Going to leave 2016 by posting a couple of photographs, some like to go out on the town. Some a night in front of the television or to spend it with friends. This year I will sent it on it way with a mug of coffee beside me and this post.
First up is a photograph taken a couple of weeks ago in Lisburn in County Antrim. It shows the old coal quay on the River Lagan where the barges use to unload there wares. With the Union bridge in the background and the newer weir in the foreground. This was taken early in the morning while a light mist hung over the low laying valley and river and traffic was light on the roads.
This next photograph is the last one taken in 2016. It’s a macro shot of two Beech leaves. I love the leather textured look of these leaves in winter.
Which leads me on to a new project in 2017. I enjoy motorcycling and traveling. I discovered that every county in Ireland has a song relating to it. So I will pick a song from each county and photograph the place in the song. If no place is named then I will pick a spot in that county. So over the year I’ll be visiting all 32 county’s and hope to discover a few new places I’ve yet to see. But be warned there are some terrible songs out there.
With just over an hour left in this year I wish for peace across our world, food in the hands off the hungry, homes for the homeless and send love and compassion to all beings.
Happy 2017 may it be a good one.
