Our Past in Photographs

In the Ulster Museum, there is a gallery displaying photgraphs, mostly taken by photojournalists, documenting our troubled past and how life went on in spite of the Troubles.

Belfast Street scene in the 70's - note the mural of 'King Billy'

Views of the bombing devastation

Some of my favourite photos of characters you'd only find in Belfast in the 70's!

Putting their lives on the line, literally...

Two gulls photobombed this lake shot but I'm thankful that they did because when I look at them soaring free in the skies, I am reminded how precious our civil and religious liberties are and I thank God for my freedom.

Classic Ferraris

Dipping into the archives for Tuesday's Treasures with Tom HERE and a couple of classic Ferraris spotted last summer and snapped by my son as I was driving. 

He's the car enthusiast and tells me they are rare and very valuable models.

They were definitely in pristine condition.

Thanks for your visit and comments!

Monday Murals

This set of plaster cast and tile murals are found beneath the A1 bridge Dromore County Down and entitled 'Taking Stock', a community project to commemorate Dromore's history.

From Harry Ferguson's mechanical achievements... the area's thriving agricultural diversity...

...and the town's religious buildings.  All were created by the local school children.

Love the texture here.

Linking with Sami at Sami-ColourfulWorld HERE For Monday Murals! Check them out!

Have a good week!

Same bridge as I featured in yesterday's post, just a different season! Found these from a few years back when the kids went paddling and splashing about at the river on a hot day.

Not a huge flow that day!  We could walk through the arches!

We then had fun throwing in some large stones to make a splash!


THanks for coming by!
