Quaint Old Cottage by Orla Cahill

Artwork from Ireland. I came across this little old cottage in The Aran Islands off the coast of County Clare/ County Galway on the west coast of Ireland. I’m sure there was a pot of tea brewing on the stove there many many years ago. These tiny fields are dating from The Great Irish Famine of the 1840’s Ireland. That’s the sea in the background.

Camera: Kodak DC265 (an old compact digital dating from about 1999 …only 1.5million pixels…hence the pixelated look of the image)
