Summer photo scavenger hunt–instalment 10

One of the questions on my mind this summer has been ‘what makes a pirate look like a pirate’?  prompted of course by the item on Rinda’s scavenger hunt list.

This is what I had in mind

But unfortunately it is a statue I walk past and not the specified ‘person dressed as a pirate’.

On the first day of the Fringe I was hopeful of finding pirates and spotted these two

but was not convinced – seemed to be swashbucklers and lacking the skulls, missing limbs and parrot.

In the last week of the Fringe I saw that a group were advertising Pirates of Penzance so set off to find one of the performers in costume. 


Not what I had expected but I asked him (Nathan) and he said he was in the pirate chorus.  And he is holding the flyer for the show


So I’m using him as my pirate.
