Mind your step


About this memory

These are the railings, caught by the sun, as I made my way, very cautiously, down the steps by the Mound, moving from the darker setting of Edinburgh's Old Town to the now bustling and very different world of the New Town. What I liked was the patterning nature had imposed on a functional and practical route which must have been much appreciated when first constructed to cut through the earth and mud. As is evident, more go down than up!
