A view of Ben Crom reservoir from the top of Ben Crom mountain in the Mournes. I'm not sure that I have managed to capture the dizziness of the shear drop to the water below. I guess you have to be there (to appreciate it) or get a better photographer to visit it. We have had a mixture of showers and sunshine lately, but the sky is quite red tonight so perhaps tomorrow will be more settled.

There is a lot of council (social) housing in Belfast - most of it very plainly designed. Now that a lot of this housing has been sold off to residents, many people have decided to make their homes look more individual. The three door numbers are an unusual touch - I guess the owners had difficulty on deciding on a favourite, so decided to have them all!

I was in the city centre branch of Waterstones this morning and was quite taken aback to see, amongst the sections on cookery, travel etc., a whole new section devoted to 'Painful Pasts'. I find this rather disturbing - do some people actually make straight for this section to see if there are any new stories out on abused childhood?

The churchyard at Greyabbey. This is a wonderful, really atmospheric place, in a little village at the top of the Ards Penninsula - just a few miles outside Belfast. The abbey itself is crumbling and apparently unsafe to visit, but the graveyard is also well worth a visit - many of the gravestones are very old and quite beautiful.

This weekend saw the second Festival of Fools in Belfast. This photo is of half of 'Tempo Rubato' - a surreal double act. My daughter loved them, but I found their masks really creepy - (they reminded me of the mask worn by the Michael Palin character in Brazil). Unfortunately I didn't manage to get any photos of everyone's favourite, the wonderful Mario, Queen of the Circus.

I'm not officially participating in today's theme day (still haven't worked out how to..), but nevertheless, I thought I'd visit another city for the day. This was taken last summer, on the last night of a wonderful holiday in Paris, at the funfair in the Tuileries. (The chairs are empty as it had just started to rain- making it a little easier to go home.)
