As promised, here is a series of “still life” photos taken on our recent trip to Ireland. Wherever we travel, the colors, textures and geometric patterns found in doorways and building facades seem to characterize the aesthetic culture of a place. I love how bold paint hues contrast with whitewash and stone in Ireland. The following pictures are from Clifden, the island of Inishbofin and Galway.
Gorgeous photos, Salley and Rob! When is the calendar coming out? 😉
So neat! Great photo’s! Hope your whole trip was wonderful! Just got back from Colombia myself. Was good to be there with my sister in Bogota and assist her somewhat in some intense stuff going on; may tell you about that later! Now off to rehearsal with Falmouth Chorale…performing next weekend in a Baroque-music concert, that Rob might enjoy! Love, Maria
I’m saving this to look at on my computer. The phone is too small!
You have the eye, the aesthetic, and the mind too, Bravo! Salley Mavor
Beautiful, interesting and some unusual pictures. I truly enjoyed them. The colors are great. Thank you.
Thanks, Sally. I feel the same way about texture & color.
I wonder why so many of the facades have crumbling paint. Any ideas why?
I think it’s just neglect over time. Then there’s the fact that I tent to find worn and weathered buildings a more interesting subject. So, a high proportion appear in my photo collections.
I hope you are able to visit my exhibition at Highfield Hall in the billiard room before it closes on October 31st. Love the doorways.
Yes, Andrea, I saw your show and it looks fantastic! The dark green of the billiard room is a perfect setting for your pieces.
I love seeing the fuschia blooming-I went to Ireland as a child and still remember whole hedges of Fuschia.
Your photography is beautiful. I loved how you managed to capture the red car in front of the red building.
