Ahhh…. hello there again…. todays post is well…. u probably saw it before u even read this!! Those who know me know one thing I am passionate about is my photography… so I thought I’d share some of this passion with y’all :> What ur looking at is a photograph I took of Saint Finbarr’s Cathedral in Cork City. It was built in the 19th century in honour of the patron saint of Cork (duh!). Now the story of how I came about to take this picture is actually quite funny:
I was chilling at a friends house one day after classes munching on a bar of Dairy milk chocolate when I took a peek out the window at the cathedral… the sun was just setting and the sky was the colour of the warm organic honey my mama used to shove down our throats as children (everyday!!! I tried to avoid it by sleeping in a little extra… doesn’t work!)…. AAAANNNYWHOO…. I quickly jumped up, snagging a whole toe on the coffee table to fetch my camera from my backpack to take this shot. Et voilá! Totally worth the blinding pain of my toe AND my picture had a story to tell!
I like this photograph for a number of reasons, one being the feeling that sunset gave me when I first set my eyes on it, like there was an explosion of warmth and passion right behind that building! On another note, I’d love to get your feedback on what you think of this photograph! (I DID use a film camera to take this picture and it didn’t exactly scan perfectly but thanks to Mish it looks muy better than the original scan! Phew)
Now that I’ve conquered the craziness surrounding the fear of showing my photographs to people, you will be seeing more and more of them! I plan to take my #2 trip to the Lough this weekend if the weather stays this nice or if I’m really lucky I’ll go to Fota Island and shoot the penguins!
And that ladies and gents concludes post number 3 of Mollie’s Blog of Stuff. Thank you for tuning in!
