It had to be Hoy

GoldenPostboxWEBI wandered up the Royal Mile this lunch time, soaking up the sunshine and enjoying the busy, visitor filled cobbled streets of Edinburgh’s Old Town. I was looking around for some inspiration, something to catch my eye and scribble down in my sketch pad.

And then I saw it, obvious really considering the great man is in all the papers today, having just retired from competitive cycling.  Sir Chris Hoy’s second golden postbox, gleaming in the midday sunshine in the centre of Hunter Square. His other golden postbox is located on the corner of Hanover Street and Princes Street. Both in recognition of his gold medals at last years London Olympic Games.

A true legend Sir Chris has inspired a generation, may his two postboxes stay golden for many a year to come.
