Counterpoint

A young man befriends an old guy who’s sitting on the sidewalk while over the road a street performer sings and strums a guitar. As a counterpoint, two women, both dressed in white, provide framing and a sense of depth to the scene.

Temple Bar, Dublin.

Sky High

I rarely attempt a montage and I’m not sure that this one is entirely successful but it has gone into a club competition which is due for judging on 14th February.

The Lake

This is Manxman’s Lake, or simply, The Lake, and is an inlet on the eastern side of Kirkcudbright Bay. It gets its name from being the landing place of marauding raiders from the Isle of Man (which lies in the middle of the Irish Sea). Apparently on one raid they set the town of Kirkcudbright afire. The inhabitants of the Isle of Man are known as Manxmen, and these days maraud no more, earning their shilling by entertaining holiday makers.

National Scenic Area

Fleet Bay in Dumfries & Galloway, Scotland is designated a National Scenic Area but discussion is taking place about the possibility of the whole region becoming a National Park. The quality of the landscape is a big factor and if this comes to pass, the impact through increased tourism would be of huge benefit to this quiet farming and fishing economy.
