Look up Look down at the Fringe

I love August in Edinburgh when the city fills with performers from all over the place.  I enjoy going to a range of shows and I also enjoy the people watching.  A section of the Royal Mile becomes the gathering place with buskers and performers handing out leaflets and trying to catch the attention of potential audiences.  I captured these two for my look up and down pair this week

up-down-fringe

It was a hard choice picking just 2 – other possibilities were

* a sleeping man with a plastic chicken on him

* jugglers

* a white ‘statue lady’

* people dressed as a blue whale

* a man with a fox tail and ears

* various balloon creations (they all seem to involve more balloons and twists this year)

* a ‘princess’ wowing a young girl

* flags and banners

I do love the madness of the Fringe and the creative buzz.

The Fringe gets quite a bit of attention down here - along with the comedy festival. No doubt you had many colourful choices!

Gosh, I can feel the buzz and crackle from here! That second one spooks me slightly!

I love these!!!
This week I'm hoping to get back to blog reading and commenting. An injured leg and stomach virus sidelined me a bit I'm afraid! I enjoyed catching up today!
