Royal Mile, Edinburgh
13 December 2014
This is The Hub at Royal Mile.
It is a very tall building and I shot this one with my 12-24mm lens on my Canon 5D; still managed to nick the cross at the top (I don’t think I even noticed the cross while I was there).
Two photos in this blog post because I can’t decide between Colour or Black and White.
“The Hub, at the top of Edinburgh’s Royal Mile, is the home of the Edinburgh International Festival, and a central source of information on all the Edinburgh Festivals.
“Its gothic spire – the highest point in central Edinburgh – towers over the surrounding buildings below the castle. The building design was the result of a collaboration between Edinburgh architect J Gillespie Graham and the famous gothic revivalist Augustus Pugin.
“It was constructed between 1842 and 1845.”
