When you get out of bed on a summer’s morning, look out the window, if the birds are singing and the sun is shining, why not get yourself a camera and take a walk in the country.
If you see an old school, or people working on the bog, take a picture.
If you see an old lady in a graveyard, or leaving a church, get a picture of her.
When you get back to the town, and you see an old cinema or dancehall, take a picture.
If you pass by a pub and you hear a fiddle player, go in and take a picture.
When you get your pictures developed, put them in a safe place.
Later on in the year when the weather changes, you look out the window and its raining, leaves falling, everything looking miserable.
Take out your envelope and open it, look at your photographs and smile.
What you are looking at is a “Little Bit of Ireland”
Enjoy the book.
Good Luck – John Finan
