Street Scenes

I've been photographing streets around Edinburgh, for the past few years.  In my recent photos, I have started to include more people, signs and action in the streets, wherever possible.

So I was pleased to come across this scene.

In the Foreground

One of the staff from Howie's Restaurant offers samples from the restaurant to passers-by.  Howie's Restaurant is behind the girl with the tray, just out of the picture on the left.

In the Background

Mike Pringle, MSP (Member of the Scottish Parliament) has set up his table and chair at the corner of Montpelier Park and Merchiston Place at Merchiston, and is in discussion in front of  his table.  Mike Pringle is the man in the salmon coloured shirt (on the left in the large group).

Here is another photograph, also taken on May 10, 2008 from about the same position:
