Bye for now to the Royal Museum...



One of the last shots of the wonderful main hall of the Royal Museum (part of the National Museum of Scotland on Chambers Street) before it shut for a major overhaul - the building is now closed and will reopen in 2011... The museum organised a weekend of events prior to the closing date and, not surpisingly, it was pretty busy even at 10.30am. Unfortunately, the fish ponds - loved by many Edinburgh people - are set to go.

Your blog has been included in our guide.

Around The World with Daily Photoblogs Old and New is a brief history of the City Daily Photoblog movement and a guide to sites around the world.

The criterion for inclusion here is that photographs mainly from a specific geographical location have been posted at dated intervals, and archives are searchable by date. Although originally arising from the CDPB lists this is an independent publication. Inclusion here does not imply that a blog is officially a CDPB.

Please keep us informed of any changes to your details.

Gosh. That's a long time to wait.
The work however, looks very intricate and complicated. Good that you got one last look in there !

What a beautiful building, Dido! Nice lighting as well.

I saw your boats: that's what you get when the tide is low...!
