I needed to pay a little more attention to the newer shop, so I've listed two new photographs.
The first, available here, is a photograph I took at the Rock of Cashel in County Tipperary, Ireland, in the spring of 2009. It was a beautiful day and a beautiful place. Hopefully, my memories and feelings show through in the photo.
I remember the day well, as well as the day before. We'd actually gotten to Cashel the night before, intending to go straight to the Rock, see it, and then head on to the next town. Well, we got there just a few minutes after they let in the last wave of people. The ruins aren't artificially lighted, so they're really serious about not allowing latecomers. I was really disappointed, until Eric reminded me that it was actually a day earlier than I thought it was - I so lose track of time when on vacation.
So that evening, we found a B&B and went to a dinner, probably the only one during our 10 days in Ireland that was at all disappointing. What came after was awesome, though. We consoled ourselves by going for a drink at a local pub, where we met some guys who heard our accents, found out we were on our honeymoon, and took us partying, first to another local pub with a band, and then to a club where the father of one of the guys was DJing at a private party we crashed.
While dancing at the club, Eric's foot got stomped by an Irish girl with big wooden-soled shoes, so the next morning when we got up and had breakfast, he was still pretty pained. We walked the Rock anyway, and the grandeur of it almost made him forget his foot.
The second, available here, is a perfect red rose that was growing in my front yard in 2010 here in NJ. I was able to find an angle that gave me the sky as background, and it's one of my favorite shots; so much so that it's the background wallpaper of my cell phone and has been for 3 successive phones now.
I've also added a third washcloth to the shop, this one in sprout green cotton bamboo with gardenia yellow racing stripes at both ends. Soft and absorbent as ever, I really love the color scheme.
So... whatcha think?
