Is it a Bird, Is it a Tree?

Giraffe in the woods

This old tree in Garryduff Woods, near Cork city, looks a lot like a giraffe about to take a nibble from the sweetest leaves at the top of the trees, or then again, it could be a very long legged horse. What do you see?

Cee’s Black & White Challenge : Toys for Kids and Adults

Toys, toys, toys, it’s coming to that time of the year again when we will have to get our thinking caps on and start shopping for presents …and there is no better present than a toy, whatever age you are!    Who wouldn’t like a train set, or a  make believe kitchen.

Let's see whats cooking!

And while the big boys are waiting for their dinner, they can amuse themselves on their phones and tablets!

Something for the big boys.

These photos were taken in Imaginosity in Dublin, where young and old can enjoy a world of make belief and imagination!

Daily Prompt : Happy Happy Joy Joy

Today’s Daily Prompt asks photographers to show Happy.   I can’t think of anything that represents this better than the following photo of my grandchildren, taken last year when we visited Imaginosity in Dublin.   This is a Children’s Museum,and is a creative and interactive space for children under 9 and their families.   If you have never been there, do visit with your little ones if you are in Dublin, it’s great fun.

The girls had a go in the Hurricane Simulator, and all we could hear from the outside, was their screams of delight and happiness.  The wind in there went upto about 78 mph- a bit like parts of Ireland at the moment, though thankfully this only lasted for a  minute or so.
