It’s August, the year is turning it’s thoughts to autumn but there is always a late blossoming or two. One of which is the Edinburgh Festival and the Fringe. It’s a regular date on my calendar, who would want to miss the sheer madness of the preview stages on the Royal Mile and the flyer distributors, more tenacious than any Highland midgie ( a very small insect but with a bite like that of a great white shark ) Obviously due to “That” the Festival and the Fringe have been pale shadows of their normal selves but life is returning and with it so are the pogoi-ng sword swallower’s, the fire eating penguins and the cycling, Elvis Presley impersonating monks. Not all of them are made up, can you guess which one is real?
Here’s a selection of shots from previous visits, I’m hoping to get up there before the end of the month.
