They’re everywhere: Fences from here and there
I was surprised at how many fence pictures I have. After going through my archives looking specifically for fences I realized that I have a tendency t use them as framing elements in photos.
Irish country road
Going through some old pictures from our trip to Ireland in 2013. These are from a day trip through the Gap of Dunloe in McGillicuddy Reeks in Killarney. Time seems to go by fast, yet so much has happened since that it seems like both yesterday and a lifetime ago at the same time.

Garinish Garden Path
These were taken on a path through the lush gardens of Garinish, in Ireland.
Garinish is an island near the Ring of Kerry. For some reason (maybe because so many of the same plants we saw there are blooming right now) I’ve been thinking about it lately. It was a driving challenge to get there from where we were staying in Killarney, but the travel was through beautiful country and well worth the white knuckles through a few stretches. It’s not super well known.
Here are a few candid pictures of kids from my archives for Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge. All of these pictures were taken in color. I experimented with the black and white presets in Adobe Lightroom. At first I wondered why they had so many, but each picture looked best with a different setting. This is the first time I have experimented with the black and white settings in Lightroom.
Way More Than Five Hats
These pictures are from a shop in Killarney. I have never seen so many hats in one place. It seemed so Irish.
I was reminded of these pictures by Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: More Than 5 Items
