Photographer's Note

At the top of Calton Hill in Edinburgh, Scotland is the beginning of the National Monument. Construction began in 1822 and was designed as a replica of the Parthenon in Athens, Greece. Intended to be a memorial to those who died in the Napoleanic wars, funds to build the monument ran dry and the monument was never completed.
