We took a quick spin to Skerries yesterday afternoon as it’s where the owner of the ear pictured above will be spending her working week.
And what’s a reconnaissance mission without a few photos?

hmmmm……those lovely kites. thanks for a bit of home.
I dig the selective color in the earring. I also love the ghost face sticker in the window. Well done.
Thanks very much. We have similar tastes I reckon – I always tend to lead with my favourite photo.
So many beautiful photographs I don’t even know which one to comment on. I particularly like the two people wading and the seagull but, that’s not really fair as I love them all.
Thanks so much, really glad you like them.
I think you are a bit like me, Conner – loving the natural world, then drawn to the rusty, decrepit things… they are beautiful in their way..
…ooops.. Conor… sorry!
Ya, there are some really interesting objects in the “unnatural” environment and I particularly like, as is the case with the hub cap above, when they seem to almost be trying to blend in with the natural environment around them.
haven’t been there in ages should take another trip soon
I hadn’t been in years. Unfortunately didn’t get to stay long, but I’d say it’s wonderful on a sunny day, so maybe during the summer… if we get one!
think it may be on a Wednesday this year … 🙂
Ha! It would be a work day 🙂
it always is
I love your composition in all of these pictures… Great work!
Thank you very much!
Beautiful photos. Thank you for stopping by my blog and liking my post. I look forward to seeing more of your photos.
Thanks Meanee. THat was a lovely post about Ms Eva.
Wow Conor this is a place you could get lost in for hours taking photos… Thanks for sharing…
Thanks Linda, I wish I had hours 🙂
Your images show so much detail..nice to meet you☺
Thanks for visiting, and for the kind words.
Tremendous images as usual.
Thanks Andrew, I really appreciate the kind words.
The array of subjects evokes an array of emotions. Thanks for the trip!
You’re most welcome 🙂
Ports are a target rich environment and you’ve put together a nice variety of images 🙂
Thank you! I find anywhere by the sea is great for photos really. And just great in general!
Love those shoes!
Thanks… Pretty cool quiz you were doing 🙂
Why thank you! My results will be revealed tomorrow … bit of a blow to my movie-ego, though 🙂
Ah an excuse for more “research” is not all bad 🙂
Terrific images Conor, looks like an amazing location.
Thanks Phil. You’d love it, there are islands right off Skerries that are all Special Areas of Conservation due to the birds that inhabit (and stop in on) them.
I know you say you’re in no way an expert but these photographs are excellent! My favorites are the 2nd, 3rd, 6th and 10th photographs
Beautiful photos! You have a great eye for detail color balance.
Thanks very much Victoria.
Very nice pics…the ‘rose’ rose stands out..
But liked the shoe washing too…nice colours 🙂
Nothing beats a good wienerbrød!
Thanks evry much! Really glad you enjoyed the pics 🙂
Loved Skerries – lovely pics! I wish I had spent more time exploring the area when I visited 🙂
Thanks Jessica. Me too – I hope to get back some time during the summer.
Really like the image entitled ‘Peeking’. Very nice. Keep up the good work 🙂
Thanks Deirdre, will do my best!
