Scart Road, or Bothar na Scairte in Bantry, Co. Cork.
When you leave the wide open area near the harbour in Bantry you come across really steep hills to the east. I happened to walk that way pushing a buggy so I had to stop and catch my breath here before heading on up.
Bantry is much bigger than I thought before and I should get some nice urban shots there the next time I’m down that way!
Old rope on the quayside in Bantry Harbour, Co. Cork. I love the different textures in this image, and I knew I’d be happy with it in b/w!
One of the many trees growing in the arid desert surrounding the ranch Automattic stayed in while in Arizona.
Obviously the gentlemen of Bantry are a polite and courteous bunch.
While their women folk are in the public loo an enterprising soul will sell them flowers for their better half!

The Ouvane River runs near Bantry in Co. Cork and in the distance is Carriganass Castle.
The weather was terrible when I took this. Showers, cold, wind. How I suffer for my art!
I walked around Bantry Town a bit snapping the local streets and this house appealed to me. I think I saw it in b/w and the lovely texture of the walls.
It could also have been the hill and I wanted a small break from pushing the buggy around too of course.
If you’re going to sit up on a high wall wearing a funny hat you could at least look happy that you have a great position to see the St Patrick’s Day Parade. No, I didn’t see this fella smile at all.
A year before the wall was taken over by photographers but alas, the excellent vantage point was wasted this year.
Ropes tie up small boats in Bantry, Co Cork. The tide is very far out and many boats are stranded in the mud.
I love the texture of rope. Yummy.
Looking forward to meeting you all at the photowalk tomorrow!
