Photographer's Note

Well, the annual Edinburgh International Festival and its associated "Fringe" concluded last night after events which again saw record attendances and ticket sales which this year have passed £3million mark for the first time.

One of the highlights of central Edinburgh during Festival time is the amazing vibrancy of the city and the wonderful variety of street entertainers with magicians, human "statues", comedians and jugglers all vying for attention - as well as your money!

But amidst all this frenzy there are a few more serious entertainers. This pretty young girl was standing on a bollard outside St. Giles' Cathedral playing her violin most beautifully and I was totally enthralled. Whether it was her fine playing of Mozart or the fact that her beautiful blue eyes gazed at me so enchantingly through my viewfinder, I'm not sure. Probably a combination of both.
