Edinburgh Fringe – Sunday 13th August

Well, we don’t record the radio show at the weekend, so today’s link is to our children’s interviews. In the past they only covered children’s shows, but they’re teenagers now, so download the podcast now to hear which shows they particularly liked.

Since we weren’t in the Rose Theatre today, I took the camera out for a wander. I started off at the Mercat Stage on the Royal Mile to see the Sing in the City Aw Blacks perform a few crowd-pleasing numbers. Unfortunately I was a bit late getting there (buses during the Fringe never get anywhere fast!) so I was behind a few heads. I did my best though. As always, only a selection of photos are below, but all can be found on my Flickr page where you can download them for fair use under Creative Commons.

Since I had my camera with me, and Ewan and I were having our annual one-night-out at Fringe shows, I had the opportunity to take a few photos in the breaks between shows. Lighting was tricky everywhere, but I think I did ok!

Watching the world go by on the Royal Mile, playing with longer exposures, but never expect a Frenchwoman to talk without gesticulating 😛

Yeah… when setting a 3 second shutter speed, make sure it’s not actually 30 seconds!
