Still Frozen – Indian Ink in a Watercolour Moleskine

My son, Ewan, stays in Stockbridge towards the north side of Edinburgh. Margaret and I used to stay there, just after we were married, and I like to visit the old place which is known affectionately to the locals as “Stockaree”. In Inverleith Park there is a boating pond and I asked Ewan if the swans had returned. His answer, “Still frozen” and this is what he meant. This is copied from a photograph taken at dusk a couple of days ago, looking towards Edinburgh’s New Town.
