Really like the way in which you have included Rock House, the cottage at the rear left, in this image. As you, and many, will know, William Henry Fox Talbot announced his Calotype process in 1839. Soon afterwards he visited his friend David Brewster who was Principal of two of the colleges at the University of St Andrews at the time. DB introduced WHFT to Dr John Adamson, a medical doctor in St Andrews to teach him the process. Among others, JA in turn taught his younger brother Robert Adamson who advanced WHFT's process and leased Rock House in Edinburgh in 1843 as one of the very first photographic studios. There he teamed up with David Octavius Hill. We know them now as Hill & Adamson and in the few short years before RA's untimely death they produced iconic images. Sorry to ramble on..............I'd better stop :~} Great and meaningful photograph.

Superb textures and shapes. Dilapidated and so very eye pleasing...
