Leith

Also includes Leith Street. There are a few duplications with the Calton gallery. Also see Water of Leith Walkway June 2017 which has some July 2018 additions.
The Amazon Prime gallery has more photos (1418 compared to 556) but less information. It includes a handful of very early photos obviously not taken by me.
This area has been completely rebuilt, but back in 1978 the circus came to town and camped here. The Elephant Transporter looks rather surreal against the desolate background.The same subject as above, through a wide-angle lens. Gavin Dickson - who lived nearby - tells me the elephant transporter was parked in Burlington street which was demolished by Edinburgh Corporation.A line of circus vehicles on waste ground.Arched windows galore. An old bond building off Anderson Place. The fire escape seems to be overgrown with foliage.January morning sunshine on the building in Great Junction Street. Famous for their Crabbie's Green Ginger.This training? ship was parked down here for years I seem to remember...Small metal stylised statues of pigeons in Leith Walk at the corner of Elm Row and London Road. I prefer them to the real thing.Another view from higher up. In this shot, a real pigeon seems to be getting chased by monster metal ones.The stark geometry appealed to me. This building is very visible from miles away on top of the Pentland Hills. Being close to the Royal Yacht Britannia, the flour mill naturally has to be clean and white. It wasn't always so. Nice fence, too.This is the mural on the corner of Ferry Road and North Junction Street. Pilrig Church is on the left. The old railway bridge over Leith Walk at Jane Street is at the top right of the picture.The same negative as the previous shot, this time showing more of the foreground. Taken from Calton Hill with 350mm lens. Later scan 1040 x 1632 pixels. Click the download icon to see full-size.Early picture. The arched bridge over the Water of Leith, near the docks. The same bridge as the black and white shot.Shot on Kodak Infra Red monochrome 35mm film. The island of Inchkeith stands out very clearly in infrared light.A time-exposure of a few seconds through a 350mm lens - on a sturdy tripod. The old railway bridge over the bottom end of Leith Walk, next to Jane Street, is clearly visible.This is how it used to look, back in 1978. 
Update 2001 from Lee Kindness: '...(actually the photo is mainly of Gordon Street) and you mention that it's 'as it used to look' - well, after walking down there this morning (I live there) I can vouch that's basically how it looks now... crap bingo and all!'A building close by the royal yacht.Oyster Bar is the name of the establishment across the river, the Water Of Leith. Looks vaguely Dutch...Moss taken with the wide-angle lens on the Nikon Coolpix 900, my 1st digicam with 1.2 MegaPixels.Lisa Johnson from New Zealand told me this was in Henderson St. In the back left is No 89 Henderson St where her gran and grandad lived. Alan Mackay tells me 'it was directly opposite Tollbooth Wynd around the corner from the old 'Brew' and Lamb House. It was a community project in the mid to late seventies. I remember it well and have a friend who used to work on the playground.'Another photo of the playground scanned from an old negative. That's my daughter Linda standing on the pipe.The setting sun catches Britannia in the distance. This is near Newhaven harbour.A rather different view to Oyster Bar (above) which I took more recently from the other side of the Water Of Leith. I called this image 'quiet' when I saved it - for obvious reasons. Taken in the late '70s or early '80s.The same view more recently in March 2010. The same church spire is visible in both this and the previous picture.Great place for a meal on a hot summer's evening, I'd imagine. Had a cup of coffee on board one time.A panorama taken with the wide-angle adapter on the Nikon Coolpix 900.They actually had a political presence in Leith at this time, and here's a photo of their premises, squeezed in between a model shop, a pub and a pawnbrokers.I think this is Lamb's House. I was intrigued by the irregularly placed windows.A more direct shot of  some of the windows featured in the other picture above.A stone's throw from the Royal Yacht Britannia is this desolate scene with a burnt-out motorbike on the cycle path near Lindsay Road and Anchorfield. Contrasting, almost primary colours here. The driver is either a worker here or else he failed to read the ABSOLUTELY NO PARKING 24H signs.Blue Light Emitting Diodes are used to illuminate the exterior of the Ocean Terminal building. These are attached to the handrail of the balcony overlooking the Royal Yacht Britannia. Will fail due to damp.Inside the building everything is pristine and most of the shops are still unoccupied. Once it fills up a bit, the ambient noise will hopefully lose some of its unpleasant reverberation. This is the first of three views up the centre of the mall.The camera is panned down here, showing more of the floor below.Looking down one of the cinema escalators.The high ceiling and the tall pillars, bathed in blue light.The surface has been leveled and prepared for something new. Meantime there's an uninterrupted view of the back of Commercial Street as well as Citadel Court and Persevere Court.The road called Shore which runs along the east side of the Water of Leith river as it approaches the docks. Looking quite Dutch in these pictures.Looking down-river towards Leith Docks. The floating restaurant was previously painted yellow.Contrasting styles of architecture. The bus shelter in the foreground is of unusual construction for Leith and Edinburgh. The bridge leads to Sandport Place.Leith Walk consists of numerous small streets joined together. Middlefield is one of them. The tower block is Inchkeith Court in Spey Terrace. The ugly concrete structure on the left is Shrubhill House.This was a firm specialising in ICE (InCarAudio) and I would have thought that the yuppies might have had cars crying out for CD jukeboxes etc.This distinctive building has recently had a green and yellow paint job. It's quite far down Leith Walk on the left hand side. The first commercial use of the phrase that I've seen. It does have its advantages over email. Reminds me of the Neil Innes song 'Face Mail in the Meat Zone'. A nice paint job enhances the curves of the stonework at this Leith Walk corner. Confusingly, Leith Walk includes Union Place, Greenside Place, Antigua Street, Baxter's