I've been photographing East Neuk cottages along the Fife coastline. Though I could have chosen a better day as it was very overcast with no blue skies.

 

Many of the cottages seem to have been built by builders who never used a right angle! They are mostly built on steep sloping confining streets leading down to the sea.

 

You'll also notice their quirky little windows and well worn steps.  Along with a rainbow of coloured windowsills matching the fishing boats moored up down in the harbour. See more of East Neuk coastline here. 

Built on wibbly wobbly cobbled streets

    I didn't realize you lived in Scotland. I LOVE these shots, it looks like such a beautiful place to live! I just took a trip to Ireland, now that I am back America seems so boring…

    Your photos made me think of all the High streets that we saw several years ago in Scotland and Ireland. I loved the quirkiness of the buildings. I am missing it. Valerie
