Every Tuesday, we share photographs from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.
Ballintoy Harbour (Northern Ireland)
Part of the Game Of Thrones Tour I did while in Dublin last year was a visit to the Ballintoy Harbour in Northern Ireland.
According to Wikipedia:
The village was used for the fictional town of Lordsport in the Isle of Pyke second season of HBO’s medieval fantasy television series Game of Thrones. The filming at the harbour took place on 18, 19 and 22 August 2011, and from 15 August there was a limited public access to the zone. The local shops and fishermen, who had to temporarily berth their boats in Ballycastle, were compensated by the production.
And who are you, the proud Lord said
that I must bow so low?
Only a cat of a different coat,
that’s all the truth I know.
In a coat of gold or a coat of red,
a lion still has claws.
And, mine are as long and sharp, my Lord
as long and sharp as yours.
And so he spoke, and so he spoke,
that Lord of Castamere,
but now the rains weep o’er his hall,
with no one there to hear.
Yes, now the rains weep o’er his hall,
and not a soul to hear.
