No, it’s not Paris, it’s Edinburgh, the Paris of the North! Back again to 2004, and the Continental Market on the streets of Scotland’s capital. This French Market Stall is doing what the French seem to do best – export their wine!
“So, what do you do for a living then?” “I’m in advertising, innit…”
Here’s an old image. It was December, 2004 and I was stalking the streets of Edinburgh one afternoon, with my very first Digital SLR, a Nikon D70, (before that I’d relied on my Nikon FM2 and a Bronica 645), when I noticed this utterly dejected figure, standing in the bitterly cold wind, advertising pub lunches. Yet at the same time – he’s reading a paperback, folded in his hands!
