Dunno if it was his guitar playing, but this busker seemed to be doing really well, though I suspect it might have had something to do with his mate:-)
Went to the Edinburgh 10s festival yesterday, played at Raeburn Place, Edinburgh.
I was there last year, but for those who’ve forgotten! It’s 10 a side rugby, so a cross between the normal 15 a side and the better known smaller version of the game, 7s.
An if I say so my self, looking at last years pics and the following ones, I think I have improved my photographic skills, but I suppose you’ll be the judge of that.

This years pics,
Noticed a tweet from the singer song writer Passenger saying he was Busking in Edinburgh today, before you think I’m cool I had to ask my teenagers who Passenger was. They seemed keen to go, so off we headed to the Royal Mile.
We found him next to St Giles Cathedral, with a crowd of 100 plus mainly teenage girls. He played for over an hour and got to be honest I enjoyed it.
Above is link to one of Passengers songs, in case like me you didn’t know who he was!
Last home game of this season for Edinburgh, it didn’t go well!
We were on the wrong end of a 12 – 55 drubbing, praise the lord for alcohol, it numbed the pain somewhat!
Last weekend I went to two matches, Edinburgh v Cardiff Blues on the Friday and Lismore V Betuwe on the Saturday, the first being a pro match and the 2nd amateur, Betuwe are a Dutch team over in Scotland for a short tour, they attended the Edinburgh game the night before.
Some pics from both games,
Six Nations action at Murrayfield Stadium, Edinburgh yesterday, Scotland v France.
Ended with a 17 -19 victory for France, a result that left Scotland supporters a bit shell shocked, though imo what cost us was the 9 points in penalties conceded in the first half, our penalty count this Six Nations is not one we’ll want to remember!
Anyway some pics,
Rugby tonight, Edinburgh v Swansea in the RaboPro12, not at Murrayfield, as the pitch is struggling with an infestation of mites!
So it was Meggetland, a small stadium in Edinburgh, but it made for a good atmosphere, the lads must of liked it, because Edinburgh ran out 31 – 25 winners.
An enjoyable game, tries a plenty:-)
Only downside, the light, the stadium floodlights are not a patch on the Murrayfield lights, but I tried and with some help from photoshop I got some ok images, see what you think,
