Ian Tomkinson, 57 (L), and Jo Tomkinson, 48, poses for a photograph beside their house near the village of Sandness on the Shetland Islands April 1, 2014. They both plan to vote no in the upcoming independence vote with Ian saying "we're being asked to vote for something for which we've really no idea what the outcome will be." Twelve hours by ferry from the Scottish mainland, hundreds of miles from Edinburgh and closer to Oslo than London, the windswept Shetland islands have their own aspirations about Scottish independence. Some of the 23,000 inhabitants even want their own. Many Shetlanders see the Sept. 18 vote on whether Scotland should end the 307-year-old union with England as an opportunity to gain control over local services and a share of revenues from the oil pumped from the North Sea.