Place, Gayfield Place, Elm Row, Haddington Place, Croall Place, Brunswick Place, Shrub Place, Albert Place, Crighton Place, Middlefield and maybe others. A new housing development which will undoubtedly do as the sign says and provide a new perspective on Edinburgh. The other sign proclaims 'an exclusive development of apartments, duplexes and penthouses'. Great things are afoot, we are assured. On Ocean Drive is this view towards Western Harbour. A long blue fence borders the north side of the road.Previously featured in RedCarBlueDoor.Photographed from the mouth of Victoria Dock beside Ocean Drive. Yet another view of this ubiquitous landmark. If what remains of the Granton Gasworks goes, then pilots may substitute this as a visual reference point. The George Brown building featured above but with a wider view showing the waterside restaurants and pubs. The entrance to a shopping mall just off Great Junction Street. The lift shaft and / or stairwell indicates that it will be about 15 storeys high. The views should be stunning in all directions.The same blue fence as on the previous page but instead of advertising 'a luxurious lifestyle' it's now telling us that it'll be 'exciting living' on the other side. A view from the most westerly corner of Victoria Dock towards its entrance. This is blocked to all but ducks and seagulls by the Ocean Drive bridge. This may be intentional as Victoria Dock is at the rear of the Scottish Executive building.Photo of an intriguing brick building. (2004)The swing bridge with the Shore behind.A view up river towards the Shore on the left and Commercial Street Bridge straight ahead. An LRT bus is crossing into Bernard Street beyond the blue boat. Parked at the quaysideThe sign beside the old Tardis-style police box advertises a cruise ship.The George Brown & Sons building - and the Mary of Guise boat tied up next to it. The cool colours of the building are complemented by the warm colours of the boat.A heap of trash on the dockside, origin and destination unknown. The metal content will probably be recycled.Three elegant white cranes wait patiently beside this vessel. The Kaubturm has, so I was told by a local man, been there for at least a year and no longer has any engines. It was built in 1978. The rails where the cranes once moved along the dockside are now becoming overgrown with moss and grass. No cargo has been loaded or unloaded here for a while. This enigmatic building overlooks the Albert Dock. To get anywhere near it, you have to pass through the locked gates at the entrance to Leith Docks. The gates are unmanned but there's a telephone and security system.A few yards further south, nearer to Ocean Drive is this view west towards the Ocean Terminal building. Moss now grows in amongst the railway lines and stone setts. Debenham's grey waterside building is colour-matched with a passing ship emblazoned with the legend 'Iceland Cement'.The rubbish that has floated down the Water of Leith gets trapped behind this floating boom. It used to be further back and has presumably been relocated to this less obvious place where Ocean Drive crosses the entrance to Victoria Dock. A coot seems unperturbed by the junk and dives for fish nearby. Hopefully this disgusting mess (only 120 metres from the Scottish Executive building) gets cleaned up every once in a while. It's sad that antisocial arseholes dump their rubbish in Edinburgh's river.The Iceland Cement ship (previous picture) is now inside Albert Dock ready to load or unload its cargo. Overlooked by twin tower blocks Persevere Court & Citadel Court, this intriguing little tower still commands fine views. Photographed from Ocean Drive. This road runs west from the bottom of Constitution Street and continues to the Newhaven end of Western Harbour. It's mostly unused so far and and isn't quite comparable to Chicago's Lakeshore Drive. Debenhams store lurks behind an empty office building.A closer wide-angle look at the empty edifice, photographed from the roundabout at the end of Britannia Way.The Royal Yacht Britannia has its entrance and visitor centre within the Ocean Terminal building. The yacht's funnel, though big compared to the lifeboats, is dwarfed by Chancelot Flour Mill half a kilometre to the west. Giant spools and reels at the water's edge suggests undersea cables, and the 'Subsea 7' sign reinforces this notion. The same view as the previous picture but zoomed in to show more detail.Another consignment of cocaine for Leith's well-to-do incomers waits on the dockside. (just kidding)Looking right through the empty building from the multi storey car park.Another view through the windows showing the asymmetrical arch of the old swing bridge about 400 metres away.This sign removes any doubt as to which level of the car park you're on. Shining in the sunlight on the other side of Western Harbour are nascent waterfront buildings which will further transform this whole area. From Level 7 we can see all of Britannia, not especially large for a royal yacht. Same viewpoint as the previous photo but zoomed in for a look at the demolition work going on at Chancelot Flour Mill. Sadly, a worker was killed at this site. The apartment buildings across the harbour will have fabulous views of the sea-going traffic and the landscapes beyond. In this picture the town of Dalgety Bay is visible through the haze on the Firth of Forth. The railway line which passes under here has remained in use solely for transporting rubbish to Powderhall. The bridge has been weakened and road traffic restricted to one way to reduce the load. Salisbury Crags tower above in the distance behind Abbeyhill Tech Base. Those tiny dots, 4 pixels high, are people walking on the crags. Three vessels in the docks. A submarine is travelling backwards towards Western Harbour with the assistance of a tug. An enormous ship resplendent with countless satellite dishes and radio antennae forms the background.From higher up (on top of the convenient multi-storey carpark) there's a better view of two of the large dishes as well as a small landing craft. The 7th floor of the carpark provides this view of the submarine and tug. We can see over the Firth of Forth to Kinghorn and its caravan site on the side of a hill.I'd forgotten that I'd rescanned this old negative until I responded to a usenet message about lith film and solarising etc. The effect here is entirely chemically induced. The lines were formed by developer depletion in adjacent areas of high contrast.

