I used to pass this guest house every day on my way to school when I was in Ireland. I started the drawing by sketching what I remembered and then added in aspects of the real place. (Thank you Google street view!)

The best part is my memory looks nothing like the reality. In fact all I really had right was that there was a building and a curve in the road.

I think I’ll try this exercise again it kinda blew my mind.

Here is the link to the real place:,&sll=53.106875,-9.155688&sspn=0.007362,0.012048&ie=UTF8&t=h&rq=1&ev=zi&split=1&radius=0.3&hq=guest+house+,&hnear=&ll=53.106361,-9.155724&spn=0.007362,0.012048&z=17&layer=c&cbll=53.106361,-9.155724&panoid=B3A0bpY17r_5wdRr3UHwJw&cbp=12,141.97„0,-1.49

Checked out the link you posted, really cool! I can definitely see the bend in the road and the stonework in your drawing, but it's definitely interesting how one remembers things so differently. Thanks for sharing!
