The Weekend in Black and White.


My favourite local restaurant, the Butter Rock, has been refurbished.
This decoration is now on the wall, a reminder of the the day the S.V. Andrew Nugent was wrecked.





This is the story of the name.


Many great black and white photos can be found through the links on the Home Page,

That is an interesting bit of history. I really like the close-up, it shows the details of the art so well. Is the art 3-D?

Love the design of the wall feature! It seems poised on a large wave in the first photo and the second photo highlights some interesting textures!
