On Wednesday 3rd October, I attended a paint processing workshop in Colortrend Paint factory in Celbridge, Co Kildare.
The factory is located in what was once an old Union Workhouse which housed County Kildare’s “paupers” from 1841-1923.
I can’t believe that I haven’t posted my Photo Of The Week for the last 7 weeks!!! In my defence I have been really busy at work and while I still managed to take a Photo a Day, I just haven’t had a chance to upload my favourites here.
So here’s a quick catch up from my favourite shots from August and September.
I’m an animal person, ok particularly a dog person but I do love all creatures great and small………. well …….except for bees. I’m terrified of them!!
Not that I would harm them or anything, I just tend to run away screaming and crying at the sight of one. 🙂
So when I spotted this little guy on the lawn the other day, I summoned up my courage and got down as close as I could to get a shot of him.
In our old house most of the garden was hard landscaped with only a couple of little flower beds and pots to add colour. But considering that I don’t have green fingers it was always plenty for me to cope with.
Now that we’re in mums we have a much bigger garden and I’m really enjoying pottering about and watching what the flora and fauna has to offer.
Here’s a few little pics of what’s happening around here now that the sun is shining.
Last Wednesday evening, I had the pleasure to attend the photography launch of “Retrospective 01” a collection of photographic works by award winning Irish photographer Enda Cavanagh.
Enda is an Irish architectural and fine art landscape photographer based in Dublin. Growing up in rural Ireland, Enda and has always felt a strong connection to the land. He is drawn to the rugged beauty of Ireland and discovers a great sense of peace in our environment. He seeks to reflect the inherent drama and melancholy of the Irish landscape in his photographs.
Along with my Interior Design work and running this blog, I am also on the committee of The Interiors Association, the professional body in Ireland representing Interior Architects, Designers and Stylists. Last Saturday we organised a private tour of some of Dublin’s most famous Georgian landmarks.
