I managed a sneak preview as they were setting up and testing today so have not yet experienced the full show with the lights sequenced to original music to make the figures appear to move. This sounds like something not to be missed!
Some of the figures look like rugby players which may reflect the upcoming Rugby 6 Nations – could this be Stuart Hogg preparing for Saturday’s clash against the auld enemy?
Or perhaps basketball players here…
Or even the Thin White Duke making his moves…
These ones look more like gymnasts.
This will no doubt be clearer when animated.
Scottish country dancing maybe?
2 stick-people chilling while watching the dancing.
I have just switched from a Nikon (D3200) to a Fujifilm (XE-2) camera and now getting used to new buttons and dials. As we had some rain, I was doing soggy testing (me, not the camera), at least with the benefit of some nice reflective surfaces. The Fuji is much smaller and lighter than the Nikon, but, so far, I’m impressed with the quality of the images and, as previously posted, the low light capabilities.
This is St Andrews Square in central Edinburgh, looking across the tram tracks, towards the Harvey Nichols shop.
And looking down the throat of an incoming tram.
And finally, looking across shiny and reflective bike stands towards the ongoing demolition.
St Andrews is mostly known for golf, but if you ignore that, there’s a whole collection of historical anecdotes about various bloody deeds.
It is on the north-eastern tip of the Kingdom of Fife, looking out onto the North Sea, meaning that it is generally susceptible to cold onshore winds.
If you are looking for an interesting place to do photography, I’d recommend a trip. We also went down to the ‘East Neuk‘, which is the name given top the small set of fishing villages (Crail, Anstruther, Pittenweem, St Monans [or Monance] and Elie) running along the south-east coast of Fife at the entrance to the Firth of Forth, with views across to The Isle of May and Edinburgh.
Anyway, we were lucky to be given somewhere to stay for the weekend right in the centre of St Andrews so, naturally, I took some shots. I’ve posted more than I normally would as I promised to share a decent selection to those kind enough to let us stay there.
