‘Edinburgh – Our City’ – Photographic Prints & Etchings at Dazzle@Dovecot 2016 Contemporary Jewellery Exhibition
This is one of a series of posts showing the image selections for our exhibition, ‘Edinburgh – Our City’, which includes a wide range of etchings and prints showing our take on our home city, Edinburgh.
There are lots of characters out there, from locals to visitors to those in one of the myriad shows on at the moment. So far we’ve managed to avoid running into anyone, although brake lights on some of our tourists friends would help avoid potential trouble.
It was David Bowie’s birthday on Friday (and Roy Batty’s), so we went along to the very fine Citrus Club in Grindlay Street for a live show with performances from FINGER HALO ( Ft. Jo Callis, from the Human League and The Rezillos, on guitar ), A LAD IN SPAIN ( mysteriously compiled from a local band), THE NORMANS ( ft. Norman Rodger ex. TV21), and Jeremy Thoms from the Cathode Ray.
I took a few shots in between bouts of jigging about and the odd slurp of booze. Shots taken a bit at random, but here you go anyway. A fun night was had by all.
In case you haven’t come a cross them, Safehouse are an Edinburgh based band who play regular gigs around Scotland, specialising in a fantastic blues / rock /psychedelic mix that’ll get you going.
With additional drummer and conga player, they did an Allmans Project set over a few nights as part of the Fringe here in Edinburgh and bloody good it was too. The line-up was Gary Mees, Gary Davidson, Sky Tusk, Ali Petrie, Andrew Stirling, Mike Park, Sean Scott and John Bruce. The latter two being former members of Blues’n’Trouble – previously posted about when they had their 30th anniversary.
So here’s a set of shots we took…
And a couple of out-takes.
First up, demonic eyes in the extra fine keyboard player, Mr Ali Petrie.
And a strange transmogrification occurring – Mr Sky Tusk, yer vocalist extraordinaire.
Here’s another selection of our shots taken on the High Street of Street Performers and people from Fringe Shows. As it is the last week of the Festival, this is a longer post to try to get everyone in who let us takes shots of them – thanks!
We lost track of some people in the avalanche of flyers, but hopefully the captions are right. If you spot yourself or someone you know, let us know and we can add their name.
