      Phwoar! (I have no idea where it is, though).

      It's probably about 10 minutes walk from Valvona & Crolla (the main branch, on Leith Walk) - if that helps at all.

      This is probably one of those surprisingly beautiful things that people walk past all the time - or in this case, walk straight over - without ever noticing. I'm sure I'm not the only one though!

      I saw this on Regent Road, and it looks pretty similar. Even if it's not the cracked lamp-cement, is it correct to say this picture is of cracked cement holding a streetlamp up?

      Rusty cement

      Good call kyz! It's about half a mile from there, and I don't think it has a lamp in it, but it may well have done once. It looks like that's almost certainly the same material.

      Is it on London Road or Broughton Street?

    12. 0olong 70 months ago | reply

      Veerry close! But no.

      OK, well I don't think it's Hillside Crescent because there's only the tinyiest drop of cement around there. I had a good look around Forth Street and there's plenty of cement, a little bit of rust, but not both.

      The best kind of photograph.

      I picked this photo as one of my all time favorite 8 photos in Flickr's 8 years of existence. Thank you amazingness.

      Thanks so much Jared, I didn't see this comment until just now so I was very confused for about an hour when piles of people started adding this as a favourite! I've admired your generative art and photography for years - without noticing that you'd also co-founded Etsy - so the tribute means a lot to me. :)

      You are most welcome Fergus! The admiration is mutual.
