Famous Five

Last Friday morning we did a photoshoot on the slopes of Arthur’s Seat. The cast of “Five Go Off On One!” joined me dressed up for the occasion in their costumes. When you do a photoshoot you always need to warm up. This time we did it literally. The cast by skipping along the path and was even joined by a passerby.
