Herbert Park

After you live in one place for a while, you forget the things that drew you to it in the first place (or at least I do!).  You begin to take it for granted and get down on it as familiarity sets in and all you see are the things that annoy you.  When I get like this about Dublin, I have a quick remedy:  Herbert Park.  It’s one of my favorite spots in the city — very tranquil, always lush and just a short stroll from my house. 

This happens to be one of my favorite spots in Herbert Park — I have about 10,000 photos of it but this is one of my favorites — taken with my Diana F+, pinhole camera. And it’s hard to tell but there’s a tiny little white ball of fluff in the back of the image — that would be my trusty companion, Tilly.

      I miss it, too! Tilly and I haven’t been down there much at all this summer — we’ve been heading to the beach. I think I need to go up there this weekend and get my fix.
