The Fortean Picture Library

Where the world gets its weird photographs…

Ah, you know it’s nearin’ the Christmas when the post arrives of a Sunday, ha?
Today I received the fine surprise of a letter from The Fortean Picture Library, ‘a pictorial archive of mysteries and strange phenomena by Janet and Colin Bord’.
With it was princely payment for a photograph I’d sent them some seven years ago, of the gravestone in Co. Leitrim, upon which was a carving of an alledged Dobhar-Chú, or master otter, a mysterious beast said to live in a lake beside the mountain of Ben Bulben.
Now the photograph appearing in Traveller (Conde Naste) magazine. Nice.
