Howard Solley of Bristol submitted this photo, taken at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in August 2006. Writes Solley, "This street festival on The Royal Mile, just outside Edinburgh Castle, runs along with the Royal Edinburgh Tattoo at the Castle. The Edinburgh Fringe Festival is alive with all sorts of characters and performers, ranging from Braveheart and Tinkerbelle to Opera Singers. The character in the photo was a "living statue." He would remain motionless until someone put a donation in the basket, when he would quickly change position and then go motionless again.
