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.
Just received my excellent Permajet Print courtesy of The Imaging Warehouse, after being chosen for the Amateur Photographer Picture of the Week (#APPicoftheweek) recently, so Lynn took a shot of a happy photographer…
When you find a great place to stay on holiday, the test of how good it is in reality is usually whether you return or not. In our case, we’ve been back to this place many times and every time find the combination of location, hosts, food, wine, accommodation, general ambience and, more recently, options for photography as excellent as in previous visits.
Located in the Vosges mountains in Lorraine region of France, on the border with Alsace, the Auberge de La Poulciere provides a perfect central base for walking, skiing (in winter, um, obviously) and visiting the local parks, lakes and mountains.
It is run by Jocelyne & Michel Bouguerne-Arnould, the former an English teacher and the latter an excellent chef. Anyone who knows us will know that good quality food and drink, ideally offset by lots of long walks, are what we like and we like this place a lot. Using the best of local ingredients including herbs picked freshly as the chef requires them, they provide a very friendly welcome and exceptional value for money. Featuring local produce, the menu includes a good selection of Alsatian wine and the local Munster cheese often makes an appearance (which Lynn particularly enjoys!).
