The University of Edinburgh's Old College quad is used for various performances during the summer arts festival, but things aren't so exciting during the rest of the year. However this week the Kilgore Rangerettes from east Texas performed as part of their 75th anniversary tour of Scotland and Ireland.
In the shot above the performers are just about to land on the grass in the splits. I didn't get a photo because I was too surprised. Ouch - I can't begin to imagine how they practise that. As we say in Scots - they're 'gey swack' - very supple. When I googled 'swack' I was startled to discover that it means something...very different, if you come from San Diego.
