“Beware the Risen People”, Kilmainham Gaol, Dublin, Ireland

Time for another repost.  As always, you can view the original post by clicking on the picture.

“Beware of the Risen People, that have harried and held, Ye that have bullied and bribed.” The words graffiti-ed on the wall are by Patrick Henry Pearse, who was executed in Kilmainham Gaol for his part in the Easter Rising.

Cliffs of Moher (II), Ireland

Cliffs of Moher (II), Ireland

There’s a general lack of sunset pictures on this blog, mostly because I’m very picky about what I photograph in front of them (the lack of sunrises, on the other hand, is purely down to my desire to be asleep at that time of the morning).  Still, I think the Cliffs of Moher make an impressive compliment for even the most amazing sunset.

When you are taking pictures on a small boat, in fairly choppy seas where the Atlantic Ocean meets Europe, you can expect some blurry pictures.  And every so often, you get a happy accident 🙂

No, the original wasn’t this blurry – in fact, at the size I post things on the blog it probably would have passed as sharp – but I could see the hints of something interesting and decided to run with it.  Let’s just say this is another of those inspired by Impressionism pictures.  (It also looks a lot better on a black background, but since that isn’t something I can do on this blog you’ll just have to trust me on that one.)
