Easter Sunday Parade in Dingle... a bit of history ... back in 1916 there was an uprising on Easter Sunday against British rule in Ireland .. all the leaders were executed which led to  a war of Independence and ultimately created the Irish Free State (The Irish Republic) and Northern Ireland
Long neck Padaung woman, Inle Lake, Myanmar  The Padaung tribe, also called Kayan Lahwi, are a subgroup of the ethnic Karen people.    Girls first start to wear brass rings, as a form of cultural identity, when they are around five years old, gradually adding more turns as they get older. The weight of the brass pushes the collar bone down and compresses the rib cage. According to Wikipedia, the neck itself is not lengthened; the appearance of a stretched neck is created by the deformation of the collar bone. The coils are rarely removed and the neck muscles under the coil become weakened.  In recent times, due to discouragement by the government of ring wearing, some women have been removing their coils.  Portraits of older and younger women, with more, and with fewer, rings can be seen here, and also a couple of photos of a long neck woman weaving using a backstrap loom:  http://goo.gl/8r1RDL  21/04/14 www.allenfotowild.com
20.04.14 - Adam/William  One of the things we try to do on our historic film projects is recreate old photographs or paintings. For "Tell Them of Us" we have several family photos and have had great fun getting our actors in similar settings/poses. This particular one looked so uncanny that I went a step further and morphed the two images into one.  Today we are digging our own trench in a local wood and filming a scene representing Northern France.
04-21-2014 - It was confusing when I took the picture trying to determine what was and was not reflection.  Looking at the image now I'm more confused...          Link to Photo Without Frame
Freedom Bridge Opened a year ago, this pedestrian and bicycle bridge connects Austria (Schloss Hof) to Slovakia (Devínska Nová Ves - near Bratislava) over the March/Morava River.  The original bridge was built in 1771, but often destroyed - most recently by the iron curtain.  Twenty-five years after the end of the Soviet Union, it still feels strange to be able to just stroll across what used to be a heavily defended border. (This is a telephoto shot - you are seeing about 300m of bridge, so the slopes are not really quite so steep.)
February 25...  Beach #7.  Hope you are not getting tired of pictures from my beach. If not I have a few more to come. I am proud that a TV station has shown 2 of the previous beach-pictures at prime time.
