As part of the enLIGHTen festival in Edinburgh, this projection mapping display is being shown on the Royal Society of Edinburgh building on George Street (just above Lakeland).
It’s a pin-sharp, colourful animated display built around quotes from Adam Smith. It’s the first projection mapping display in Scotland used for an arts project (they’re occasionally done for commercial purposes; it’s really impressive and ambitious for an arts project, which you’ve got to admire).
I wouldn’t recommend running past it because it’s several minutes long and you’d get cold in your running kit. But do go - from 6pm-midnight until 18 March.
While you’re there, check out the displays at either end of George Street: Charlotte Square and St. Andrews Square.

Arthurs Seat in the haar 1 on Flickr.
One from the archive. Fog over Edinburgh seen from the grand old height of 208m, running over the Braid Hills. The whole city is hidden.
That’s Arthur’s Seat poking up through the haar (note for non-Scottish people: a.k.a. sea fog, “fret”).
Who says you have to go up an Alp to experience the thrill of a cloud inversion?

Today I’m doing a half marathon that’s run over 7 laps of a course.
I don’t do races that have laps. The last time I did 7 laps of anything, I was wandering round the house looking for my keys.
Rosie Smith and St Anthony’s Chapel on Flickr.
Let’s get started. This is Rosie Smith running the Great Edinburgh Cross Country in 2012, in Holyrood Park in Edinburgh.
That’s St Anthony’s Chapel in the background - or what’s left of it.
GB & NI’s Rosie Smith contours along the side of Haggis Knowe in Holyrood Park during the Great Edinburgh Cross Country. Great place for a race.
