A beautiful Tattoo!

The fireworks ceased and the sound of bagpipes grew louder in the darkness. The military parade made its way down the hill from the castle toward the onlookers, it sure was a beautiful sight and well worth the wait.

The only complaint I had was that the bright screen was a little distracting and made photo opportunities difficult. 

Onlookers before security put the barriers in place.
The colours were constantly changing as well as the roles of the people marching. Kids and adults in suits of armour, drummers and dancers. In only a few minutes the last ones walked by and the barriers removed.

I am not religious but there is something magical about fireworks and light performances around religious and historical buildings. This reminds me, I have some Harry Potter images which I will put in my next post. 

Enjoy the display!



Bag-Rock is a genre?

Or bagpipe-rock as it is alternatively known, is now one of my new favourite genres. 


I took a night out from trying to wrap my head around this ever expanding and complex universe to listen to some great music at the Sage Gateshead. A fantastic venue.

If you haven’t heard of The Red Hot Chili Pipers, give them a listen! I’m sure you won’t regret it.
