The pedestrians here are
heading along Princes Street and crossing Hanover Street.
This view looks up
Hanover Street towards the statue of George IV at the Hanover Street
/ George Street junction.
This photograph was
taken from the steps of the Royal Scottish Academy in Princes
The photograph above was taken with an exposure of 1/8 second -
just about long enough to convert several of the pedestrians to
'one-legged figures' as one leg remained on the ground and the other
swung through the air during the exposure.
Compare the photograph
above with the photo below taken with an exposure of 1/100
second, just about short enough to freeze the motion of the
pedestrians. Please click the thumbnail image below to enlarge
