I went for a wander around Edinburgh's Royal Mile this afternoon. It's Festival time again and there are the usual strange people around. :lol: There was so many people getting in the frame or bumping my arm that I didn't get all that many, but some came out ok.

Looks like great fun. Thans for sharing.
Sometimes the swivel viewfinder like on the Pro1 would be very handy :-)

Many thanks for the kind comments. I'll definitely try to take some more shots before the festival ends.

I love Edinburgh! :) I was there last October and it's such a nice city (from what I saw). My Mum got me hooked on Rankin novels afterward.

I wish I could be there during the Festival time though. My old pipe band (Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders of Canada) played there in 2000, but that was 2 years before I joined them. I'll make it one day piping or otherwise!

Would love to see any more photos ;)

hey, have you ever gone to the Beltane festival & taken pictures there??

I'm also somewhat amused at your avatar, a picture of Sir Humphrey Appleby, as non-Scottish an icon as you can get while still being on the main island of the UK :D

Nice pics of Edinburgh, easily my favourite city in Scotland (though not my favourite place, gimme Skye for that :D)

Ah yes, good old Sir Humpy, I've always loved his smug expression. :)

Marvelous. I like that last one of the band ... I've only seen other bass of that style ... and it's the only one that's a little overexposed, probably because of the dark background. Wonderful images all.

Thanks Dwight, you're right, the last one is a bit overexposed. They're a German band apparently, though I can't remember the name (and if I did, I doubt I could spell it anyway!)
