The theme of the Gallery over at Sticky Fingers today is Picture Postcard.
I’m not quite sure why I love this shot so much. It really shouldn’t work – I’ve got the fence in focus instead of the castle – but I guess in my mind those spikey black fences are as much a part of Edinburgh’s character as the castle itself. And even when it’s not the focus, the outline of the castle is so distinctive that you couldn’t mistake this for a photo of any other city in the world.
I’ve given it an old-timey look, because I’m a sucker for those rounded corners.
