Post by Paul and Lynn Henni

Our 2017 Selection of #Edinburgh #Festival #Photography

A selection of some of the images we took during the Edinburgh Festivities. As ever, lots going on, too much to try and see, random things happening on the street and plenty of photographic scenes to capture.

First up, the official Edinburgh International Festival opening, celebrating 70 years of the Festival and Fringe, including ‘Bloom’.

And some performers from The Wedding Reception out in Princes Street Gardens, looking the part as Bride, Groom, Mother of the Bride and embarrassing Father of the Bride.

And finally, here’s where you can currently see our prints on display.

henni.photo Prints and Etchings at 3 locations

Currently, our prints and etchings are on display at McDonald-Greene Jewellers in Bruntsfield,  at Dundas Street Framers and in the Art Collective at 139 Princes Street.  All work is for sale and ready to take away, but please feel free just to go and have a look and tell us what you think. Nothing beats seeing a print on the wall – you get a much better idea of it than on a screen.

Hairy Pigs on Easdale Island

Post by Lynn and Paul Henni

Having summoned the ferry to take us from Easdale village to Easdale Island by pressing the bell, we thought we’d probably be back on the next scheduled one about half an hour later.  After all, it’s a small island and we had visited it previously.  We had not anticipated the lure of the woolly pig or the blonde Mangalica pig, according to Wikipedia.

We found a sign saying ‘Pigs’ and followed the direction in which it pointed.  We came across a sunken area with a couple of these lovely Mangalica snoozing away – this is the female.

Once we got closer, we realised that there was a large litter of tiny piglets sprawled over the male pig – we later established they were about 2 weeks old.  They started to move around as we got closer.

A close-up of one of the piglets straddling dad’s foot.

Clearly, it was tea-time so they all made for the mother and started suckling.  She did her best to sleep on.

After a lot of wriggling, they managed to line up so they could all get in to feed.

Happy little piglets!

Once fed, they all toddled off.

And back to dad – perhaps he has more body heat but the challenge was for the whole litter to climb on top of him and find a secure perch.

There were several false starts and not all climbing was elegant.

Some tried a double-decker approach to hold on.

Eventually, they managed to form a neat line although the one at the end didn’t look to secure and more wriggling, slipping and re-climbing followed.

Looking quite contented here.

They look much more comfortable lying snuggled up next to their dad – well, apart from the one underneath but it looked happy enough.

The sow slept on presumably happy that the boar was looking after their little family.

If you want to visit the pigs, they are owned by the folk who run the Easdale B&B which looks like a very peaceful place to stay.

Finally, a short summary of what we have on show in Edinburgh at the moment.

An Overdue Update #Edinburgh #Photography @LynnHenni

An Overdue Update #Edinburgh #Photography

There’s a common theme amongst bloggers where they talk about a lack of recent posts and being busy with things, so here’s our contribution to this without the long discussion about it.

Firstly, here are a few recent images, which would have been in the now non-existent posts from the past wee while.

And a reminder of the Retina International Photography Festival 2017, now in the final weeks so a last chance to see the Royal Photographic Society exhibition at the Drill Hall which finishes tomorrow and the Emerging Talent and Shutter Hub exhibitions, both at Ocean terminal and which finish on Sunday 30th.
