Alternative nights out in Edinburgh, the dark hours

Silent watcher oversees late night clubbers and street goings on outside nightclub in Edinburgh’s Cowgate.

Shot details in brief

The location is set in the Cowgate area of Edinburgh, Scotland. A late evening post gig shot, I had to go hand held with this one, we had just left the establishment next door where my sons band were gigging. As we headed of into the dark of night that eerie feeling of being watched swept over me. On looking up there was an ominous dark figure lurking in the shadows of the curtain. I just had to get a shot, I felt a bit uncomfortable with his fixed stare watching over me, I didnt want to get too close!
