“Wild Ways” is the twelfth Chapbook or Photozine from Simon, based on his personal photography.
This Chapbook “Wild Ways” is A5 in size, made up of 36 pages and featuring 21 photos captured by Simon. Thoughtfully printed on quality, heavy-duty paper (more details below), only 200 will ever be printed of these limited-edition chapbooks. Each one is numbered.

The Wild Atlantic Way
There had been a plan to walk from Manchester to Rome in 2020. It was thwarted by SARS-CoV-2 restrictions in 2020 and again in 2021. I considered walking one of the world’s longest defined coastal routes instead. The Wild Atlantic Way traces the rugged, indented western coast of Ireland, some 2600 km, the same distance as those pilgrim trails the pandemic put beyond reach.
I used an old camper van to explore some of the route, only to confirm what others had warned. The Wild Atlantic Way was designed to be driven, perhaps cycled. It’s certainly not safely walkable along the whole of its length.
My summer excursions to several sections reminded me that it is an amazing coastline. Maybe there will come a day when the Wild Atlantic Way is upgraded with safe pathways and the hostelries needed to accommodate the tens of thousands that would surely come if it became a unified, national hiking trail.
