The days are long during the summer months in Scotland.  And the evening shadows seem to creep up the buildings at a painstakingly slow pace.  This gives ample time to watch as one city —  a city of shadows — slowly consumes the scrubbed gray limestone buildings of the other.  Affectionately known as Auld Reekie, Edinburgh was once the color of cinder when black soot billowed from every smokestack in town.
