Then and Now Take Two – Grassmarket

This is a regular series of blogs about photographs of the same place taken years apart. The first of the posts in this series was of a council building in Manchester. I always thought I should give then and now photographs a go. However what I have started to notice is that I have been doing Then and Now photographs unintentionally over the years and have been taking photographs of the same thing or place from the same view or perspective years apart. Now this has come to my attention I have started to intentionally take photographs of the same place.

Though I have visited Edinburgh lots of times, it has always been for work. My first holiday to Edinburgh was in 2021. Then we had a lot more time to explore the city and I took this photograph of Grassmarket. It was taken on a lovely sunny day in August 2021 using an iPhone 8.

So when I was back in a damp Edinburgh in March 2024, and was walking pass the same area, I took the same photograph using an iPhone 13.
