Scotland


I lived for a number of years in Edinburgh, Scotland, where I first attended postgraduate school, then taught at a (rival) university.  I traveled throughout Scotland; these are a few of the pictures I took.  Note all were taken using slide film, and have been converted to digital images more recently, thus colors may not be as vivid as originally portrayed, and sharpness may be slightly less than ideal.
