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!
Grass growing in the Arizona desert.
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.
