photo scavenger hunt visits some festivals

One of the things I love about Edinburgh is the range of festivals over the summer.  i love them for the buzz and energy and also for the photo opportunities.  I love them even more this year for supplying 3 items on Rinda’s summer photo scavenger hunt list.

The Fringe festival takes over a street in town and is filled with buskers, people in costume and some stalls selling lovely craft items (item 4).  I’m always fascinated by people who make fabulous creations from balloons

At the start of the Jazz and Blues festival there was a carnival in the middle of town which included people dancing (item 15)

And my local ‘Honest Toun’ festival week involves lots of horse riding, which means a horse (item 10)

Beautiful horses! I'm so sad that we missed the Fringe Festival when we were in Scotland.

Lucky you to have three photo ops in one place! Love the one of the balloon man! From that angle, it looks like he is wearing a hot dog on his head.

Great shots - I especially like the dancers because it's so colorful with the red outfits & the green trees & grass.

You've really managed to move your scavenger hunt on a lot during the festival! I feel nostalgic looking at the wonderful architecture ...

Plenty of fabulous scavenging fodder there! On our flying visit I picked up a Book Festival brochure (while we were in the university office getting a prospectus) and it looked fantastic
