Blipfoto, where I post a photo every day, chose one of my previous photos tagged with ‘blipthefestivals’ as a winner of their competition and gave me the most fantastic prize – a media pass to the Tattoo on Thursday 23rd August.

The evening started about 5:30 when I picked up the pass from the Tattoo office, then I sat in town reading the information I had been given about the timings for each part of the show and read the official programme. At 8pm I made my way past the huge queue and met Kevin, and Bill Jamieson (The Army HQ Scotland Press Officer), who gave me a choice of places to set up. I chose to stand at ground level right at the front of the parade ground – the performance was amazing, and so close. I almost got knocked over by the Norwegian Army at one point 🙂
