I took this photo - ‘Number 26' - happens to be the number of my own house - when on assignment at a development in Delgany with a wonderful backdrop of hills and windswept trees lining the top. I had the feeling that I could be at home here. The developer, Cosgrave Developments, as always had shown a great sensitivity to the environment and some very large trees that existed on the original land were preserved along with generous surrounding open space. I caught the reflection of one of these giant trees in the number on the front wall of one of the gated properties.
To me it seemed the perfect way to reflect the presence of these great works of nature and their grandeur and how close to nature I would feel if I lived here.
