Hanover Street

Location

The pedestrians here are heading along Princes Street and crossing Hanover Street.

This view looks up Hanover Street towards the statue of George IV at the Hanover Street / George Street junction.

This photograph was taken from the steps of the Royal Scottish Academy in Princes Street.

Long Exposure

The photograph above was taken with an exposure of 1/8 second - just about long enough to convert several of the pedestrians to 'one-legged figures' as one leg remained on the ground and the other swung through the air during the exposure.

Photograph

Short Exposure

Compare the photograph above with  the photo below taken with an exposure of 1/100 second, just about short enough to freeze the motion of the pedestrians.  Please click the thumbnail image below to enlarge it.
