Straight Out of the Camera Sunday

I took this in Cobh, Ireland, County Cork, in August 2003.
Cobh is the former Queenstown, the last port of call for the Titanic.
It was the departure point for 2.5 million who emigrated to
North America between 1848 and 1950.

  1. I love all the different colors. Great photo. I'd have to say Ireland is one country I would like to visit someday.

    Thoughts in Progress

  2. I hope you get to go ~ put it on your list of things to do, and go! It was my first (and only, so far, but I hope to rectify that soon) trip to Ireland, and after the short flight from NY to Shannon (it was about 5.5 hrs), when I landed, I thought, what the heck took me so long to get here? It truly is a beautiful country. The colors are phenomenal! Talk about 40 shades of green? How about 1000? My great grandmother left Ireland in 1881, and to my knowledge, never returned. I felt it was quite a full circle when I visited Ireland!
    Thanks for stopping by today, Mason!

  3. Wow! That is just so beautiful. Love the houses and colors.

  4. Thanks, Sheri! I visited Ireland with my mom, sister, and uncle. My uncle has been into photography forever, and he was the one who suggested I take that photo, at that angle. I'm glad he did!
    Happy Sunday!

  5. Whoa, what a steep hill to live on. I've added you to Mr. Linky.

  6. Many thanks, Jan!
    I'd be afraid my car would roll down the hill!

  7. I thought this shot was taken from San Francisco, very nice place. Happy Sunday!
