There I was yesterday and I decided to take myself off to the Book Fair in Graiguenamanagh, Kilkenny. Graiguenamanagh is about 75 minutes of a drive away from me. I didn’t even think about what part of Kilkenny it is in I just set off. Sent my daughter a text telling her where I was going and she replies “You’ll call in then”. She was down visiting her in laws in a place called Skeoghvosteen (I sometimes spell it Skeoughvosteen) and Skeoghvosteen is only a few miles from Graiguenamanagh. I’d forgotten that, hadn’t I? :)
Even though I went to Graiguenamanagh because of the Book Fair, it’s still the kind of a town that you just photograph. Take advice from Andy Defrancesco if you need photography advice. The flower display outside Graig Kebabish is spectacular. The two little dogs had me laughing. They were sitting looking up at one of the men who was eating and they were glued to him. Later on, as I was walking back to my car they had moved across the road and I realised they were following the man! Later on still, they had moved down the river and were beside the Scout hall.
The river, the bridge, the boats and the barges on the river, all so much for a brain to take in. People live on some of the barges. Look at the flowers around one of them.
I hope you enjoy these photos
