I remember the electric blue rain jacket I wore with two white stripes down the arm that made the awful swishing sounds when the material rubbed together, forever putting me off ‘anoraks’… which is a bit of a problem if you live in one of the wettest places in the world!
The 52 Weeks Series :: a photo a week, every week, in 2015. Who knew it would be so hard to choose the photos for this project? I have thousands upon thousands of photographs, and while I have them sorted by year, I certainly haven’t got a strict cataloguing system in play. I should have. While the project grows, I dare say a criteria for choosing images will unfold over the coming weeks. It’s all very subjective. What I like in terms of photography may not be everyone’s cuppa, so I’m sure not everyone will agree with the choice each week. Nonetheless, choose I will. The main aim of the project is to inspire wanderlust, with an emphasis on ecology and the environment. This week, the imposing Dark Hedges.

Like great grey fingers reaching for the sky, the basalt columns of The Organ at the Giant’s Causeway held me totally captivated as a child. I would stand as close to the columns as possible, lean my head back and stare skyward up along the length of hexagonal stones stacked neatly, one upon the other.
