Walking into town
Yesterday we went to the exhibition of American Impressionists at the Modern Art Gallery. I'm ashamed to say that we had never heard of quite a few of them, including the splendidly-named Childe Hassan and John Henry Twatchtman. They seemed jolly good to us, just as good as the French ones (though we wouldn't claim to be experts).
Then we walked into town through the top part of Dean Village, enjoying the autumnal air.
Here you can see the backs of some of the New Town houses. They must have a good view.
That red makes a statement.
It's always intriguing to look through narrow spaces at a sudden view.
These red roofs are almost worthy of Switzerland.
Up to the New Town itself: Georgian terraces.
This is the Dean Bridge, over which people occasionally jump, alas. It's a long way down.
