Concrete Jungle

What always delights me in Edinburgh is it's various forms of street art and projects. This particular one caught my eye (and well.. probably everyone's who was visiting Ed): vibrantly painted sculptures of endangered animals were scattered around the city. According to the plaques they were all up for auction, with all proceeds going to protecting these endangered species. Also miniature figurines of these sculptures are available for purchase online. I find this such and inspired and creative way to raise awareness for an important cause!

Here are snaps of some I spotted:











More pictures from Edinburgh and Aberdeen coming up SOON :)
