RECYCLED TREES IN THE PEOPLES PARK

MY PHOTO DIARY

A GOOD IDEA - RECYCLED TREES

The Peoples Park in Limerick City was forced to close for two weeks in February 2014 after Storm Darwin destroyed or badly damaged nineteen trees.

On the nineteen one was one was especially important as it was both old and rare. The an ornamental tree called a ‘Tetradium Danielli” which was about 80 or 90 years old. It is also known as a Bee Bee tree because it's late summer flowers attract very large numbers of bees. The park supervisor decided that it would be a good idea to invite Zambian woodcarver Paradazi Havatyitye to carve three bees in the remaining stump.

Photography is my hobby and as my resources are limited it is difficult for me to build a site which includes the complete catalogue of my work which consists of more than 120,000 photographs. Recently a number of visitors have mentioned that they are finding it difficult to find specific photographs so I have added a Google Custom Search facility which will allow any interested party to carry out a keyword search of my catalogue. Example: If you want to find photographs of Public Art By John Kindness all you need to do is enter Public + Art + Kindness into the search-box below. When I tested the search engine I was amazed to discover that any word that I entered resulted in at least one relevant photograph - give it a try and see what you find.
