Today during my walk around town, I took some more photos to add to my photo database on Skibbereen town. I have made this place my own since I came to live here in the nineteen-eighties. A small market town in West Cork, it has a population of about two thousand. There is quite a bit of history attached to this town, as is natural of course. The river Illen runs through it and is a great asset and could be made an even greater focal point. Anyway, Skibbereen has so much to offer, it has a well run and active Art Centre, beautiful shops, even seven charity shops, and it is quite close to the coast. I have so much I would like to see happening in the future planning of this town.
So I started to make a collection of photos of all sort of corners and angles of this lovely place, actually I have not even started yet when I think of how much I can still do. It makes my walks interesting, a great hobby of mine. Town planning and architecture has always interested me, when I used to paint water colours many years ago I was always excited about townscapes, the shapes of roofs and little corners, so pleasing to the eye.