Do a search for Mackie Lines if you want more information. This image prints quite well but you are only allowed to make one copy for your own use. Commercial use is strictly forbidden as with all my work. For full-size 1040 x 1632 click download icon on the line below.The picture above features a poster for The Da Vinci Code; this one has a shop called White Stuff which apparently sells urban and outdoor clothing. Ultrawide / fisheye lenses can capture dramatic persectives in this sort of shopping mall. Previously I took photos with a 1.2 megapixel Nikon Coolpix camera with a wide angle adapter.Another part of the building with a sort of cylindrical atrium. Debenham's department store lies beyond. A vertical fisheye view of the atrium. The man at the bottom of the picture is directly below but we can still see the top of the building where the sunlight is filtering in.Outside the building is this big empty space on which are scattered several of these concrete pipes painted red and white. Beyond to the right lies the Scottish Executive building. Closer inspection reveals yellow ladder rungs fixed to the interior of the pipes. However, it's not possible to descend very far because they're blocked up.More fisheye views of the shopping mall...More fisheye views of the shopping mall...More fisheye views of the shopping mall...More fisheye views of the shopping mall...More fisheye views of the shopping mall...More fisheye views of the shopping mall...I got this far before being cautioned by a security guard, but that's more than enough fisheye views of this establishment.How this part of Leith looked in July 2007. The tidal barrage at the docks maintains a constant water level over a large area.This structure stands at the side of Ocean Drive and seems to have been transported from the top of a building. It's in a sad state. Presumably someone considered it worth saving and renovating.Cyan painted railings separate Ocean Drive from Lindsay Road above. A blue signpost shows the way to Hawthornvale Path while a red sign warns drivers to slow down. A lady in red chats on her phone while a silver BMW heads west.The long grass and flowering clover belie the painted statement on the wall. Behind the brick garages is the new housing development of Portland Gardens. Photo taken from the east end of Ocean Drive next to the Ocean Terminal Shopping Centre.A view of the new houses going up at Western Harbour. Photographed from the top deck of the carpark at the north east end of the shopping centre.This is a lock gate where the water coming from the Water of Leith is held back. Just like Holland but not on such a grand scale. 110 meters south of the river is this Y junction with new houses built to fit the shape available. Burns Place is on the left, Newhaven Road continues north over the bridge then up the hill towards Ferry Road.'Do not be afraid' advises the writing on the wall. Traders in this district are most afraid of the forthcoming trams and the impact that the roadworks has on their businesses.Demolition proceeds across the road at Shrubhill. The building with the chimney is at Dryden Street 250 metres north west of Leith Walk.The factory building has gone but its wall remains, no doubt at much relief to the occupants of the houses beyond at Shaw's Terrace, Street and Place.Zoomed in for a closer look at the brickwork. Photographed September 2008.Snapped from the top of a number 11 bus on 10 April 2009. Leith, though adjacent to Edinburgh and technically part of it, has a character all of its own. Some of it reminds me of Glasgow but part of the area seems to have a thing about stone pillars.Further up Haddington Place showing some of the shops.McNaughtan's Bookshop has been here for a while.1 of 2 brick buildings that caught my eye in Annandale Street. This mosque has had an excellent paint job, enhanced by bright sunshine and the deep blue sky.Traditional red bricks and the glass dome make this building unusual in Edinburgh. Lothian Buses were formerly known as LRT (Lothian Regional Transport). Prior to that they were called Edinburgh Corporation Transport.It's suprising how many basements and sub-basements Edinburgh tenements have. This attractive building was renovated (new stonework is lighter in colour) and looks splendid overlooking Leith Walk.The roadworks in preparation for the trams' arrival inevitably causes traffic delays and lack of access, causing many businesses to suffer as shoppers go elsewhere.Calton Hill (the street, not the hill) is closed to all traffic except for pedestrians. This narrow passageway is all the access available whilst construction of The Cube goes ahead. The previous footbridge across Leith Street from the St James Centre allowed people to walk across to Calton Hill without having to descend stairs then climb again.The same narrow passageway seen from the other side of Leith Street.Looking down through the bendy bridge.Despite the cube-shaped hole in the ground The Cube seems big enough to obliterate the view of and from the old house pictured at top left of this image. The CGI images from the website are somewhat coy about this old house.This shows the measures taken to prop up the street, perching, as it now does, on top of a cliff cut into the crumbling rock.Reinforced concrete slabs prop up this part of Calton Hill.Wire mesh is fastened to the rock face to support any crumbling lumps which might otherwise fall down.Just over a year has elapsed since the Cube works above. In November 2009 the building seems almost ready but the Calton Hill road is still closed to traffic.Pedestrians do still have access and can climb the steep lane called Calton Hill up to Calton Hill itself. It's well worth the effort for scenic views in all directions.At the top of this narrow passageway are the old houses, at least one of which has had its view totally cut off.Added later, a photo of the old bridge, taken in 2001.The old bridge was boxy and ugly but at least it took you a significant way up Calton Hill. Now you must descend steps to Leith Street before climbing up again.Near the bottom of Leith Walk, looking towards Edinburgh City Centre. A railway bridge once crossed the street overhead. At the beginning of the 20th century it was possible to travel from Leith Central Station to Morningside Station in a fraction of the time it takes 100 years later. Another view of excavations further up Leith Walk.Part of this interesting old gate is missing, and it's rather grimy but it still looks quite impressive. It's opposite Lorne Street in the bottom half of Leith Walk. The other half of the gate is pictured further down this page.This half of the gate is comparatively clean and shiny. Dazzling colours and confusing signs greet the motorist down at the docks.Looking west from the east end of Leith Links. Claremont Park is the road running along the left side.300m further east is this railway siding on the north side of Seafield Road. The wagon bears the legend English Welsh & Scottish Railway.It's obviously been a while since this train went anywhere.SLEEPING BEAUTY! proclaims the bilboard to passing motorists on Seafield Road. The train sleeps in the siding but its beauty lies in the eye of the beholder - should the beholder be impressed by heavy metal engineering.The engineering is sufficiently innovative to be patented. The text is cast in steel.A few