Edinburgh Festival Parade 2016

Edinburgh festival parade

Welcome to Edinburgh in late July 2016 where the weather is overcast and a cold wind blows.

That’s why I lost patience and decided not to photograph the parade. But then on the walk up the hill I saw this troupe waiting to start.

I knew the arrangement would stand out. But the shot came out better than I expected.

    Thai? They look like they will be warm!


    1. Not sure where they are from – I could have asked them but I didn’t. I was only a couple of feet from them and just smiled and stuck the camera in their faces, then continued walking uphill.

      Yesterday they would have been fine – not too warm – today by comparison is much warmer and they would have been warm indeed.

    That’s such a great and cheerful shot! It makes the weather look not depressing at all. I hear locals rarely venture out during the Festival, so I’m glad you did and shared your photo!


    1. Princes Street was lined with people – but they may well have been tourists – the city is full of them!

        I don’t blame the tourists. It’s an awesome city. Even though it gets so crowded during the Festival.


  3. A typical day to stay inside: at a bar or a museum. Anything really.


    1. Or a typical day to look for places to move to.. 🙂
