Many years ago when the digital camera became affordable for me I started with photography as my hobby, before that I used to paint water colours. Today as I was looking through some old CD-ROMs I came across some pictures that I used to like at the time, and seeing that I did not do much else today I thought that I would make them the subject of today’s blog entry.
This sunset I took on my way home from work one winter’s day, the water is Bantry Bay which is always good for a nice sunset.
This snap I took while on an early Sunday morning trip around the area here to take photos of wild flowers, I noticed this idyllic farm setting and loved it, so peaceful.
I found this one among my ‘cat’ photos, his name is Goldberg and he was an amazing cat, always wanted to be close to me, and here I was trying to look over my notes of a course I was doing.
While on a forest walk with a friend who knew about edible mushrooms I came across this tree branch full of (inedible) toadstools, I thought that it was such a nice picture and a lovely find. We did go on to find a lot of Chanterelles which are very much liked here by people in the know. (I’m not and don’t trust myself to identify them properly)
This photo is just of a cow on a winter’s morning, for a while I was put on mobile library duty here in West Cork, I enjoyed it immensely as it was lovely to interact with the wonderful country people and to see all the wonderful nature on the sometimes long journeys around the peninsulas. It used to be very cold on the old library bus, but there was always the little gems I used to come across.
