Edinburgh Urban Lips

“Always carry a camera, it’s tough to shoot a picture without one.” — Jay Maisel

I’m a big fan of photographer Jay Maisel. Jay always has a camera with him and takes pictures every day.

In a sense, I always have a camera with me, the one that comes with my phone. But the image quality I get from it is a far cry from that of my “proper camera”.

I was reminded of the importance of this a while back when I was wondering about the streets of Edinburgh. You never know when you are going to see something interesting. I cannot count the times when I saw something that would have made a good photograph but had left my “proper camera” at home.

Fortunately I had a good camera with me when these “electric” lips in an Edinburgh shop window caught my attention.

Edinburgh is full of great photographic opportunities. Some obvious, some less obvious like these lips in a shop window.
