Stable Yard

I love wandering around Dublin, and one evening while exploring the fine Georgian streets I watched as a horse drawn carriage trundled between the houses. Following I discovered this stable yard where the horses were being groomed and settled for the night.

      1. Well, I blame our problems on that guy Noah Webster.


        Somehow the American spelling strikes at the roots of the word and while grey is potentially rather chic and certainly refined; gray is soulless and leaden like a battleship.

        So I might consider grey as having a period feel, a French grey, maybe which with a certain pale yellow might be seen as very fashionable in Regency times, whereas gray is unremittingly dark and threatening like the onset of a storm; like a dead soldiers pallor, like those Crimean cannonballs photographed by Roger Fenton on the field of battle.

        Says he with tongue firmly in cheek….
