O ye’ll tak’ the high road
and Ah’ll tak’ the low road
And Ah’ll be in Scotlan’ afore ye
Fir me an’ my true love will ne’er meet again
On the bonnie, bonnie banks o’ Loch Lomon’.
“The Bonnie Banks o’ Loch Lomond”, is a well-known traditional Scottish song first published in 1841 in Vocal Melodies of Scotland. The original composer is unknown, as is definitive information on any traditional lyrics. This well known chorus, while not original, is included here as it is most familiar …according to Wikipedia. ***
These people are on the move. For once, I was standing still to take the shot. 🙂
When I go out photographing the street, mostly I use my Leica but other cameras share in the limelight. I came across this location a while ago on a day when I was only carrying a film camera, my Olympus trip 35. I just took a casual shot, and when reviewing the image, I resolved to come back another day with my Sony A7R and try a different composition. That result is below. More definition with the digital Sony, but more character with film.

***Personally I have no idea what language that verse is in, so here’s an English translation 🙂
Oh you’ll take the high road
and I’ll take the low road
And I’ll be in Scotland before ye
For me and my true love will never meet again
On the bonnie, bonnie banks of Loch Lomond.
