bizarre in equal measure.
The Dean Gallery (sadly re-branded as the Scottish Gallery of Modern Art 2) where the M. C. Escher exhibition is.
A rather sad, unnecessary and frankly outdated sign prohibiting photography. Keep an eye on this one, I’ve been thinking about it for a while now.
Stairwell in the Dean Gallery.
Exhibition by kennardphillipps at Stills, a dedicated photography gallery (you should visit).
Blackwell’s bookshop… *8* full height bookcases filled with philosophy! Why have I never found this treasure before today?
The Meadows on a pleasant and rather quiet evening.
Food and drink in Cafe Rouge. I may have been too hungry to photograph the food when it arrived.
A developing sunset from the train window as I was nearing my local station.
