St. Andrew’s Day

In honour of Scotland’s patron saint and also of Document Scotland’s first ever St Andrews Day together we decided to partake in a little group project. Each of us took a wander with our cameras to see what was happening in our neighbourhoods, we found ceilidhs, balls and festivities.

Some of the results are here, 4 Photographers, 3 countries, 1 Saint. Enjoy!
