A former railway tunnel has been given a new lease of life as it is transformed into a photo exhibition.
For the next month, you can walk through the Rodney Street tunnel in Canonmills and browse 60 images taken around the capital.
All of the photos were taken by local photographers after a call out to capture their favourite spots or sights in the city in a bid to offer an insight into the places locals love that are beyond the usual tourist landmarks.
Over 100 pictures ranging from the pond at Inverleith Park to the bulls head on the former meat market at Tollcross were submitted.
Called Hold Me Dear: Four Cities, [Extra]Ordinary Places, the exhibition officially launches on Sunday, September 27 by Edinburgh design company Here + Now.
For this, the tunnel and King George V Park will have live music and local artists between 12pm and 2pm and a ‘cultural bike ride’ will also set off from the tunnel art project with art, poetry and musical stops along the route.
Exhibition curator Jenny Humberstone of Here + Now said: “What’s exciting about the project is it gives people a chance to share their personal thoughts on places that bring them joy in the city, that they might not otherwise express or talk about.
“This exhibition starts a conversation about the places that are meaningful to us in our local surroundings”.
The photo project is part of an international series of Hold Me Dear exhibitions which are also taking place in Copenhagen, Istanbul and Hamburg with all the entries being collated into an online album.
The tunnel was reopened in 2009 to pedestrians and cyclists, after 41 years of closure.
Local resident Akiko Kobayashi, who took a picture of the Grove garden for the exhibition, said: “The Grove is a temporary allotment on a brownfield site by the canal.
“Whatever the weather, I love busying myself with all the constant little jobs, filling the water tanks, planting out seedlings, building new things.
"It's my favourite place in the city and all the more precious because it won't last forever.”
The exhibition will be open 24 hours a day to the public for one month.
