Edinburgh in Miniature

Lately I’ve been a bit obsessed (OK, completely enamored) with tilt-shift photography.  In case you’re not familiar with it it’s a photographing technique that make your photo subjects look dreamy and miniature.  There are some fantastic examples  here and here.  I’ve been playing around a bit with some tilt-shift softwares and decided to put up a Miniature Edinburgh Series.  I hope you enjoy!

So yesterday was my birthday and it was an absolutely lovely day – how could it not when my first gift from S was this?



They're just so pretty!

OK, OK, I'll stop taking pictures and just enjoy them!


S and I spent nearly the entire day together doing fun things, enjoying a sunny and surprisingly mild day.  We saw The King’s Speech, wandered around town, did a bit of shopping, enjoyed some delicious meals, and just enjoyed being together.  While I’m not too thrilled about the whole 31 thing – I don’t like uneven or prime numbers when it comes to age – and I did notice a deepening line on my forehead last night it hasn’t freaked me out too much.

Anyway – thank you to everyone who emailed me a birthday greeting!  I felt very loved yesterday and am so grateful for my dear friends and family.
