Northern Ireland.

Last weekend I went to Northern Ireland for my cousins Hen-Do. I travelled up there on the Thursday where we had a very informative taxi tour of Belfast with a fabulous guide to start off the trip (if you are visiting I highly recommend it).

What I saw in Belfast did shock me, estates are locked up in curfew hours by barricades, and people live with walls dividing their city, not unlike they did in Berlin. The experience saddened me, that people can be so vicious and unforgiving – although I suppose we have all known for a long time that that is human nature. Just look at Israel and Palestine right now.

Anyway, these are some of the photos of our trip, including a walk to the Giant’s Causeway and a beautiful tour of the coast to go with it! I hope you enjoy them.

Watching the Works

I spent the majority of last weekend enjoying the fabulous fireworks in Cardiff. It was the first opportunity I have taken to have a go at some ‘street’ photography, I’m usually terrified of people shouting at me for taking a picture without asking them – so here goes! Let me know what you think everyone!

 

 

 

Thanks for looking everyone, hope you have all had a lovely week!
