Last year's was in the historic House of the Blackheads. This year they had the drinks reception in one venue, then a parade across the old town to Olde Hansa for the main event. Here's a taste of what I missed out on:

    Beautiful photography! That's what my photos should look like. :P I need a bit more skill and a few f/2.8 zoom lenses. My 24-105mm f/4 is great but it won't get shots like that.

    Our pipe band holds a Robbie Burns Supper as a fund-raiser. We get ~500 attendees each year. I got to spend a little time with my wife and guests this year.

    Tad too hot in Perth for formal wear

    With the Burns night being held in a pub and with the temperature at 34C outside, a casual look was needed. Me in Smith Modern, Jeanette in Fraser.
