A community shows up

This week I received my booster vaccination, along with many more people in Leith.

As the new variant of the Corona Virus pandemic takes hold and spreads through out Scotland we have been asked to build up our defences with a booster injection.

I was at the Leith Community Treatment Centre and although I had an appointment I was very impressed by the amount of people who had turned up as walk ins, not knowing how long they were going to have to wait, but eager to have their top up vaccination.

The staff in side were lovely too, organising, checking and dealing with everyone speedily and with a smile. Once in I was out again within 20 minutes and left with a glow of protection, and of doing the right thing!

Queuing for the chippy

I love this view through a walkway tunnel towards Newhaven Harbour and in the far distance the iron gas works structure in Granton.

I was down by the harbour the other night for a walk around and noticed this view of the silhouetted queue for The Fishmarket chippy just around the corner.

I admit I didn’t wait in line this time but the aromas coming from the restaurant were very tempting. I will return soon for some chips on the shore ­čÖé

Social distance sketching

Catching the ques in watercolour outside the shops in the sunshine.

With the shops beginning to open again after Lock Down there is lots of queing to be done as we still need to keep our 2 metre distance from each other.

Today I was queing outside a DIY shop in Craigleith, Edinburgh and while standing in the sun caught this view of the people in front of me.

I only had a limited pallet as I ran out of water to rinse my brush but I quite like the limitations, and how that causes colours to link to each other and make the piece more illustrative.

Remember to use your queing time well, dont get frustrated and instead accept that this is how it is for now, and why not doodle your time away!
