Don’t you just love a beautiful statue!

I can’t help but love statues and the more abnormal in nature the statue the better.

In Edinburgh on the royal mile is a statue of David Hume by Alexander Stoddart. The right foot big toe sticks out and was rubbed by philosophy students to absorb some knowledge. This became a superstition and you can see the big toe is bright in colour compared to the rest of the statue.

Back at the Robert Burns birthplace museum area. No statues, I just like these two photos. Around the corner from the museum in the Brig O’Doon and this is view looking north west of the Doon river and bridges.
