My Favourite Photographs!!

Why do I like them??

This is a photo of a cliff on the cove coast line. I like this photo because ir reminds me of the sound of the waves and the wind was so breathtaking, it gives you the feeling of freedom!

This photo was taken in Foto Island in Cork.Im not quiet sure why I like this photo, I just do. There is something about the red beaks that add a splash of colour to the damp and gloomy backgroundthat I think is what makes it such a nice photo.

This is a photo I took of the Brooklyn Bridge, when I was in New York. I actually have a fear of bridges but this one , with its sheer size, length and industrial beauty makes me at ease. I love this photo because it brings back really happy memories and the pigeon I think is a nice touch!

This photo was taken driving across the Brooklyn Bridge looking down over China town. I love the graffiti, some people call it vandalism I call it amazing. It has a cool ,edgy feel about it. I don't know what half the words mean but it looks awesome.

This photo was taken when I was walking down the street in New York. I looked up for some reason and I was completely and utterly awe- struck. I just had to take a photo , I think it really captures how surreal it felt for a country girl hitting the big apple.

I took this photo when I was out bringing in the cows for milking one evening. This particular cow followed me around like a lost puppy. So I spun around and told it to walk on and she gave me the cutest face ever and I fell in love with her. How can you be mean to that face!!

What more is there to say about this photo then wow....just wow!! I love this photo because its got some of the most important people in my life in it. I would be lost without them. This photo shows unity, togetherness and promotes good times!!
