Of rain and refugees
The rain continues. Rain and chilly temperatures of 11/12/13 degrees. The shot above was taken at 6.30 in the evening.
Meantime, outdoor events go ahead for the most part. Scotland's major outdoor rock festival, T in the Park, took place at the weekend. Mud has come to be a standard part of UK festivals, but even so the conditions this year must have been miserable - or am I just old? It's a peculiar trait of the UK psyche that camping is equated with enjoyment. There's a huge range of camping styles available at T in the Park, from ordinary tents through to luxury yurts and pods. But add constant rain and even your yurt will suffer.
At Edinburgh's Waverley station on Monday morning the refugees from T in the Park were everywhere. It was one of those times when I felt I could only take surreptitious photos, so the quality of the shots is a bit grainy through being taken at a distance. But you'll get the idea of general mud.
Below - complete, muddy festival exhaustion.
