Ireland


Meanwhile two weeks ago my good friend Henriette and I spent a weekend in Dublin

Liffey

On friday, our first day in Ireland, we explored Dublin.
We saw the castle, 
one of Dublin's cathedrals,
beautiful streets
and visited arcades and 
temple bar - Dublin's cultural and creative quarter...

In Temple Bar we saw hugh paintings at tall houses,
ate deliciouse tomato mozarella baguettes with fresh rocket salad 
and drunk hot chocolate with marshmallows at a cute restaurant.  
There we found funny pillows and lots of different and coloured lamps^.^
Trinity College, Dublin



The St. Stephen´s Green is a city centre public park
It is adjacent to Grafton Street, one of Dublin's main shooping streets. 
The rectangular park covers an area of 9 hectare and is surrounded by streets.

We visited the arcades and found old and charming books - 'Alice in wonderland' for instance with beautiful illustrations.
I marveled at the entrances and all the small things all over the city.
Later when sun went down anit becamdark I did some bulb exposures.

The next day: 
Howht. 
Okay, don´t be frightened: The weather and the landscape were indescribably beautiful so that I couldn't stop photographing. 
Therefore a flood of images follows. 

On our journey we met a lot of interessting and lovely people.Everybody we talked to thought we are sisters - one cute girl in a small bistro even asked if we are twins.
It was so funny when we explained that we are just friends with the same haircut - no one believed.
Before wset out for our ramble again, we did some "double Lottie" photos.

We hiked a few hours and were glad when finally the train back to Dublin arrived at the train station . We were played out.
But - after dinner we felt reinvirogated and visited Dublin for bulb exposures at night again. 
These photos originated over the Liffey at O'Connell Brigde.
(The photos are still improvable)

Sunday - our last day started with a superior breakfast. I ate tasty pancakes with natural yoghurt and melon. 
In search of guiness for my love we walked through the city again and finally drove to aiport.

Many thanks for the perfect time on ground and in the air, Henriette!
(Do you remeber the acute traffic lights sound ?)
