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.
Plenty of street perfomers to see.
Next up, a local bunch of acrobats.
And some street portraits.
And finally, here’s where you can currently see our prints on display.
There’s a common theme amongst bloggers where they talk about a lack of recent posts and being busy with things, so here’s our contribution to this without the long discussion about it.
Firstly, here are a few recent images, which would have been in the now non-existent posts from the past wee while.
And a reminder of the Retina International Photography Festival 2017, now in the final weeks so a last chance to see the Royal Photographic Society exhibition at the Drill Hall which finishes tomorrow and the Emerging Talent and Shutter Hub exhibitions, both at Ocean terminal and which finish on Sunday 30th.
Finally, a short summary of what we have on show in Edinburgh at the moment.
Paul was delighted and flattered to be among the winning entries – listed below showing the category, the title and the photographer.
‘After Dark’ – ‘View Down Princes Street at Night’ – David Tomlins
‘Changing City’- ‘Canal Dreams’ – Sue Williamson
‘On the Inside’ – ‘Vaseline Hair Tonic’ – Paul Henni
‘Festivals and Event City’ – ‘Hogmanay’ – Mengqi Du
‘In all Weathers’ – ‘Snow on the Way’- Fiona Johnson
‘Fashion and Retail’ – New Wave Coffee Shop to a Tea – MJose Fernandez
Due to the response to the call for entries, there is also an additional mini-exhibition of the six winning entries and a further twelve runners-up as a set of eighteen canvas prints.
We went along for the opening event and were amazed at the size of Paul’s image under ‘S for Shopping’ within the exhibition. Lynn had to snap the proud photographer next to it.
And here’s the image itself – you can click on it to view it on our website if you want to see it in more detail (you can see it Full Screen there).

Our work is now on display in The Art Collective, downstairs at 139 Princes Street, just along from Frasers (or Binn’s Corner for those of us who remember) together with a number of other photographers and artists.
We have a range of framed and rolled prints; framed prints vary in size from tiny (7.5 x 7.5 cm) up to approx A3 and prices start at £25. All work can be purchased and taken away.
A handy moral guide, if that’s your thing, to financial rectitude, like sticking your money under the bed until a rainy day. Ah, so that’s where things went wrong with the UK banks, it’s always raining so they were always spending. Simple when you think of it, really. I am a financial genius.
