Kilmainham Gaol, Dublin, Ireland

(viewed 1471 times)
Kilmainham is a powerful place, drenched in Irish history. The final shot is of the Victorian wing, built on the theory of the Panopticon by Jeremy Bentham. Fewer men could control greater numbers of prisoners by their ability to see in all directions. The powerful combination of sight and control, evident here, is also something which relates to photography.

Not only can one see everything in this prison palace, the acoustics are incredibly good, so guards could also hear conversations. As a result, this open part of Kilmainham is used for performances.

The prison door of Eaomon de Valera. He went on to become a president of the Irish Republic. Many others however, were executed, by the British and the Irish. Now Ireland has new kinds of troubles, better ones.

(viewed 664 times)
Frizzle is almost finished supertraining and will be a vision dog. Her trainer had to take a trip to visit prospective clients, find the special fit for the dogs who are almost done she asked if the Frizz could come for a week. Frizz has strict rules and must live a quiet life, pause at every step, ignore other my friend Maggie and I took her to Cherry Beach, just to make her happy. Since then we have been following the rules.

my plane in a rainbow, and more clouds

(viewed 816 times)
I have only seen the plane in a rainbow once before. It is a good sign, I think. Clouds are the most wonderful things to photograph.

I am in Ireland to see my son Andy graduate this week.
