  1. Again a nice set of photos Adam. Like the one of Ella having a go at the apple… Are you using flash on or off the camera for the kiddie shots…effective. 1/4 power?

  2. That last photo looks like Crawfordsburn House which used to be the TB recuperation centre for the NI Health Authority back in the 50s….plenty of sea air to do the lungs good! Later became a geriatric hospital and I think now has been developed into private residential units. Remember it from my old scouting days when we ( 48th Belfast ) used to camp in the Crawfordsburn Scout Camp.
