Scotland, 2002.

Some photos from our trip to Scotland in 2002. We stayed at Borthwick Castle, just outside of Edinburgh. The quality of the daylight in Scotland was unreal; the sky was hazy and washed out, but it was bright and damp enough to make colors appear super-saturated in contrast to the grays. These are some of the last photos I took with a film camera. I don’t do so well with digital.

Evan has to work from home late tonight (on his birthday!) on a site launch, and I am staying up late out of sympathy (and because I am full of coffee and carrot cheesecake from Junior’s and can’t sleep). Bruno and I are camped out on the sofa watching a ridiculously bad movie on the Lifetime channel.

    Oh, I’d love to go to Scotland some day. It isn’t even that far away for me, but I’ve never been there yet. Have you ever seen this house? http://www.papastour.com/holiday-cottage.php
    I’d love to stay there some day!

    Your photos are very beautiful. Especially the second one, that has an almost magical feel over it!

    Oh, I have to get there someday! My husband has close relatives over there… hopefully someday (after the house is finished, probably) we will have the money for the plane ticket!

    I’m sorry, nothing beats “Co-Ed Call Girl” with Tori Spelling for Lifetime Movies, except “Mother May I Sleep
    With Danger?”, also with Tori Spelling. Your photos are beautiful by the way.

    What a gorgeous set of photies (and what a nice surprise to see you blogging about Scotland) 🙂

    Beautiful pictures! I’m going there for the first time in July to visit, & to see the band My Bloody Valentine. I cannot wait to see that sky first hand 🙂
