Boys will be boys and men will be men… well, mostly. Do you sometimes get to wonder why you were meant to walk down a particular road? No… not the deep, philological roads of life… just a neighbourhood road, that’s … Continue reading
And so he does! Yes, me… dopey, is going on a walk about. I’m taking a leaf from Christina B’s book, blog… whatever. She’s gone with galleries to show off her letters for the challenge so for today (and possibly … Continue reading
This weekend, in Ireland, there are many parades and ceremonies commemorating the centenary of the 1916 Easter Rising. I’m not Irish and even though we’ve been here for 15 years there are certain things I steer well clear of as … Continue reading
I’ll tell what… Ailsa really got me going with this challenge. I was doing a bit of outdoor investigation when a thought struck after I spotted this fantastic work in progress. Find parking nearby to get closer for a few photos. … Continue reading

This week Ailsa asks us to put things in perspective… sorry, I mean in frame! Why not? It’s fun! Pardon my interpretation but I’ve used liberal poetic licence… why not? It’s fun!!
Sometimes one sees a piece of art and wonders about the inspiration. Where did the idea come from? I enjoyed doing a circumnavigation of this piece in Blackrock. The sun, sky and clouds all play their part in changing the … Continue reading
A few week’s ago we drove trough the grounds of one of the internationally renowned golf estates here in North Kildare. We were chasing snow pictures as it had just begun coming down heavily. I’ve shown you a few before but … Continue reading
