Busier Than Ever – Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2012

Superb!! – 25 days of Events with over 2,600 shows from 47 different countries

Edinburgh, the Scottish Capital was “buzzing” this year, in August, with the annual Fringe Festival.

An amazing diversity of shows to suit all tastes ranging from Shakespeare to light comedy; classical to rock music accompanied by traditional “scottish” cuisine from the many local bars and restaurants. (Even haggis and neeps, deep fried mars bars or the usual fish supper, were on the menu, if that’s what you fancied)

I love Edinburgh, particularly at this time of year when the city is busy with tourists and “locals”, enjoying the “banter” of the performers and audiences,  enjoying the culture and “soaking-up” the atmosphere.

The Fringe is an opportunity for me to indulge in my photography, to capture portrait images of the “street” performers advertising their shows and to talk with some of the interesting “characters” taking part.

GI Girls at The Fringe

This year I visited the Fringe 3 times. On my last visit, my “better half” and I met up with some of my “old” school friends and rounded off a great day, with a delicious meal in a local restaurant, with a nice bottle of wine and good company.

Looking forward to August 2013.
