Scottish Myths and Legends – The Truth Revealed
I finally managed to develop my photos from Scotland last week and left them to dry. It is part of my custom to have a little peek at the negative to see if there is anything of interest on the rolls. I just look for patches of light and dark or familiar shapes but this time something jumped out at me, just a few thin slivers of light area on the negatives. My hands were shaking as I inserted them into the negative holder.
I lived in Scotland for a number of years and was lucky to see many wonders of the land. People will be familiar with the Haggis or “The Great Chieftain o’ the Puddin Race”. A small creature that roams the hillsides of Scotland and has adapted to its environment by having only three legs all of different lengths. This has meant that all the Haggis that you see in supermarkets have been captured on lowland plains where its leg arrangement is a handicap and the poor animal when trying to escape runs in small circles making them easy pickings. I was at one time involved in the yearly cull of the Haggis population, I was young and foolish. It is one of the reasons that I am now a committed “Friend of the Haggis” I have photos of Haggis in the wild but I dare not publish them in case it aids in their persecution.
I lived on the shores of Lake Ness and have seen a Plesiosauria in the wild. I tried to get a photo but the camera jammed and the shot came out blurry and unusable. It is unfortunate but I am sure there are plenty of perfect photos of the Lake Ness monster so my poor efforts would do nothing to add to the overwhelming weight of evidence of the existence of the Monster.
But what I found on my haphazardly developed roll of film from my recent trip is likely to turn the world on its head, I am typing this worried that Scottish comedians will try and hunt me down for what I have managed to capture on film. If news of my discovery gets out it will ruin the punchline to nearly every joke at the Edinburgh fringe festival. I managed to take a photo of a shadow in Scotland. I know you may not believe me but I swear it is real. I was looking at a wall and all of a sudden it got a little warmer and the shadow of the lamp appeared. I had my back to the sun when it peaked out from behind the clouds but I am sure it was real, there can be no other explanation.
Sunlight is real and for too long the people of Scotland have been led to believe that it was made up. It is as real as Haggis and the Lake Ness monster. The Scotch have a right to know the truth and I will not be silenced.
