Order a print, or get the high-resolution version for printing &raquo PLEASE NOTE - I POSTED THIS IMAGE IN 2006 - I HAVE NO CURRENT KNOWLEDGE ABOUT ANYTHING TO DO WITH THIS HOUSE! Was in county Clare at the weekend - went hunting and found Father Ted's House (Craggy Island Parochial House), from the hit TV comedy series. It was a pilgrimage of sorts - chasing down the highways and byways in a very lapsed-Catholic kinda way. Nice house, but you'd think it would be taller. Turns out its on a windy backroad in the Burren, between Killnaboy and Boston both of are only a arse's roar from Kilfenora. We took turns posing stupidly in front of the house, dodgy the odd farmer hurtling buy in clapped-out Talbot Solaras, and trying to stop my sisters dog from fraternising with the pack of friendly dogs that came hurtling down the driveway....


Get high resolution version A couple of weeks ago I visited the town of Komiza on the island of Vis, off the coast of Croatia. One the of least-populated bigger islands in Croatia, it doesn't have the hordes of tourists that other places - like Hvar - are inundated with Italian tourists. The quayside of Komiza is lined with 16th and 17th century Venetian-style buildings, and elaborate looking if rather stocky 16th century castle which has a fishing museum inside. Outside the town there are loads of little coves and beaches, and a Benedictine Monastery. Interestingly, while I was sitting on one of the beaches, I finished reading Eastern Approaches by Fitzroy McClean, which includes an account of the setting up Allied bases here during World War II, and the established by the Yugoslavian partisan leader of a HG - in a cave high up on the side of Mount...


Ok, falling prey to the cute factor, I know...


This one chased the boat back to Kilmore... It's not the sharpest of shots, but I like the movement in it.


Got slagged off for taking photographs of such 'common' bird - but I think they're very pretty. On the beach at Matauri Bay, 10/7/2005, after coming ashore from the Rainbow Warrior:
