A very quick late night post to sign off with tonight. I've been processing solidly for hours and need to hit the hay so I'll leave you with another Inside Edinburgh interior shoot. The guys who owned this beautiful Georgian property knew a thing or two about what they liked and their "antique" style was very much their own and I loved it. From retro bikes and cameras to snow shoes from Scott's era you don't truely learn this stuff it's already in you.
So yesterday was a rare moment indeed where I was able to pick up the camera and shoot a few shots just for me rather than a paying client. Don't get me wrong I love my clients and I love that they pay me for doing something I love and I still pinch myself every day for that. It's just that I have been so busy for what seems like forever that I can't remember the last time I shot for myself.
A few weeks ago I did have that chance but I had been so worn out with work that I decided to put down the camera, walk away and switch off. It was nice but only for a short while as all these ideas started going off in my head and I was itching to get back to it. I won't be doing that again.
What was nice about yesterday was that there was no need for a thread or specific treatment for the shots I just fired and processed at will. I discovered that it was a nice way to unwind and relax and much better than leaving the camera behind.
Processing again this evening so thought I'd check out the Boss' new album. Born in the USA was the first album I ever bought and I've had a bit of a love hate relationship with his work over the years since. He's at his best on this album. Everyone should listen to Wrecking Ball at least once. So far Death to my Hometown is the stand out for me. Go listen!
Update: Listen to all except track 9 "Rocky Ground". Skip, delete, ignore, don't download etc. It's awful.

I never thought that Interiors would become one of my specialisms as I always saw myself as a photographer of people more than anything but my photographic journey has taken me along a number of paths and I'm loving the surprises!
So, this is the first Inside Edinburgh post and I hope it gives you some food for photographic inspiration or Interior Design if nothing else.
