Famine to Feast

Uploaded: October 19, 2007


aperture,f 11; shutter,25seconds; iso,100.
The sculptures in the foreground are in memory of the Irish famine victims of the 1840s. Very different story today. Dublin, Ireland.
Trying out my night time shooting!

John's right, Patricia ~ you should definitely explore shooting more of Dublin's night sights, because your exposure here is as good as your composition. Fine reflections, too.

Such a sad, touching memorial ~ gave me the same feeling as the first time I saw Van Gogh's "The Potato Eaters". Different country - same gaunt features and look of desperation. We are so fortunate to live as well as we do! #4957830
