cliffs of moher-

Cause you can’t have too many shots of this majestic place. Actually there was a similar view which I can’t find at the moment (slide film and all), taken closer to the edge and showing a young (maybe 10 year old) kid on a small outcropping about 30 feet down from the foreground you see here. He had climbed over the edge with no safety gear whatsoever (well not counting perhaps the most valuable of all – his proprioceptive system – but still), and seemed totally comfortable there, as apparently did mom – standing near the edge with one eye on him and the other on the view.

inch boy-

Always loved this shot of summer and the shore, and childhood; there’s added resonance because one of our young nephews was known as “inch boy” around our house when he was real little. Who knew there was a town called Inch in the world, to say nothing of his Irish twin ?

irish street musicians-

Taken 20 years ago while rambling around southwest Ireland. Traditional music was just about everywhere, including on many street corners. One particularly fond memory was at a small bar where the (seated) musicians would play a song or two, then have a smoke (rolling their own) and some good conversation and a few laughs before launching into another song 5-10 minutes later. This went on pretty much for a full two hours. I loved it ! Taken on 35 mm slide film.

north of the laurentians-

Taken some 25 years ago on 35mm film. I drove north from Montreal, into the foothills of the Laurentians – a landscape ever more lonesome, mysterious, and beautiful the further in I went.

floating-5577

This balloon was airborne each morning I was out, probably lifting off before sunrise. I like how the wind and air currents are implied in this image, and how the rows of corn look a bit like underwater vegetation. It’s a glimpse of that huge ocean of air we all live in.
