How do you solve a problem like Maria?

Today's post is strictly in the interest of balance (see yesterday's picture) - and to appease my grandfather who thought my blog was 'disgusting' ;-). This singing nun was part of a group performing on the Royal Mile on Tuesday, on one of the stages that are there to showcase some of the Fringe shows. They were very entertaining, but weird...

SUPERB CAPTURE! AS GOOD IF NOT BETTER THAN YOUR EARLIER PIC!

LOL at yesterday's photo and this "balancing" pic! ;D

When I saw the thumbnail on the portal my immediate reaction was what a contrast to your pic of yesterday on which I delicately refrained from commenting - your grandfather is probably a lost cause anyway, once offended probably unlikely to be appeased (not that I know the gentleman).

You have wonderful pictures on your blog and lots of street scenes that I really like, but these two last ones are a must when you see them together! :-)
Very good work, Dido!

The portrait is clear and crisp...wonderful shot. Not that I prefer it, but the candid photo yesterday has to be one of my all-time favorites. I'm sure that I am as old as your grandfather so tell him to "lighten up"--just kidding about the last part. Is Granddad a Scot by any chance or someone who has more decorum than I? PS. Is she an actor or a real honest-to-goodness nun?

THe photo has a real feeling to it. A feeling of total absorption.

What a great portrait - but please I don't want to know what's under her habit. =:-O
But if you have any more Scotsmen, well now that's a different story.

Great shot...but I still like yesterdays better, no matter what Gramps had to say about it.
