Polaroid’s Day Out

Julie’s first day out with the land camera at the national garden exhibition center.

Look Busy…

Detail in a headstone caught while passing through the graveyard at Glendalough. So many headstones, so little time. I need to get …

Here be Dragons

An overdue visit to Avondale a couple of weeks ago. Everything is starting to turn various shades of brown and gold, much …

St. Kevins Back Yard

Glendalough, much earlier in the year. One of those magical places in Ireland that I’ve never failed to come away from with …

Powerscourt

Powerscourt house, just off the N11 at Enniskerry in Wicklow. A nice spot for a Sunday (or Saturday in this case) stroll. …

P&O Lloyd

Quite an old bus, imported from across the murky sea, lying idle in a yard at Powerscourt. Possibly something to do with …

Blowing off the cobwebs

A few highly enjoyable hours spent (not only because it’s the first time in several weeks that I’ve picked up the camera) …

Landmark

Kinda back where I started, nice landscapes catching my eye and the first from the film that I will get printed over …

Out for a Stroll

Strolling, just like we were, on the rocky beach next to the train tracks. Not many kids out building sandcastles today. Well, …

Spots and Stripes

Hand selected rocks on Newcastle beach. Only the ones with the best stripes (and spots) will do. Incidentally, some of these now …

Lone Star

Single daffodil, seperated from the group. Living in Mount Usher gardens in Wicklow. Nice spot. Very shaky bridges. Delightful stuff.

Sandcastle Factory

Old, broken, left behind. Part of a child’s toy discarded on the beach. Making sandcastles out of rocks does that to plastic …

Chainlink

Nasty great big fence surrounding a lovely crumbling building. On the other hand…

Chubb

Under lock and key at Kilmacurragh in Wicklow. So much more interesting than your average padlock!

Treelined

Another from Kilmacurragh, that previously hidden spot in Wicklow.

Life Saver

Falling into the pond at Kilmacurragh arboretum would be a bad idea. Not so much because you’d possibly drown, but because you …

Somewhere Arboreal

I re-discovered a love of my Sigma 30 f1.4 over the weekend at Kilmacurragh arboretum. Found the place on discover Ireland website …

A Walk in Avondale

Taking a walk in Avondale forest/park/forest park in Wicklow. Appears we weren’t the only ones that came out to see the mountains …

A Walk By The Sea

Following forests gardens and I can’t remember what else, I needed to get back to the beach. Fully intend on visiting one …

Dart to the Sea

Getting the dart down to the seaside, a summertime institution. It’s a little colder and a little greyer now at this seaside …
