I took this picture of Dunluce Castle (Northern Ireland) from the Wild Goose, 2009. This is the castle pictured on Led Zeppelin’s “Houses Of The Holy”. The Wild Goose is a small yacht which was the first vessel to navigate the entire coast of Russia. The tale of how it now belongs to my sister and brother-in-law is rather interesting in itself! Perhaps I’ll tell it in another photo – watch this space…
Another of my photos from Derry/Londonderry, 2009. A statue symbolizing peace. Sadly, a firebomb planted by the IRA went of at a hotel in that very city on Friday, but thanks to a swift midnight evacuation, no one was hurt. #peace

Derry/Londonderry, N. Ireland in 2009. (@hanfengshui asked me to post more photos of Ireland but I don’t live there any more so I’m digging into the archives!) #archivegram #ireland #norrhernireland #derrystrokelondonderry #norniron #dccardwellarchives
Finally found the huntsman that died in my studio a couple of years ago. Like most spiders, they shrink considerably almost immediately on expiration. #bigspider #huntsman