metres east is the entrance to Seafield Crematorium and Cemetery. A footpath passes above the entrance on a former railway line.About 110m east of the the crematorium entrance is this barely used footbridge over the branch railway line. A few paces away is a crossing making climbing unnecessary.climbing the steps onto the bridge affords views. This shot shows Seafield Road through the rusty ironwork.This is the view east from the bridge, showing the rail crossing and the tenements at the corner of Seafield Street - which leads to the Eastern General Hospital.A familiar view to motorists heading along Seafield Road from Leith to Portobello. The triangular hill on the horizon is North Berwick Law.Looking back west along to the tenements beside Seafield Street. There's a freight train - perhaps taking imported coal to Cockenzie Power Station, and a cyclist headed east.Not far from Ocean Terminal is this spot where the path from Crewe Toll ends beside Lindsay Road.Previously photographed. One of Edinburgh's notorious vacant sites. It remains an unofficial adventure playground for local youngsters, one of whom has left his skateboard behind.The concrete skeleton of the adjacent former council block also remains an adventure playground and graffiti gallery despite stern warning notices about 24hour security surveillance. The authorities won't pay for security staff and put warning notices up as an unconvincing substitute.Being upstairs on a bus coming up Leith Walk gave me a higher viewpoint for this shot.Arthur Street leads to Balfour Street near Pilrig Park. Leith Walk has had a reprieve from the tram works and much of the street is looking smart again, especially the nice paintwork at Sound & Vision.Further down the road opposite Lorne Street are these business premises which have been empty for a while.At the end of Jane Street a shiny notice boasts of the wonderful tram service which we should see one day. Overhead is the remains of the rail bridge over Leith Walk. In the 19th century a passenger train went from Leith Central Station to Morningside Station in 20 minutes. Progress?Try getting from Leith to Morningside in 20 minutes on today's public transport! More of Jane Street in this photo.The nearby statue of Queen Victoria at the foot of Leith Walk has been supplemented by this big shiny spike. Photographed at the beginning of a cold March 2010. The bench seats will be crowded when warmer days arrive in spring and summer.Just round the corner from Great Junction Streeet is a café with this eye-catching Hot Dog Man anointing himself with ketchup. The stuff of nightmares?Cables Wynd House (aka the Banana Flats) is the large concrete block of flats on the left. Henderson Gardens lead to Henderson Street on the right.Nearby is The Vintners Rooms Restaurant and its private courtyard.Here you can see a litte more of the curve where the building bends. Its shape gave Cables Wynd House the nickname Banana Flats.Henderson Street ends here at Tolbooth Wynd. To the left is Sheriff Brae and Sandport Place bridge. The 16 bus continues along Shore before turning left over the Water of Leith and into Commecial Street.Two views over the river from Sheriff Brae. This is looking upstream. further back, Citadel Court blocks the view of its identical sibling, Persevere Court.Looking downstream towards Sandport Place bridge. The water level remains constant here due to the tidal barrage at the far end of the docks.Once the State Cinema it's currently The Kingdom Church aka Edinburgh Miracle Temple. It's unknown whether any actual miracles have been achieved. If they had been then we'd have heard, surely?Given a warm sunny day, a meal on the top deck of the floating restaurant would be quite pleasant, I'd imagine. A wider view of the Shore area as seen from the bridge connecting Commercial Street to Bernard Street.A gangway alows diners and drinkers to cross from the street. Further down-river on the left is the swing bridge beside Ocean Drive.Looking past the bow of the floating restaurant towards Customs House (now a gallery). The corner of Commercial Wharf and Commercial Street can be seen.A hotel apparently - but my O-level French makes me think it translates literally as bad house. Previously photographed. On the corner of Shore and Tower Street.Looking south west from near the Albert Dock. The rounded block of flats is on the corner of Constitution Street and Tower Street.Heavy metal machinery on the edge of Albert Dock.Leith is still an active port but these dockside cranes have fallen into disuse. Nevertheless, they still look attractive with their paintwork gleaming in the sun.The narrower part of Albert Dock, near its western entrance.The entrance to Victoria Dock (on the left) is no longer navigable as Ocean Drive crosses it here. Victoria Dock is at the rear of the Scottish Executive building.A closer look at the ship glimpsed in Docks 54 above.I'm guessing that there's going to be a great big notice here with an artist's impression of the beauties of tram travel.Ocean Terminal has become more attractive these days with good shops. The area in front remains empty except for puddles and strange red and white striped pipe things.Not far from Royal Yacht Britannia is this dilapidated old wooden pier stretching into Western Harbour. The new homes bearing the same name are 1km away across the harbour.Sharp-eyed visitors may notice the figure of a man standing at the end of the pier, apparently about to dive or jump into the water.Closer inspection with a long lens shows that this is an iron man with studs on his buttocks and seagull shit on his head and shoulders.Zoomed right in on the iron man. I used Google Earth's ruler to figure out that he was at least 90m away.At the west side of the entrance to Albert Dock was this extremely orange vessel. I made no adjustments to the colour or contrast. I'm fairly certain its purpose is to lay undersea cable.I have no idea what this metal building is for, situated at the northern end of the multistorey carpark.The front of the building is quite imposing, with the metal plates and rivets catching the sunlight. The purpose of the upper door on its little balcony eludes me, as does everthing else about this strongbox construction.
The upper door has some large dents in it made from the inside...The multistorey carpark has something resembliing horizontal railings jutting out from each floor. These metal beams do not seem to serve any useful purpose and their presence may be purely for decoration.Previously photographed from the top of the adjacent car park. This time I got up close with a fisheye lens.There's a timber business apparently thriving like the back wall of the yard, where nature is thriving and will destroy the building if the demolition men don't get there first. Preserved by additional brickwork and perhaps one day resurrected as a historic facade. Salamander Street connects Baltic Street to Seafield Road and runs east-west between Leith Links and Leith Docks.Home to Leith Victoria Swim Centre and also the excellent Leith Community Treatment Centre.A close up shot of the shield and motto carved in the red sandstone over the entrance to the Swim Centre (or Victorian Public Baths).Dr Bell's School is in the main street just around the corner from Junction Place.The word snobby wouldn't do in the card shops in Bruntsfield Place