Comments:I found this site by typing in Portadown. I am trying to find my lale mother's family. My mother's maiden name was Ramsey. I remember many years ago my Aunt used to take me to someones house. Two sisters lived next door to each other and I think it was near a tunnel or bridge. I think their husbands were in the building trade. I remember a daughter with long blonde hair and glasses. If this rings a bell with anyone I would love to hear from them. I really enjoyed looking at this site. Thank-you. marlena@moonshinehollow.com

Comments:Dean, I visited your site on the recommendation of a friend. I must say I've never seen Portadown portrayed in such a positive light. It's only when you see our wee town through eyes like your own that you realise it may not be such a bad place after all. You have managed to capture a very wonderful side of a place that has unfortunately been decimated by bitterness and hatred over the years. Your work is a credit to you, your beliefs are exemplary and I wish you continued success with your stunning photography. Just an amateur, you say...........pretty good for an amateur!! Cheers, peace to you and all.

Comments:Hi. These pictures are great! Nice one! I am going to America as part of a cross comunity project in 2 weeks where i will be staying with a host family for four weeks. These pictures will be of great interest to them. I don't think many people of Portadown realise how beautiful their town is in a variety of ways and that a number of people are constantly trying to improve it. My step dad is a landscape gardener who trys to make our estate more attractive by planting shrubs on Rectory's roundabout. It has made such a difference! Anyway, well done mate!

All of the nature photos are so beautiful & show the "hidden" Portadown we discoverd as kids. As for "Sign of the Times", me thinks it could be Ormeau Park??

A new vision of "the ordinary"...thanks. found you via Courrier International, by the way.
