Drizzly Day

Bit of a drizzly day this, and not an amazing photo either. But I just like the contrast of dog and landscape- small to big, black against fuzzy grey.

And Hoover-Dog always like posing for his photo!

When you are stuck behind an SMV (Slow Moving Vehicle!) there's not much you can do except contain your soul in patience.

When the driver of aforementioned SMV grinds to a complete halt so he can shoot the breeze with a friend, you just have to sit it out and try not to think sulphurous thoughts.

Difficult, but necessary around here!

Footbridge, Enniskillen

This is the shortcut into town from the Erneside Shopping Center in Enniskillen. Can be tricky getting over the hump when its icy, but it was lovely this day.

In view of the amount of photos stored on the computer I am going to begin reviewing and dusting off all my scenery and landscape photos.

Don't worry, I've only had the digital camera since July a year ago, so you won't be required to look at years' and years' worth...unless I figure out how to work the folks' scanner!
If that happens, then you are in big trouble as I've been taking photos for YEARS!!

Wait and see, I guess!

And anyway, I'll not be going anywhere interesting in the near future so you might like some of the previous photos!

The Model Arts, Sligo

I took this a few weeks ago, but because the Building is something of a landmark here, I thought I would post it anyhow. This place was built as a Model School in 1862 and was used as such until the 1980s ,I think ,but then the Dept of Education gave it/ sold it(?) to the The Arts Council to be re-furbished and used as an Art Gallery. It is now known as The Model Arts.

Generations of Sligo's children did their primary schooling here, although in later years it was very run-down and blinkin' cold too! Mom used to knit us really thick school jerseys to keep us warm, and we wore tweed kilts. My sister once found a mouse in her coat pocket when she was looking for her gloves, and bats were regular participants in class! Imagine what parents of today's children would say to that?!

O'Connell St., Sligo

The Chamber of Commerce is taking down the last of the Christmas Decorations, end of the season, I guess. They make the town look so festive after dark.

Ah well, until next year, folks!

Whichever way you look at it, Enniskillen's waterfront onto Lough Erne is beautiful in the Winter sun!
