This photo was taken by James Diedrick from Decatur, Georgia.
"I took this photo on August 9, 2007, at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival—specifically, on the Royal Mile in central Edinburgh. During the days of the festival, actors and actresses in full costume perform short scenes from their plays, to be performed that evening in area theaters. This actress had the lead in John Ford's 1629 play 'Tis a Pity She's a Whore.
I took the photo with a Canon EOS 20D equipped with a 70-200 mm lens ... I'm a professor and Dean at Agnes Scott College, a women's college in Atlanta, Georgia.
My wife and I love to travel, and in the past five years have visited Greece, Scotland, France, and England. We are planning a trip to Finland and Norway in June 2010. We attended the Fringe Festival as part of a two-week tour of Scotland, a 10th wedding anniversary present to ourselves."
