am i ready to leap
is there peace beneath 
the roar of the forth road bridge?
on the northern side 
there's a fife of mine
and a boat in the port for me

i'll float away
down the forth, into the sea

there are two bridges from edinburgh, over the fjord called the firth at forth, to fife. there is a space beneath one of them where no one is and where you can sit in the fog for a bit and feel like you don't actually exist at all, if you like that sort of thing.

    who are you? no amount of compensation will reverse the effects of this blog. not an avocado that you would ruin in the mail nor a pathetic petition to be friends. the only just compensation would be the elimination of this ridiculous blog.

    1. you're right, i shouldn't try to bribe people with fruit. it hasn't really worked for me in the past, so i don't know why i keep trying. i just feel like some day i'll meet a really mean person who really loves avocados and i'll just win them over with one simple green gift.

      oh, that life could be that easy.

    2. There is a really easy solution to your problem, Danielle. Stop reading the blog. Done. Unless you're looking for drama, and I have a hunch you may...

    3. mmm, drama. i'm not sure why anyone would look for it here though. my comments sections are not a very dramatic place. try youtube?

  2. Oi. I hope Ms. Danielle there is a friend, and that that is an inside joke. Otherwise, oi. /:) (<--that's a sardonic smiley face with one raised eyebrow.) I particularly enjoyed picture #... oh, I don't know what number. The one with the bird flying out of the fog. It should be a painting.

  3. Beautiful photos. Beautiful post.

    Who is this person who hasn't yet cottoned onto the fact that if they don't like your blog they perhaps shouldn't keep reading it? People are strange.

  6. I wasn't sure if that comment was an inside joke, either... I'm still not, actually, but I love your photos - I always get a big smile on my face when I'm crossing the Forth Rail Bridge on my way to Edinburgh because I know I'm almost there.

Say anything you want. It doesn't even have to be relevant.
