MM3-24 The View from Elephant House Cafe in Edinburgh

We had lunch one day at the Elephant House Cafe in Edinburgh. The place is now famous because J.K. Rowling wrote most of her first Harry Potter book there. The cafe is located on George IV Bridge about a block away from the National Museum of Scotland and you can see Edinburgh Castle from the back room windows. I think the shot I took of the view from the first window on the right as you walk in from the front of the cafe offers the best view. I also liked the plant and elephant carvings on the window sill. This is my entry for Leanne Coles’s Monochrome Madness Challenge this week.

Don’t forget to drop by Leanne’s website this week to see what other photographers are doing in monochrome these days. Leanne uploads her Monochrome Madness weekly post on Thursdays in Australia (Wednesdays in North America and Europe).

I’ll have more photos of the Elephant House Cafe in my next posting.

    That’s a nicely treated image. We were recently in Edinburgh for a day while in Scotland on holiday. It’s over 35 years since I’ve been there and I had completely forgotten what a cool place it is – sunshine helped of course 😉

    Why is it that an image in monochrome often looks more beautiful? Is it that if the colors are stripped away we are left with essence? A very impressive photo indeed!
