Scart Road

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!

How to send flowers to ladies

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!

No. 20, Bantry

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.

Old farm building in ruins

Out in the wilds of Co Cork, to the north of Bantry I found an old deserted farm. The house looked like it had been empty for some time and some of the out buildings were in worse repair.

Don’t forget the photowalk on Sunday!

The long road

A road winds into the hills north of Bantry. Yesterday’s photo of the Bantry hills was taken just up the road from here!

I joined Red Bubble yesterday and sold a photo already, although I think it was Pete who bought it as I emailed him last night about it. Nice selection of presentation methods too. Cool.

The rolling hills of Bantry

This is one of my favourite shots from the weekend in Bantry.

Basically I drove up the back roads out of Bantry town, then came to another town and picked the smallest road out of that place before going up a tiny little boithirin with barely room for my car. Wonderful.
