Out in the Country

Drive-by shooting became a favourite activity when I took to photography first. It passes the time nicely to capture the landscape as it ambles by.

Also, when travelling in new places, recording roadside landmarks and signs helps to retrace the way one has come.

In Ireland, the centre of the country is relatively unpopulated, compared with continental Europe. Apart from the little towns with their bright shop fronts and houses which can go back as far as the 18th century there can be little to record that is worth uploading. However the country churches are very beautiful and well built, a joy for anybody interested in stonework.
