I have forgotten the town name, but it was about two thirds of the way across from Dublin to Sligo

this photo recently got a little extra attention on flickr and it is one of my favourite shots from my trip to Ireland, and so I blogged it.

Greenwich, a photographic view

I was rummaging through some old diskettes and came across this scan file of a photo print of Greenwich, England. This is from a trip either in 1993 or 1996. More likely 93. I love London and have been there three times. Maybe I will get back soon. The camera in question a Pentax PZ-1 and a 28-80 Pentax FA zoom lens 3.5 – 4.5 aperture. I went to the National Maritime Museum there but was lazy and did not walk all the way up the hill to the Observatory. Near where my cruise boat docked two ships were berthed: Chichester’s solo global circumnavigation tiny ship and the Cutty Sark. In those days you could tour aboard the Cutty Sark. Now I believe it is in dire need of restoration.