or Morningside Road but Leith shoppers would get the message ok.I didn't know for sure if Swanfield is / was an industrial estate. It seems to be so as confirmed by a PDF found when googling. This entrance from Great Junction Street looks disused.Along the road and round the corner is a building formerly belonging to the Salvation Army but now acquired by MOUNTAIN OF FIRE & MIRACLE MINISTRIES INTERNATIONAL. There is more information including their email. Another picture later...Razor wire doesn't make a very good quilt, any more than broken glass would make a nice duvet. This sign is very misleading.On the left Leith Victoria Swim Centre's Bonnington Road entrance and, to its right, Leith Community Treatment Centre.Former home of Datalink Computer Sales aka DCS, a former employer of mine.To my eyes this new housing project at Western Harbour looks like CGI rendered by a computer. The views from higher up must be quite stunning.Down at street level the views are not so much stunning as interesting. Nature is always ready to step in where investors are biding their time. Development of Western Harbour has lagged behind expectations. The security fences bear the logo of Clockwork Security but my explorations were unimpeded.The fence has been pushed over here but the water provides a more effective barrier.It's unclear whether all the wet areas will be filled in.Thanks to the local lady who assured me I wasn't going to be hassled by security guards in my photographic meanderings. Pictured here is one of the roads to nowhere.Out here there are uninterrupted views back to the city. Citadel Court and Persevere Court are at the right with Arthur's Seat beyond.Part of the area is intended to be a park where children might play - but there are many dangers due to the lack of security and the state of the landscape.A shiny new road leads across a flooded wasteland to an embankment of mud. Beyond is the familiar outline of Arthur's Seat and the city of Edinburgh.A street curves round a bend and stops abruptly.A sturdy fence runs the length of the heavily fortified sea wall. Granton Gasworks' remaining gasometer is in the distance to the west.Pointing a long lens towards Newhaven makes the fence more resemble a wall.A passing ship caused uniform waves to lap gently against the sea wall.The approach along the sea wall towards the seaward entrance to the Port of Leith.The little red building is at the northernmost point of Leith or Edinburgh (unless you include Cramond Island). Incoming vessels must wait beside the pier for lock gates to be opened.The sea wall forms a straight line heading south west for 820m before curving to the south at Newhaven. It looks more robust than the storm-damaged sea wall at Silverknowes.An ultrawide lens is necessary to get all storeys of the building in in this vertical view. Up at the top, the views to Fife and over Leith and Edinburgh must be very impressive indeed.Presumably the fence once provided a barrier at low tide as well. Steel fences tend to suffer when submerged by salt water twice daily.The speed boat belongs to Forth Ports Pilots whose function is to pilot ships in and out of the docks here and and at other places in the estuary.Looking across towards Leith with Salisbury Crags in the distance.Similar to W Harbour 10 but zoomed in more with the Pentax K7 DSLR instead of the Lumix camera. Left to right: Citadel Court, Persevere Court, Arthur's Seat and Salisbury Crags.On the left, Chancelot Flour Mill. On the right are the characteristic shapes of the Pentland Hills and Edinbugh Castle.Zoomed in on the the grey silhouettes of the castle and Caerketton Hill in the Pentlands. The Asda superstore at Newhaven stands in front.Nature will soon colonise these flooded areas if developers don't.A crow lands on a rock in the water.Salisbury Crags and Calton Hill form the backdrop.Another shot of Citadel Court, Persevere Court and Arthur's Seat.Mud, water, an ocean-going ship and Salisbury Crags.The mown grass in the foreground implies that this is part of the public park area. The old lighthouse is disused and has of course been vandalised by teenage boys.Looking over the wall confirms that this is a tidal area open to the sea.This building with the odd shaped roof is across the other side of the tidal barrier near the locks which allow ships in and out of the docks.This is a long shot right across Western Harbour to the old wooden pier beside Ocean Terminal. At the end of the pier is one of the Gormley statues, just visible here.The old lighthouse. No doubt older kids come here to get stoned or drunk.A wide angle view as I approached the lighthouse.A futile attempt at keeping people out with a fence is augmented by a yellow warning notice.Apparently, proceeding beyong this point renders one liable to prosecution. The text explains more about being searched and having your vehicle (aquatic..?) searched. A closer look.I changed back to the K7 camera for this view across to the building beside the lock gates.On my way back I noticed this metal plaque embedded in a rock in the sea wall. It says '3500 FT' which is presumably the distance from the shore. (3500 feet = 1067 metres)A final look across to the docks before heading back in Newhaven direction.Four fisheye shots of the new apartment buildings.Western Harbour Way states the street sign at the bottom of this block. A more symmetrical view of the same building.Another building closer to Newhaven.Looking back. This shot taken with the Panasonic Lumix LX5 compact camera.Where the sea wall curves sits a woman, maybe drawing or painting.Matching the other metal plaque (W Harbour 46LX5) is this one which says '900FT' instead of '3500FT'.The path reaches the mouth of Newhaven Harbour. While I was looking at the view from the top deck of the Ocean Terminal car park this pigeon landed on the railing and examined me.At first I thought this ship was unloading but it is in fact loading.Closer inspection suggests it's loading some kind of grain for export overseas.The view from higher up shows 2 tipper lorries unloading onto a conveyor belt which feeds another onto the ship.It seems the lorry on the right has finished unloading. It drives off and lowers its container.The cargo is sprayed into the ship's hold supervised by a man in a yellow jacket.Zoomed in more for a closer look at the light brown substance being loaded into the hold.Looking across Western Harbour from Ocean Terminal. A tug boat is called Fidra after the island in the Firth of Forth.Three shots of the Gormley statue from Ocen Terminal car park. The old wooden pier shows the ravages of time.I changed my vantage point in order to exclude the red buoy. A thought: If Americans pronounce buoy 'boo-ay' how do they say 'buoyancy'? (We pronouce buoy the same as boy.)In this shot I virtually excluded the pier in order to try and get a sense of the figure looking out across the sea.Down at ground level I took an updated long lens shot. As can be seen, the seagulls have scant regard for a human figure as long as it's motionless.On the top deck of the car park looking towards the Ocean Point building.It's taken a while but the Ocean Point building seems to be fulfilling its original purpose of office accommodation.Just over a year ago I visited Leith's Western Harbour and shot the earlier photos. Not a great deal had changed when I came back on 1st of