December 17 - 23, 2013 "Happy Christmas to you" from Ireland. 🙂
With the time and weather changing, Ireland is a much colder, darker place and I'm still adjusting to it. With only about 9 hours of daylight, it gets harder to good photos (plus everything else I need to do in the daylight), but I'll get there. Or, maybe it's time to focus on some good night shots! But, for this week, here is a reflection of a weeping willow in the canal.
It's feeling and looking like fall here in Ireland. I went on a jog to Herbert Park (one of my favorites that I used to live by). The ducklings I used to watch have all grown up, but on this day, a Blue Heron was perched on the side of the pond surrounded by falling leaves.
Saw a keg pick up at this iconic corner on a quiet morning.
Here's a quick shot I got of the Ha'penny bridge over the Liffey in Dublin.
Just on my way to go shopping, looked over, and and loved this composition. Here's to this new, funny, European, city life!
I found this billboard/artwork near my apartment and it made me smile.
... Our new apartment is in the area of Dublin called Rathmines. We're told it's nice, young, has lots going on, and is a good location. So far we've found that to be true. Looking forward to getting to know our new home better!
We went on another great day trip this weekend. This time on a tour through Dún Laoghaire, Dalkey, and Killiney. Dún Laoghaire was a beautiful seaside town, we took a tour of a castle in Dalkey and had a great walk to Killiney including this amazing view.
