Don’t ignore the familiar!


October already!  Where has the year gone?  The last couple of blogs in September featured historical fragments of the old Belfast and County Down Railway, which closed in 1950.  The last blog centred on buildings in Ballygowan and in wandering around this small village I am struck how as a photographer we tend to ignore what is in our own backyard.

This is what led me to take this photograph, I either walk or drive down this road every day with the result that to me it is just very ordinary.  Taken just a couple of days ago looking down The Brae towards the centre of Ballygowan, the old railway building can be seen in the distance, just to continue the railway theme theme!  The row is terrace housing in the foreground are said to be the oldest buildings in Ballygowan.