March 2012.Today's steely grey sky seems to suit the metal clad exterior of these buildings. Some of the 'ponds' have ducks and swans resident. Rickety fences and unconvincing security notices surround some areas. Here, a red warning sign says 'Pedestrians look both ways'. A fence has been removed here making it easier to approach the end of the pier. (The vandalised building at the end does have a secure fence around it now.)Arthur's Seat forms the backdrop for Citadel Court and Persevere Court.A wider view showing the waterside.The fence here is rather more permanent. Forth Ports yellow notice warns this is a restricted area.Inchkeith in the Firth of Forth.No connection to Great King Street, this short street connects Leith Street to St James Place at the rear of the St James shopping centre.A few paces to the north is Cathedral Lane, parallel to Little King Street. Tramworks have closed off the top of Broughton Street. To the right is the Picardy Place roundabout. (An entire city block was demolished to make way for the roundabout.)Peering through the trees across the roundabout. Straight ahead is the Playhouse theatre.'I [heart] Leith' say a succession of signs fixed to lamp posts. Two long lens shots show the traffic going up and down Leith Walk past all the restaurants and specialised shops, some of which have been photographed by David Byrne from Talking Heads.More Leith Walk traffic, slightly distorted by the refraction of warm air and exhaust fumes.Sunny Leith! This large, wallpaper-sized infrared photo features Western Harbour, the Chancelot Flour Mill, Ocean Terminal, Persevere Court and Citadel Court in the sunshine. In the gloomier parts of the picture various Edinburgh landmarks are visible including Edinburgh Castle. It's raining in Fife.In this smaller picture Inchkeith Island is left of centre. In front of that can be seen Edinburgh Castle's Esplanade and the grassy slope (light grey) leading down to Johnson Terrace. (These infrared photos were taken from Capelaw in the Pentland Hills.)In the middle distance you can see the horse shoe shaped Scottish Widows building at Morrison Street. In front of that at the foot of the photo there's a glimpse of George Watson's school and the Andrew Duncan Clinic at the Royal Edinburgh Hospital in Morningside.Zoomed in a little more on Western Harbour and the Chancelot Mill. Look for the cylindrical EICC building left of centre as well as Scottish Widows and George Watson's on the right.Earlier pages show this building in various states. Now it's been blocked off with sheets of metal which also provide a blank canvas for graffiti - most of which is just clumsy scrawls.March 2013 saw me taking a leisurely stroll down Leith Walk. York Place was closed to traffic and buses were diverted up Leith Street passed the Omni Centre's windows with their distorted reflections.Earlier Leith pages have shown this building in various states. There's site preparation work going on nearby but it seems they'd rather sell this concrete block than demolish it.Photographed from Shrub Place Lane which runs parallel to the railway cutting.Recently excavated ground at the site reveals geological strata.A JCB digger tidies up.Looks like the building and chimneys at the corner of Dryden Place and Dryden Terrace are being demolished. Had I noticed the steeplejack on the left chimney I'd have zoomed in for another shot.Here's a crop of the same image.Zoomed in on the demolition.Emerging from Albert Street into Leith Walk is a motorcyclist who doesn't have to wear a helmet.The lower storeys of the Shrubhill building have been closed off with metal sheets to discourage further decoration by graffiti artists. The ALL ENQUIRIES sign implies it's for sale.A vertical view shows the top two storeys. The decorated block on the roof probably houses a water cistern. The pigeons on the roof may have set up home on the top floors.Behind the posters advertising Jimmy Carr and the new Bongo Club, an adolescent male has shown his spelling skills and his like for plants with fleshy leaves. The old Bongo Club was in New Street.Near the corner of Pilrig Street.The Wee Leith Shop is just that.I'm always impressed by the immaculate paint job on this shop at the corner of Arthur Street.Two shops, one presumably catering to cats and dogs - the other has moved. I recently heard kebabs described as 'hospital waste on a stick'.This most unusual frontage for Leith Walk belongs to WOODLAND CREATURES. More information from Greener Leith.A wider view shows the location - where Balfour's used to be.Different areas of Edinburgh have specialist shops. Gorgie/Dalry and Leith have tanning salons and tattoo parlours - and much more.This is the leftmost end of a long, low, 2-storey red sandstone building near the foot of Leith Walk. At the other end of the building is Jane Street, next to the remains of a railway bridge which once crossed Leith Walk.Defence Lawyers and furniture salerooms. Both seem to prosper hereabouts.Looking back at the Jane Street junction from further down. 'Little Havana' aka THE PIPE SHOP is one of the few remaining tobacconists.April 3rd 2013. It's still chilly but the sunshine is warm enough today for a comfortable (if not majestic) snooze at the side of Leith Walk. (This is Arthur by the way - thanks to Tom Ellingham for the info.)Turn left at the foot of Leith Walk and you're in Great Junction Street. Half way along on the right some old tenements have been demolished and new buildings are being erected. Meantime there's a new view of the Banana Flats, so called because they're banana shaped if seen from above.A wider view of the scene showing the site between the barbers shop and the old Crabbie's building.Just before Great Junction Street crosses the Water of Leith is the old cinema, currently in use as a church of sorts.North Junction Street is overlooked by Persevere Court.HiFi Corner's shop has been here for decades.After walking down the Water of Leith Walkway from Belford Bridge we waited on the 16 bus here. Whilst its master read, this dog lay down in the warm sunshine for a rest.Thanks to Kirsty Cameron for this: 'Nigar Kirtan, the singing of prayers through the Sikhs local community done at this time to celebrate Vaisakhi.'These pictures were snapped from upstairs on the 16 bus.At the corner of Jane Street and Leith Walk.The last of four pictures snapped from the bus.At the north end of Constitution Street assorted signs impart information including a warning about rabies. It's unclear why the tilde character ~ was used to hypenate ocean~terminal.Across the road more signs advise of the area's Neighbourhood Watch status, and warn you to clean up after your dog - despite the rabies warning forbidding the presence of animals. GENTING CASINO is visible through the gap.The Consitution St Exit frames Calton Hill and the Nelson Monument.Three cranes (previously photographed) stand at the east end of Ocean Drive. Through this one we can see Albert Dock and piles of metal and glass sorted for recycling.The Consitution St Exit once more but further back for a view up the middle of the street to Calton Hill.Further west along Albert Dock I noticed grass and weeds growing in cracks, ideal for infrared photography. (The cranes referred to above are at top right of this picture.)Windblown seeds never miss an opportunity to germinate in damp cracks between