The Shoot

The Shoot: An Ecumenical Matter

Hello world,

This is a bit of an oddball of a shoot. It was done back in the west of Ireland while visiting my mum and the idea came upon me while scouring through all the old sheds and outhouses that probably hadn’t been touched for years before Mum moved in.

Anyone who knows a little about the Irish knows it’s not that odd to find old religious paintings in the shed, but the amount found here surprised even me. The previous owners looked like they had developed a bit of a collection.

What really struck me when I saw them was how traditionally Irish the entire setting was and how beautiful in it’s own way it was too; the ivy creeping into the shed through the old broken windows, the dresser and half-decayed paintings and the wild Connemara wilderness right outside our door.


So maybe this theme is a little overt, but it’s kinda soothing too and I got a chance to show off my polka dot skirt from my recent find here. The only thing is that the lighting couldn’t show off the brightness of the skirt, bit you win some you lose some.
Let me know what you think.

Until then,




Fresh out of college with an MA in Journalism, a passion for clothes, fashion and styling shoots, I was also the fashion editor of a magazine my colleagues and I set up called SCOPE magazine, which was disbanded three years ago. For now I'm just a freelance journalist and blogger.
Other than obsessing about fashion, I love theology and history, writing apocalyptic fiction (it's weird, I know!) and the occasional weeekend of horse-riding if I have the time and I don't injure myself in the process.
