Festival Photos 2012

Well, it's here at last! My favourite time of year in Edinburgh - festival time!

I had the chance to spend a couple of hours in town the other morning so I took along my camera to see what was going on. These are some of the photos. I never got the chance to spend much time there and the sky was very overcast which blew out any detail in it so not much of the wider views' I focussed mainly on the performers who were giving out flyers and trying desperately to attract attention for their shows in the main tourist area of The Royal Mile.

Leaflet anyone?

Enjoying the show

Press photographer in the way.

Sorry Alistair, the Fringe always makes me Cringe.

Hundreds of semi-dreadfull amateurs hoping to be discovered.

I can admire their youthful enthusiasm, but not their thespian expertise.

BTW, that song sounds just like an oldie from the Kinks.

Right on - the old Kinks standard covered by some others. Nice version I thought.
