Found Alphabet - H
I found H in the Garden of Unearthly Delights - a major Adelaide Fringe venue. For those of you not in Adelaide, the Adelaide Fringe is the second largest in the world after Edinburgh's festival and it's absolutely fantastic. I try to see as many shows as I can fit in - though shockingly I haven't been in three days - hot weather in tent venues is nasty and the air conditioned status of indoor venues is unpredictable.
My favourite way of experiencing the fringe is to do so with Rushtix - last minute cheap tickets - often bought at the Garden of Unearthly Delights box office. Sometimes it's good, sometimes it's bad, but it's an amazing way to discover all kinds of awesome things. I do book one or two items of particular interest ahead of time as many acts do sell out, but the bulk of my fringe experience is last-minute and cheap - that way I can see more! I've been known to see two or three shows in a night given the chance...
So far I've seen the Fringe Parade, Eastend Cabaret, Morgan & West, Sammy J and Bushpig. I hope to considerably expand that list in the next week. Later in the week I'll also do a brief write-up on those and any others I see in the meantime.
This is one of the seat-ish things that are located in the food area - they get used in many ways, probably because they're not particularly a chair or a table and are very low to the ground. I think they make a pretty perfect H, and pleasantly there's no need to selectively crop the item. Almost any window frame could be an E, an F, and H or an I with selective cropping and rotation but I prefer to avoid that - it feels like cheating!
Just the one instance of the letter - whenever I've been free I've been at the Fringe. This is my excuse and I am sticking to it! If you're tossing up whether or not to go to the fringe, do it. No matter how weird or wonderful the act it's a really fabulous time of year in Adelaide.
