Traveling Through Old Photographs

The Isle of Man is my other home. I am tremendously saddened I won’t be seeing her beaches or my dear friends any time soon due to this pandemic. So instead, I’ll have to visit through old photographs.

I absolutely love my isle and the people of it.

Sheep, the hillsides, and the sea are often the subject of my photographs.

As an indigenous person myself, I am also fascinated with the culture and oral traditions of the indigenous people of the isle—the Manx.

Although the sea looks calm in this photograph, the isle is known for the fog covering its rolling hills like a thick woolen blanket. The Manx belief is that Manannán, the son of the sea god Lir, whom the island is named after, protects the island from outsiders by covering it with his cloak.
