To be a tourist in your hometown is quite a hard thing to do; you ignore things everyday that someone who was visiting would stop and notice. In the last couple of years that we've travelled ourselves, it's something I have become more and more aware of.
Edinburgh's historic Royal Mile, the hub for all tourists, runs from Holyrood Palace up a steady hill to the top of Castle Rock where Edinburgh Castle sits. It is the focus of Edinburgh's Fringe Festival in August but, unlike any other location in the City, it has a buzz of festival about it throughout the year with street performers, stalls, and "heritage" shops to entice the tourist to part with their money.
I headed out with my Holga 120 Wide Pinhole Camera and my Pentax SP500 35mm to try and capture it as I journeyed from Holyrood Palace/The Scottish Parliament building, up the mile to Castle Rock.
