The weather was noticeably worse this year. I’m not made of sugar though, so as long as the camera was looked after then I was out there. The only issue is that everyone else takes cover, so less people on the streets for me to photograph. I like a challenge.

If it wasn’t for real life I’d get a lot more photography done. It seemed like I’d never get out in Edinburgh over August but some careful calendar management did the trick. In fact I managed to get out a good deal more than I thought. There was even a fair amount of evening photography as well, which isn’t something I usually do.
It’s taken a while to process the film and get the pics online, but we are finally here. Photographs from the streets of Edinburgh during August, the Festival month.
Treading the pavements with my trusty camera bag is quick to throw up the odd niggle or two. One of these is the bag’s contents. I’m a “just chuck it in” kind of guy, fine for the bigger stuff (fleece, hat, juice bottle, magazine, camera) but the wee stuff gets lost. A roll of film, even in it’s neat plastic container, is wee stuff.
Back to the streets of Edinburgh, where some folks grab a seat wherever they can.
