Hairy Pigs on Easdale Island

Post by Lynn and Paul Henni

Having summoned the ferry to take us from Easdale village to Easdale Island by pressing the bell, we thought we’d probably be back on the next scheduled one about half an hour later.  After all, it’s a small island and we had visited it previously.  We had not anticipated the lure of the woolly pig or the blonde Mangalica pig, according to Wikipedia.

We found a sign saying ‘Pigs’ and followed the direction in which it pointed.  We came across a sunken area with a couple of these lovely Mangalica snoozing away – this is the female.

Once we got closer, we realised that there was a large litter of tiny piglets sprawled over the male pig – we later established they were about 2 weeks old.  They started to move around as we got closer.

Clearly, it was tea-time so they all made for the mother and started suckling.  She did her best to sleep on.

After a lot of wriggling, they managed to line up so they could all get in to feed.

Happy little piglets!

Once fed, they all toddled off.

And back to dad – perhaps he has more body heat but the challenge was for the whole litter to climb on top of him and find a secure perch.

There were several false starts and not all climbing was elegant.

Some tried a double-decker approach to hold on.

Eventually, they managed to form a neat line although the one at the end didn’t look to secure and more wriggling, slipping and re-climbing followed.

Looking quite contented here.

They look much more comfortable lying snuggled up next to their dad – well, apart from the one underneath but it looked happy enough.

The sow slept on presumably happy that the boar was looking after their little family.

If you want to visit the pigs, they are owned by the folk who run the Easdale B&B which looks like a very peaceful place to stay.

Finally, a short summary of what we have on show in Edinburgh at the moment.

henni.photo Prints and Etchings at 3 locations

Currently, our prints and etchings are on display at McDonald-Greene Jewellers in Bruntsfield,  at Dundas Street Framers and in the Art Collective at 139 Princes Street.  All work is for sale and ready to take away, but please feel free just to go and have a look and tell us what you think. Nothing beats seeing a print on the wall – you get a much better idea of it than on a screen.

An Overdue Update #Edinburgh #Photography

There’s a common theme amongst bloggers where they talk about a lack of recent posts and being busy with things, so here’s our contribution to this without the long discussion about it.

Firstly, here are a few recent images, which would have been in the now non-existent posts from the past wee while.

And a reminder of the Retina International Photography Festival 2017, now in the final weeks so a last chance to see the Royal Photographic Society exhibition at the Drill Hall which finishes tomorrow and the Emerging Talent and Shutter Hub exhibitions, both at Ocean terminal and which finish on Sunday 30th.

A henni.photo update #Edinburgh #Photography

It’s probably time for a wee round up, as we’ve had a busy 2016 that continues into 2017.

Retina Scottish International Photography Festival June – July 2017

Having been part of the Retina Scottish International Festival 2016, it is good to see the plans for this year’s Festival, which will run from the 17h of June to the 30th July. Lynn has recently joined the Retina Team as a board member and Paul is working as one of the volunteers.

The Festival 2017 line-up is now out, including details of the Photomarathon and Portfolio Reviews. All funds raised contribute to keeping the Festival running and making sure that access to the exhibitions remains free. You can also donate online or at each of the exhibitions.

Art Collective launch night

There’ll be a launch night on Thursday the 15th June from 18:00 until 21:00, so a chance to come along, see what it is all about about and meet the artists.

Here is a small selection of what we have currently on show in The Art Collective and The Dark Room.

People in Florence

Now that the sun has come out in Scotland, it feels like the right time to look back at our trip to Italy last year and do some more blog posts.  We spent a few days in that beautiful city Florence and a post on the art and architecture will follow.  But I thought I’d start with the people – we like street photography and Florence is full of people – you can’t move without tripping over tourists doing selfies or snapping each other with tablets.  However, we tried to focus on the people who live and work in Florence. for instance, this doorman outside a posh hotel.

The priest with his traditional robes somewhat at odds with the modern technology in his hands.

Locals cycling round the many, many tourists

Or stopping to answer that vital text.

Or pedestrians taking that important call.

Or just sitting reading a book.

People live their lives despite the bustle of the visitors all around them.

A Quiet Moment. Photo by and copyright of Lynn Henni. #Italy #Italia #Florence #Firenze #Tuscany #Tuscany #Florentine #Fiorentia #City #Urban #European

And even manage to find quiet routes away from the hurly burly.

Having said all that, a post on people in Florence can’t ignore the tourists – and it’s hard to photography some of the main sights without tourists in shot.  The replica of Michelangelo’s David outside the  Palazzo Vecchio is impossible to photograph without visitors passing by so I embraced them as part of the shot.

And you cannot avoid the crowds outside the Uffiizi if you want to visit its treasures.
