In Pictures: Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2013
As you may know, I love shooting documentary photography and I love a good festival so Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the ideal place for me and my friends to have a good time. This was my first year taking in the Ed Fringe experience and thankfully I was able to share it with friends and fellow Ed Fringe newbies Levi and Ross. I think it’s fair to say that we went with the flow of the fringe; laughing, drinking and attending impromptu performances and shows.
Fortunately I remembered that I was also there to make the most of getting some new street photography shot at Edinburgh Festival Fringe. The characters of Ed Fringe really do make for wonderful photographic subjects.
I’ll never forget the street performer who climbed to a third floor window above the Royal Mile, wearing just a pair of red boots and yellow underpants, as the finale of his performance. There are too many memories to mention from our time at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2013. All I can really say is if you’ve never been, you have to go and experience it for yourself.
