Stay fierce! #travelphotography   #travel   #photography  
It’s the wee small hours and gale force winds are howling outside my window as I sit here wrapped in a blanket trying to come up with an idea for this week’s travel theme, so I take my …

Getting there is half the fun, right? #travel   #travelphotography   #photography  
It is said that getting there is half the fun … or at least it used to be before the advent of budget airlines. I’ve flown many an airline… …but when time is not of the esse…

This week (August 25th), in 1916, President Woodrow Wilson signed an act creating the National Park Service in the US, which for the last 100 years has protected some of America’s most valuab…

Doing the 'write' thing for this week's #travel   #photography  theme. Join in! #travelphotography  
After last week’s sporty theme I thought something more cerebral might serve to balance things out, so here’s an homage to writing in all its variations, starting with some colourful sp…

Going beyond the pale for this week's #travelphotography  theme.
#travel   #photography  
Although a lot of my photographs feature bright, fierce colours, I am just as drawn to the softer palette of pastels, like the delicate pink of these very hard-to-find wild Irish pink primroses. I …

I came across one of my favourite photos recentlly, taken at a Holi festival a couple of years ago… …and so the travel theme for this week was hatched. This raccoon in Central Park knew…

Getting seasonal for this week's #travel   #photography  theme.
#travelphotography  
I love those aisles in stores that are marked ‘seasonal’; there’s no knowing what kinds of treasures you’ll find there, an ever-changing hodge-podge of things you don’…

rBagging a few peaks for this week's travel theme. #travel   #travelphotography   #photography  
Ireland is pretty flat for the most part, with a great central plain surrounded by a scattering of cheeky peaks. The Wicklow Mountains and Blackstairs in the southwest are pretty but nowhere near l…

Everywhere you go, always take the weather with you #travel   #travelphotography   #photography  
One thing you’re guaranteed to have no matter where you are in the world is weather. Good or bad, it will always give you something to talk about, complain about and photograph. So here are a…

The Rio Olympics are officially underway so what better way to celebrate than to explore the world of sport for this week’s travel theme, starting with a muddy game of tug-of-war, from the no…

Exploring all things indoors this week.
#photography   #travel   #travelphotography  
It’s wild and stormy and I find myself stuck indoors for the day, so I decided to use the opportunity for this week’s travel theme. But how do you interpret indoors? It could be ‘…

A girl in love with the romance and art of travel
Introduction
Photographer, Writer, Adventurer, Globetrotter, Explorer; I love nature, animals and Life with a capital L.

Hi there! I'm Ailsa. I’ve lived in many places, and travelled to many more. I had a lot of fun getting there and being there, wherever there happened to be at the time. I climbed a castle wall in Czesky Krumlov, abseiled down cliffs to go caving in the west of Ireland, slept on the beach in Paros, got chased by a swarm of bees in Vourvourou (ok that wasn’t fun, but it was exciting), learned flower arranging in Tokyo, found myself in the middle of a riot in Seoul, learned to snowboard in Salzburg, got lost in a labyrinth in Budapest and had my icecream stolen by a gull in Cornwall. 

And I'm just getting started.

Quick, friendly and professional. Proper studio set up with great photo results, as opposed to the hideous overhead fluorescent light setup in every pharmacy I visited advertising professional passport photos. Save yourself time, anguish and money and just go straight to these guys.
