Our 2017 Selection of #Edinburgh #Festival #Photography

A selection of some of the images we took during the Edinburgh Festivities. As ever, lots going on, too much to try and see, random things happening on the street and plenty of photographic scenes to capture.

First up, the official Edinburgh International Festival opening, celebrating 70 years of the Festival and Fringe, including ‘Bloom’.

And some performers from The Wedding Reception out in Princes Street Gardens, looking the part as Bride, Groom, Mother of the Bride and embarrassing Father of the Bride.

And finally, here’s where you can currently see our prints on display.

henni.photo Prints and Etchings at 3 locations

Currently, our prints and etchings are on display at McDonald-Greene Jewellers in Bruntsfield,  at Dundas Street Framers and in the Art Collective at 139 Princes Street.  All work is for sale and ready to take away, but please feel free just to go and have a look and tell us what you think. Nothing beats seeing a print on the wall – you get a much better idea of it than on a screen.
