Larry sat, precariously balanced at the very tip of the old oak’s highest branch. He’d reversed his jacket, changing the colour from bright red to dappled green… to make himself almost invisible. Only the tufts of bushy eyebrows flashed coppery … Continue reading
Yesterday morning I did the airport run and on the way home the misty surrounding and almost full moon called out for a photo stop. The Moyglare Church beckoned. There I was… wandering around in my pre-dawn driving outfit… including … Continue reading
I’ll continue with our Boyne Canal walk. About halfway back toward Navan town there’s a set of castles, one on the north bank of the river and one on the south bank. The north bank structure must have been an … Continue reading
Yesterday’s post got me thinking. The photo was taken on the promenade in Arklow Town. We’d gone down to see if the full moon rising would present any opportunities but alas, it was so cloudy that there was no sign … Continue reading
I was going to leave you with just one photo for this week’s challenge as it’s the spooky season. However, how could I skip showing you this tree in all its autumn glory? OK… onto the pic I was going … Continue reading

Wild? In Ireland? Wild? It’s only the people who go wild. Well, some of them… not all. The wild beasts have been tamed many wild moons ago… the wild flowers are all sedated now… little of the true wilderness remains so … Continue reading
Today’s photo has stirred the hiding teller of stories in me. Yes, this last month or so has not been easy. New job, the illness… all well documented so I don’t have to say much more about why the story-teller … Continue reading
This one left me in a bit of a quandary. I often wonder if Ailsa’s been put on the planet solely to challenge my last few remaining creativity cells? There I was, planning all sorts of experiments with fire… some bits of cardboard covered with … Continue reading
He sat bolt upright… startled, dazed… even a tad frightened. Where was he? What was he doing in this strange place? Why was this happening to him? Then, slowly but surely it dawned on him… he was dreaming, again. The … Continue reading
Zach loved Southern France, almost as much as he loved the Western Cape. Vineyards… mountains, rocky outcrops… fast flowing streams… chasms and caves. History, both real and imaginary. It was everywhere. In the ancient rock formations… in the villages, even … Continue reading
