Mórrígan

“Rising up into the air, they took to the sky and flew. From west and beyond west, into the wind and through it, they came past countless moons and suns. One laughed and briefly wore a scarf of raindrops in her hair, and then with wicked feet she kicked a cloud and caused rain to swamp a boat.”
Pat O’Shea, The Hounds of the Mórrígan

I read The Hounds of the Mórrígan so many years ago, and I don’t really remember the story very well. But I do remember how much I enjoyed it, the humour, the wit, the imagination.

I think I’ll dig it up from where I stashed it and enjoy it again.

      Hey, Alex, I’ve seen you found my boards 🙂
      Happy we connected there too. Pinterest is the first social I joined and still one of my favourite. I’m trying to learn to use it in an effective way… but I don’t think I’m there yet.
      How do you like it?

    Hi….I have never read this book but really like the quote. The imagery is great. The photos you post remind of why photography is still a profession.

      Ah, really there are some great photos out there!

      I’ve read the book so many years ago, but I still remember it was great fun. Then, a few weeks ago, I found an hard copy in a flee market for just a couple euro. Couldn’t resist 🙂

    Some great imagery again. I’ve seen some of them before, but enjoyed being reminded of them. In particular, my favourites remain numbers 2, 6, 9, and 10. Not seen number 14 before, but I’ll add that to my favourites! 😉

      I like n. 10 a lot too. I’ve collected quite a few photos with this idea: the forest and the red Leaves looking like blood. There’s an idea nugging at me there, but I cant pin it down. Mhm…
      I use my collection of photos to create these, so sometimes they got repeaded. But you know… sometimes you have to use just that one pic 😉

    Ooh, I’ve never heard of this book but from the quote and your moodboard I went to check it out. It’s definitely one to add to the To Read list!!! I love these moodboards that you do, it’s such a different way to of capturing a book.

      Celine, I’m sure you’ll love the book!

      I’m happy you guys seem to appreciate my moodboards (now that’s a fantastic word!). I have fun making them… and sometimes an idea strings up 🙂

      Have you seen the Ombretta Vivaldi series I’ve posted last winter? I really enjoyed making that one. I like Ombretta a lot and I’m trying to create her story. Let’s see.
