I love the festivals, but they don't half slow down the traffic. It's only a Tuesday too. Still, it gave me plenty of time to grab a blip from the bus.
The first "road closed" sign and barriers seem a bit half hearted compared to the later crash barrier. At least these ones have been decorated in the spirit of the fringe. There's a crush there at weekends at the best of times - I can't even imagine the effect the two tiny pedestrian access arches must be adding to that!
I've not had a chance to wander down the royal mile with my camera yet this year - I must do something about that at some point. Hopefully when it's not too busy! Chance would be a fine thing...
