ASCEND: The Daily Post Photo Challenge, 13 December 2017

It’s almost time for self to pack up her books and end another incredibly intense, productive stay at the Tyrone Guthrie Centre in Annaghmakerrig.

Her last hurrah: in honor of this week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge, ASCEND, here are shots of the stairs going to her writing studio.

Also, failed to reach her goal of 50k words for NaNoWriMo2017, but her novel-in-progress is up to 281 pp.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

Transformations 3: FALL

Snowed two days ago: big, fat, heavy flakes, the like of which self has never seen.

Found this tiny thing on the floor of my cottage today. Must have carried it in on a shoe or a coat or a scarf. Self was about to throw it in the trash when something made her take a closer look:

Transformation: The Daily Post Photo Challenge, 22 November 2017

This week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge is TRANSFORMATION.

There are many ways self could choose to interpret that challenge. She could show nature and the changing seasons. She could show people in the process of transforming (costumes, aging, and so forth).

For now, she chooses to focus on the transformation of physical space. The first picture is London’s Chinatown in late October. The second is the Blue Room in Paradiso in Cork.

In the first picture, the Chinese lanterns add a whole different aspect to the street.

In the second, it’s the shadows cast by a floor lamp that transform a simple room into a place of mystery.

EXPERIMENTAL: The Daily Post Photo Challenge, 15 November 2017

  • This is about “being experimental and choosing a new path.”

— Krista Stevens, The Daily Post

Last week, while wandering around Dublin, self stopped to gawk at the display window of a designer’s studio on Cow’s Lane:

Unfortunately, the shop was closed. Self had to content herself with taking pictures.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

 

 

Temporary 3: Annaghmakerrig

Self’s greatest sadness in coming here is knowing that she’ll have to leave eventually.

Which cottage is self in? Can you guess?

Annaghmakerrig is the only Irish place name she can pronounce correctly.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.

Temporary 2: Weather in Dublin, Around Noon

Self loves that the Photo Challenge this week is TEMPORARY.

Since she is in Ireland, the country where, according to a Dublin cab driver, “If you don’t like the weather, wait 10 minutes,” she decides that this week she will just keep chronicling the weather.

She took these pictures in Dublin, earlier today:

Temporary: The Daily Post Photo Challenge, 8 November 2017

This week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge is TEMPORARY.

What could be more “temporary” than the weather?

Last night, Dublin was cold and rainy.

Today, just look at the difference!

Self took the Luas from Blackhorse (name of a saloon on the corner; sadly, appears to be closed) to Jervis. One of the stops on the way was Fatima. Only in Dublin!

Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
