Wanderings with the fae. A photographic journal of places of atmosphere, folklore, history and strangeness, found on my travels around Ireland.
Sometimes you find things totally by accident. Sometimes these places have a greater resonance than those you visit deliberately.
Miles from any road, from any other inhabitation, the lost cottage sits in a clearing.
As a chill atmosphere filled the air, I could only imagine who lived there last, who left it to succumb to the whims of the forest. I walked away with more haste than I arrived.
Sometimes you can never find these places again, sometimes there is a reason for that…………
