Edinburgh in Black & White

I'm currently writing a mystery set in Edinburgh. The characters in my first novel, Artifact (released August 2012), make a quick stop in Edinburgh on their quest to find a missing treasure. I love Edinburgh, so I was always disappointed that they didn't get to spend longer in the city. Now that I'm working on a novella with the same characters, I realized Edinburgh would be the perfect place to set this particular mystery story.

Going through my old Edinburgh photographs from over the years, I noticed that I shot a lot of black & white film there. The photos below are all scans of black & white negatives. It's a mysterious city, making it the perfect place for both black & white photos and for a mystery story.
