Dunluce Castle as seen from the Wild Goose

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…

Derry/Londonderry, 2009. A statue symbolizing peace.

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

Me On My Bicycle, 1980s

Take a wander over to http://www.myspace.com/andyprattmusic [Dead link – now go to andypratt.bandcamp.com) and say hi to Andy Pratt

I love a lot of his old stuff from the 70s, and I’m told that his first album from 1968 is brilliant, so I must try and get a hold of it.

He didn’t have any pics on his profile yet, so I sent him some that I took of him in concert many years ago and he promptly put them up. [That’s one of mine on Wikipedia – 2012 DC]

He’s a fan of the Russian writer Dostoevsky and I happen to be currently reading his classic The Idiot, so we got a bit of a conversation going over that!

I must put up some of my other pics, not just ones of my own gub (as we say in Ireland), but if you can bear it, I have a few new ones of myself that I’ll post over the next few days.

Whoops! I’m getting chatty – maybe I could get into this blogging thing after all. Don’t get me started on recommending music!

Cheers – DC
