Quaint rustic cottage, painted lavender and purple, County Cork, Ireland.

Whilst driving around County Cork, we came across this quaint little cottage full of character, painted lavender and purple. It was raining quite heavily but I was so curious, I had to stop to take a photograph (under an umbrella). The window panes weren’t made of glass, just painted wood to look like windows.

My favourite artist, Vincent Van Gogh once said “the way to know life is to love many things” and I hope those words are reflected in my photography.

Thanks for visiting and I hope some of my work resonates with you or inspires you as I am by other photographers’ amazing work here. Please feel free to explore and leave any comments.
