AN un­usual take on a well­known land­mark has se­cured a lo­cal am­a­teur pho­tog­ra­pher a cov­eted spot in the Top Oil 2018 cal­en­dar.

Su­sanna Braswell from Wick­low town won the Peo­ple’s Choice award with her quirky im­age of a vin­tage teddy bear gaz­ing out the win­dow at the beau­ti­ful gar­dens of Pow­er­scourt in En­niskerry (right).

Su­sanna, who is a mem­ber of Wick­low Pho­tog­ra­phy Club, was one of just 11 fi­nal­ists se­lected from over 2,000 en­tries to com­pete for the Peo­ple’s Choice slot in the cal­en­dar.

Su­sanna cap­tured her im­age at Tara’s Palace Mu­seum of Child­hood, which is lo­cated up­stairs at Pow­er­scourt House. The mu­seum is home to Ire­land’s largest pe­riod doll’s house and a large se­lec­tion of vin­tage and his­toric toys.

The mu­seum is staffed by vol­un­teers and all prof­its from ad­mis­sions and birth­day par­ties go to chil­dren’s char­i­ties in Ire­land.

Su­sanna took the pic­ture dur­ing a birth­day party held at the mu­seum for her own daugh­ter. She is es­pe­cially de­lighted that that pub­li­ca­tion of her photo will help to bring the char­ity work of the vol­un­teers at Tara’s Palace Mu­seum to a wider au­di­ence.