paving stones.Plant life reflects infrared light making it stand out.My favourite shot of opportunistic grass beside Albert Dock.A slightly wider shot showing more of nature's interactions with our constructs.Evidently Tom Dunn is a golf course architect with North Berwick and Leith Links connections.A little further west along Ocean Drive and behind the mouldering wooden pier Ocean Terminal looms into view. PureGym and Debenhams signs are visible.An Autographer picture of the shopping mall near to Elder Street.Continuing to the end of the passageway pictured above and exiting via the stairway at its end leads to Little King Street and Cathedral Lane.At the bottom end looking up. Picardy Place Roundabout is nearby.Another Autographer picture with a reflection of yours truly.Urbane furniture in Haddington Place has a gorilla at the front door.The walk down Leith Walk reveals some interesting art work. Not all of it may last over time.Following a walk around Newhaven and Western Harbour, I passed here on my way to Ocean Terminal.The same subject as the previous picture but the different standpoint and infrared image gives a rather different appearance, looking at first like three cigarettes sticking up in the air.In this second infrared view can be seen the shadow of the gate I poked my lens through.Undisturbed except by wind, the weeds sprouting from the cracks all curve to the left.Continuing east along Ocean Drive - which is misnamed because you can't drive along it. Also it doesn't lead to the ocean, only to an estuary leading to the North Sea.Looking west from the same point confirms you can't drive through here, though you could walk to the nearby Asda store.A little bit further east and nearer to Ocean Terminal.A multi-storey carpark at Ocean Drive.The section of Ocean Drive to the east of Ocean Terminal.The first of 3 infrared photos taken at the end of May 2015. This is a lane beside the Omni Centre in Leith Street / Leith Walk opposite the Picardy Place roundabout.Facing the opposite way. The ground is wet following a brief rain shower. A sunny spell soon gave way to a hail shower.The Omni Centre address is Greenside Row but that really refers to the seldom visited lane at the back, at the foot of Calton Hill. This infrared photograph shows 2 rather long stairways.A normal colour picture taken from the foot of the stairs pictured previously.The other stairway. 2½ years had passed since my previous visit to Western Harbour. This first picture was taken from near the LRT no.10 bus terminus. A solitary duck splashes about in the water.A similar view using my Pentax K7 camera.The gate stops 4 wheeled vehicles from proceeding further.Chancelot Flour Mill dominates the scene.A wide angle view showing Leith Docks far left followed by Ocean Terminal with Persevere Court and Citadel Court in front of Arthur's Seat and Salisbury Crags.As on my visit in November 2010 the security fence was wide open, so I just walked in.The skyline shows Salisbury Crags and Calton Hill.Same view but zoomed in on the Crags and Calton Hill.Zoomed in more for a closer look at the ship Hekla. On top of Salisbury Crags can be seen some walkers, only about 5 pixels high in this photo.Arthur's Seat looms behind. It's 5 kilometres away but looks nearer due to the long lens. As usual there's a big crowd of people at the summit.The Royal Yacht Britannia is moored in front of Ocean Terminal.Olympic Challenger is the name of this vessel which appears to have helicopter landing pads and impressive looking radar scanners under the spheres and domes.As well as 3 cranes there are what appears to be 2 gantries on the right which, when lowered, provide aerial walkways.More sea-going specialist equipment moored in Leith Docks.This building is the Forth Navigation Service & Harbour Office.A wider view across to the docks.Panned left to show the tidal barrier which keeps the water in Leith Docks as well as the Water of Leith quite far upstream past The Shore and Great Junction Street.In the forbidden zone, looking back at the broken fence.Looking back across the roadway in the previous picture towards Chancelot Flour Mill. The snowy Pentland Hills can be seen 12km away.From left to right: Persevere Court, Arthur's Seat, Citadel Court, Salisbury Crags.RESTRICTED AREA meaning you're likely to be arrested if you enter. There may be people with binoculars in the Forth Navigation Service & Harbour Office building...On closer inspection it looks like their security has a weak point above the concrete wall.The same tidal wall as in the previous picture but seen through a long lens on the seaward side. The third picture of the tidal wall shows the differing water levels more clearly. I'm not quite sure why there's a No Fishing sign. 'All your fish are belong to us.' (paraphrasing)A fence surrounds the old lighthouse to keep the glue-sniffers and scribblers out.A closer look at the lighthouse.The first of three pictures showing Edinburgh Castle with the snowy Pentland Hills in the background.Caerketton appears to loom over Edinburgh Castle, even though they're 7.4km apart.A slightly different vantage point gives another view.2014 October: Once again I returned to Western Harbour. Not a great deal had changed.Between the rusting railings and across the weedy field is a view of Chancelot Flourmill. Further away, the distictive silhouette of Arthur's Seat can be seen.Looking back at the flats from further out on the sea wall.Out at the end the old lighthouse still stands, protected by railings.Underneath there's a place for young people to smoke dope and spray paint.Ponds may have formed accidentally in the reclaimed ground but swans and ducks are taking advantage nevertheless. A fence provides some protection.Still currently 'the road to nowhere'. Straight ahead is that flourmill again. The profile of Arthur's Seat and Salisbury Crags is on the left horizon.Evidently the original plans were for houses and/or other buildings here, but nature has prevailed.The same redundant road junction as above but with the camera panned to the right to reveal the pond with ducks and swans.A long lens shot looking west towards Cramond Island and the Forth bridges (two and a bit). (Cramond Island is 4 miles away and the Forth Bridge is 8 miles away.)On several occasions whilst on Arthur's Seat or the Pentland Hills I've noticed Sunshine on Leith but not on Edinburgh. These pictures now seem topical due to the film. This photo September '09.Photographed from Salisbury Crags, looking over the top of shady Calton Hill.The same but zoomed in more. The caravan park across the Firth of Forth at Kinghorn is clearly visible.Infrared photoThis is a long lens photo from the Pentland Hills.Taken a few minutes later and zoomed back to show part of the Pentlands.A different view of the same scene. George Watson's school and part of Morningside are visible at the bottom of the picture.An HD widescreen wallpaper candidate. A monochrome background would show off Desktop icons rather well. Sunshine on Leith once more. The trees are on the west side of Bonaly Reservoir. The 3 steeples of St Mary's Cathedral can be seen in front of sunny Leith.Same standpoint but I used my infrared camera and zoomed in on Leith. The patch of sunshine drifted a bit to the left, leaving the flourmill in shade. Western Harbour is still sunny.It's mostly Western Harbour