BOOK TITLE PHOTOGRAPHS

Since digital cameras came on the scene, like most people, I hardly ever print out photos. Which might be OK as I already have tons of photo albums cluttering up the cabinet. But I love photos, so over Christmas I sat down and went through my 2009 shots and picked two or three pics from every 'event' and got them printed out. Next stop 2010...

While doing it I came across photos I had taken from a series I started back then - and promptly forgot about - namely getting shots of shopfronts with the names of my books on them.

Some of my titles, like To The World of Men, Welcome and The Wind Across the Grass may have to be montages/collages, but here are two from Dublin that work 100%:

 CROWN ALLEY, TEMBLE BAR, DUBLIN

SUFFOLK STREET, DUBLIN

Neat, eh? I shall have to choose the titles of my next fiction books with care! My forthcoming poetry collection is called The Juno Charm. We did see a shop called Juno in New York and there's Junos in Parkgate Street in Dublin but, again, it'll be a case of cut 'n' paste. Ah, it'll keep me occupied in those hours where baby makes writing impossible.

JUNO, NEW YORK

Love the photos! The tattoo one is very artsy. Also, Juno is quite the cutie. :)

Thanks Eimear. This is the kind of side-tracky activity I thoroughly enjoy! Happy New Year, girl. N x

This is very cool! I love the other notice undeneath the Juno one - "sprinkler throughout building" - that would be my son!
