New interface wasn't letting me add another 2 photos on Chrome. Trying Safari - 2 from the OpSail 2012 festival:

Glad I looked at this last image - apparently it and many of my quickly uploaded news images for that festival are not available for sale except for personal use instead being marked for editorial use only. More work ahead ...

Thanks John.  I had never been to this festival or seen the wife-carrying event.  I had imagined the would be carried by piggy-back, but not so :).  It's worth seeing at least once, very entertaining!  And lots of food and entertainment at the festival as well.
