Emptied my digital camera of all the pictures I took when the Edinburgh Festival
was on. I had dozens of street performers all vying for people’s loose change.

Girl Musician





























Pretty girl standing on a shoe box playing an accordion.
I gave her 10p.

Guy looking ill



























Some guy all grey looking at a grey ball.
Never had any grey coloured coins so gave him nothing,
