Frances chose this portion of a mural in Leith, honouring one of the area's most well-known characters. The picture was taken by Anne. Frances admired the texture of the beard and the strong impression given of the man's expression from just part of the face. Anne also chose this picture.

Ruth also photographed the Arthur Williams picture, giving us some of its story. Arthur Williams was often seen at the foot of Leith Walk, where he lived as a homeless man for almost 30 years before being moved into a care home at the age of 81 in 2018. Shona Hardie is the local artist who painted this beautiful piece.

Both Ingrid and Neil chose this image from Ingrid. Neil found it very striking. He suggested cropping the left hand side to draw more attention to the dragon.
