Random Fringeing

Well, the Fringe, Book Fest and Film Festival are all over, although the official International Festival runs to this weekend (and ends with the annual huge fireworks display above the Castle). The city has that day after the party feeling – still a lot of tourists around (well, it is Edinburgh!) but it’s a lot quieter; I haven’t seen a single person on stilts or had to force my way past Kabuki players at all. The big entrances and displays outside Fringe venues are all being taken down and all that’s left are the thousands of fly posters for shows now finished, slowly peeling and curling from the walls in a sad way, all over for another year. Here are some random pictures from the Fringe:
