Photographer's Note

Festival time is once again taking over the city of Edinburgh, something which happens every year during the month of August, and again the Royal Mile is filled with musicians, jugglers, comedians, magicians and dancers to entertain the crowds and tempt them to attend many of the Festival's activities and shows.

Here a "human statue" takes a little time off from standing motionless and juggles with a ball to the amusement of onlookers.

The Edinburgh International Festival brings top class performers of music (especially classical music), theatre, opera and dance from around the world to perform. The festival also hosts a series of visual art exhibitions, talks and workshops.

The Edinburgh Festival Fringe ("The Fringe") is the World's largest arts festival, with the 2013 event spanning 25 days totalling over 2,695 shows from 47 countries in 279 venues. Established in 1947 as an alternative to the Edinburgh International Festival, it takes place alongside the more formal Festival.
