We left our familiar environment and busy homelife, the work and the chores, just for one last adventure before term time. We went to explore the island. To chase the tide, and watch the sunset. We whispered in the perfect silence. We swam in the water, tasted the salt, and held up our faces to the wind. We cooked ‘happier’ meals together. We breathed easy and we smiled at our good fortune to know this place. Just for a little while.
People often ask me what I love most about this job. I do enjoy the photographs but I think it’s the relationships I have made along the way that keep me going. The people that have allowed me into their lives and constantly surprise with their kindness. I think what I cherish most about this job is that I get to see the best of people. Thank-you Toners for welcoming us into your beautiful home. We needed it more than we even knew. And thank-you Inch Island for sharing the magic.
Normally my blogposts are about people, but this blogpost is about a place. Inch Island and beautiful Inishowen. I’m making a wee book so I thought I would share some of those photos, taken with my camera and with my iphone.
There is something very therapeutic about heading out at dawn to take photos for yourself. My Dad is here too. He’ll be 70 this month so it’s a special year. He is like me. We’re easily contented with wide open spaces and a good pint of Guinness!
I managed to squeeze in an engagement shoot up there too. Next up on the blog.
