Oh, Dear Boy, I Wanna Follow You

So bold and fine, I’ve known you for some time

To listen to the original version, click!

I’m quite obsessed with this for now, also because it’s somewhat fitting for the hauntingly beautiful yet ostentatiously festive winter month of December. Not to mention it seems to be a very suitable accompaniment to the frosty pictures I’ve included below.

So I’ve finally started working on the countless number of pictures I took whilst I was living in the UK, and it’s practically a colossal, incredibly significant, and absolutely celebration-worthy achievement in and of itself, as I’ve unedited pictures dated quite atrociously back to —— believe it or not —— three entire years ago.

And since it’s winter in the UK right now —— which I do miss terribly so —— and very, very close to Christmas, I decided to start off with a few pictures of the beautiful city of Edinburgh in the snow (circa December 2010), a breathtakingly magnificent sight to behold on a chilly winter morning,

Oh, dear boy, I wanna follow you
You’re a wild boy, I am a wild girl, too













Encompassing the beginning of Princes Street just off North Bridge, where The Balmoral sits majestically, overlooking the bustling heart of the city like a rightful, imposing guardian of the capital, and a bit of St. Andrew Square and Street, a gorgeous central area where you can sup on steaming hot coffee al fresco whilst facing the impressive headquarters of the Royal Bank of Scotland. How I do miss all this beauty. Southeast Asia is beautiful, but there’s nothing like waking up to a fresh white coat of snow and soft sunshine in the early hours of the morning, even better when accompanied by a hot, heartwarming beverage.

I’d love to call these series of snow-coated pictures Snowscapes, a wintry spin-off from my usual Travelscapes album. It’d be lovely to compile and give all of the pictures I took during the blistering winters their own identity, in a sense. Wrapping it up —— here’s to progress, and many, many more snow-topped pictures to come.

Happy Christmas Eve, all! /pops (preemptive) champagne
