Einar is the name of my house on Westray in Orkney. It’s an old school, formerly the Skelwick Academy School, and many of the people on the Island went to school there. It has seen better days and with a lot of work may see them again. Many Islanders had their photographs taken on the front steps as part of their class photograph. Their memories form an important record of past times, with written accounts of an island childhood kept by the Westray Heritage Centre.

The HALL of EINAR is the name for my blog, written when on the Island. It has my photographs (taken with a Nikon D300) and snapshots (taken with an iPhone and the My Hipstamatic application) and random musings on life, woodlice and fresh vegetables.
