Another eventful month gone...


Fine weather on the last day of September, 2010...



This wee spider's web caught on camera on the walk to the bus...


The moon was in many of my shots today - for example, this, of one of my favourite towers in Edinburgh...


A trip to Dunfermline was required this morning - misty as I made my way over but bright and sunny on the way back...



In the evening, out with Annie, firstly, to La Piazza, opposite the tower above, where we enjoyed a very tasty pre-theatre dinner - bruschetta and penne carbonara for Anne, soup and sea bass fillet for your correspondent...

Mmm, mmm...

Then to the Traverse theatre...


...for a sold out "Orlando", with music by Craig Armstrong and AGF, the latter in attendance, onstage, taking part in the performance - a very entertaining 80 minute adaptation of Virginia Woolf's novel...

An extrodinary performance from Madeleine Worrall in the title role - a virtual monologue, with electronic soundscapes and state of the art visual effects...

Impressive...

Back home in time for a lacklustre "Mock the Week", "Question Time" (no idea why "actor" Brian Cox should have been invited on - doesn't live in Britain, has no idea about politics, professional left wing lovey)...

Followed by an entertaining "This Week", which was fallen asleep to...

Highlight of the Day : Orlando...

uh... did you really mean to write "the latter" = AGF? Or rather "the former" = Craig Armstrong? Just trying to clarify.

Hi - Yes it was the latter, Ms AGF, who was in attendance and laptopping the sound during the play.

Hope this helps
