Forth Rail BridgeEdit

Just want to say I really like your Forthrailbridgefromsouthqueensferry.jpg photo.-- 07:40, 4 March 2009 (UTC)

I came here to say the same thing. Why don't you nominate it as a Featured Picture? Tomlock01 (talk) 20:23, 4 August 2010 (UTC)

Fringe programmeEdit

Hi George - we are putting on an exhibition this Fringe in the Scott Monument and wondered if we could use your image for the Fringe programme entry?


Cramond causeway pictureEdit

Your picture of the "teeth" between Cramond village and Cramond island only shows a very small part of the causeway in the lower left hand corner. The Causeway is hidden behind the teeth. I believe you will find that what you have photographed is an anti-submarine defence. A cable was run across the top of the teeth to discourage surface vessels. When you return to the location, look to the west of the teeth and do not be misled by the sewer pipe which as a child was often used to cross to the island. The causeway if further west and follows its own line. I can testify that the sands to the east are treacherous.

Forth BridgeEdit

Good morning George,

I am presently working on a project on Fife and wonder if can use your wonderful photgraph of the old bridge. Proper credits would, of course, would be given.

Regards, James (Jimmydenham)-- 06:09, 25 July 2011 (UTC)

I'd like to use your photoEdit

Dear George, I'd like to use your photo of the Firth of Forth Bridge, of course with attribution. Could you please contact me briefly at cwolf @, so I can explain the project directly to you? Thank you very much, Christian Wolf CWOLF (talk) 16:31, 13 March 2012 (UTC)