which has the sunshine. Wester Craiglockhart Hill is in the middle distance.York Place isn't Leith or Leith Street but it's where I got off the bus for another walk down Leith Walk. This is an Autographer picture, taken automatically according to an algorithm and a few sensors.I particularly like these shopfronts in Haddington Place. Another Autographer picture. Unless using a smartphone or tablet to find out what pictures it's taking, you just have to wait until getting back home to your computer.Small shops come and go. These shots of Elm Row are just snapshots of how they were in June 2015. I wasn't striving for photographic merit.Another example of these appealing shopfronts. Unlike iron railings elsewhere, these weren't chopped down for the Second World War effort.Elm Row at the east side of the street, Haddington Place on the west side.The last example of the two storey shop fronts when walking towards Leith.Harburn Hobbies has lasted longer than other shops hereabouts.A small segment of the giant LED screen on a gable end at Croall Place.Instead of building new developments on brownfield sites like this, Millers and others destroy meadows such as the Polo Fields at Colinton.An Autographer picture.A pub called Brass Monkey from the expression "It's cold enough to freeze the balls off a brass monkey."I like the excellent picture of Elvis Presley outside the shop Elvis Shakespeare.As far as I can remember, this bus stop was in Leith Street near the top of Nottingham Place, and I took the picture from the footbridge from the St James Centre.Leith Walk doesn't officially start at the Picardy Place roundabout. I think this used to be a tool shop called Wilkinsons. I bought an industrial diamond there in the '60s and other tools in the '70s.Assuming that the salon belongs to more than one barber then the apostrophe isn't misplaced.Hard to guess what wares lie beyond the closed shutters, but it's probably junk some of which might be brightly coloured.Once a cinema, this establishment at the foot of the walk is now a Wetherspoon pub.Pirrie Street is a cul-de-dac off Great Junction Street.The nearer buildings are new to Great Junction Street.Formerly Crabbie's building this appears to have been converted to houses.No longer the home of the Salvation Army but now the MOUNTAIN OF FIRE AND MIRACLES MINISTRIES. It would be a shame to tear down the art deco lettering.Huge rocks cover the yard at the Granite Factory in Bangor Road.These big rocks sure look heavy.This building has had a bit of a makeover in the form of the arches along its side.Attractive greenery along the side of a building in Burlington Street.House to let in the big converted building in Bonnington Road.Anderson Place is another example of old buildings being put to a new use.A metal fence made from the letters of Ocean Terminal. This Gormley statue is outlasting others in the Water of Leith. Use of a long lens makes Fife look much closer than it actually is.The water surface has been smoothed by the Smooth Reflection app downloaded directly into the camera. The usual technique is to use a very dark Neutral Density filter to force a long exposure but this method combines 128 separate stills avoiding colour shifts and other ND filter problems.Zoomed in to show the helicopter landing platform.The spheres purpose is to protect the radar scanners which rotate inside.A full HD shot showing some of the complicated mechanisms for laying undersea cables.A swan sailed into the scene in Albert Dock.Two swans appeared when they noticed me.I had no scraps to throw to the swans so they sailed away after I got this close up shot.You don't normally see caravans like this in Scotland. I'm guessing that it serves hot snacks and isn't used for touring or sleeping in.Revisited a month later. Two more photos of the Navica cable laying ship.I used the Sony Smooth Reflection app again.Not a particulary aesthetically pleasing building, purely functional.Same shot but zoomed in on the activity around a much smaller craft.A floating platform protected against impacts by the rubber tyres.Pelamis Wave Power was formed here in 1998.Dockside homes beside Ocean Drive.This and the next 4 images are stills from my bike's camera which has a wide angle fisheye lens.The public aren't allowed beyond the gate to Imperial Dock.From the same area as the previous photo but looking back towards Ocean Drive.At the other end of the row of terraced dockside homes is this Genting Casino. Genting is a peculiar brand name, not a verb as far as I can see. I don't think customers visit this establishment to 'gent'.The land to the left and right of this picture remains undeveloped and is currently used for vehicle parking.LeithAdded later, this earlier photo shows the ground being prepared after the previous bridge was removed. For a while, the old house above the site had uninterrupted views...March 2017 and the demolition of the St James Centre continues.A 36 bus took me to Ocean Terminal, avoiding the Leith Walk roadworks. (20th March 2017)No sign yet of the affordable housing planned for this area next to Ocean Terminal.Looking back at Ocean Terminal as I walked eastwards.Another look back as I approached Ocean Drive.Ocean Drive ahead behind the stone blocks.Ocean Drive with Victoria Quay on the left and Ocean Terminal in the distance.Entropy continues next to Ocean Drive.I was walking to Bath Road to see Ltd Ink Corporation, Kevin Harman's exhibition. Bath Road is on the north side of Salamander Street.Not an aesthetically pleasing photo, just a snapshot of Bath Road.Security is high next to the docks. Peering through the gates shows big, largely empty areas.Looking west from Bath Road.Concrete is prepared here.The entrance to Kevin Harman's exhibition was next to the bicycle parked on the left - but I missed it and walked round the entire building.Near the south east corner of the big building - Healthy Yummies.Walking back east again, still looking for Ltd Ink Corporation.Having found the entrance I entered the vast space.There's no doubt that the location added an extra dimension to the experience.'The booth provides visitors with an intimate, safe space in which to release their anxieties. These recorded admissions then enter an ever-expanding state of Collective Being (CoBe.co) online.'When I visited CoBe.co I got an Under Construction graphic.The text is legible but you may have to click the download icon to zoom in sufficiently.A recreation of the Shop That Never Opens in Nithsdale Road in Glasgow.A large image (1920 x 966) to improve legibility.

This infrared scene is like the start of a movie.Heading into the Western Harbour area.The sea wall and the Firth of Forth.Nearer the end where tidal locks maintain the docks at a constant water level.A normal colour photo follows this infrared one. Compare the difference.Little has changed since I first came here in 2010 to take photographs.Shortly after I took this photo I had to dash in the rain to the 10 bus terminus.Demolition proceeds slowly at St James Centre St James CentreWater is sprayed to damp down dust as the machine bites off big chunks of building.Zoomed inLooking up Elder Street,Zoomed in.I photographed this shop in Great Junction Street just before taking the photos on new, separate page Water of Leith June 2017.23rd June 2017 - demolition proceeds carefully because of nearby buildings.
