Thanks for your compliment on my photos and for commiserating with me for a moment of griping about the new editor. May it be the worst of our problems in the world. Ha!
I’ve been to the Irish hunger Memorial and your perspective is a good one.

Thank you Cynthia!

What a great location, the horizontal banding on the walls really do add greatly to the perspective. A really great submission for the Silhouette Challenge.

Neat photo. Welcome to the Catholic blog directory. I’d like to invite you to participate in Sunday Snippets–A Catholic Carnival. We are a group of bloggers who gather weekly to share our best posts with each other. This week’s host post is at http://rannthisthat.blogspot.com/2014/08/sunday-snippets-catholic-carnival_16.html
Thank you! I will look into your blog.

I LOVE the Irish Hunger Memorial (if ‘love’ is the right thing to say about a memorial…?). It’s so bizarre how it’s in the Financial District and yet it really does feel like Ireland. I went during the winter, when it was so cold and windy, and I truly believed I was on the Emerald Isle.

Yeah, it was unexpected. It’s interesting how the entrance is quite modern but then once “inside” the memorial, you are surrounded by natural materials – the rocks, grass, and flowers, but you still see the tall skyscrapers especially the World Trade Center building towering above you.
Thank you for the visit and comment!

That’s a great photo – I like the way the “tunnel” guides the eye into the distance but then lingers on the people before continuing to see what’s outside.

Thank you so much Annette!

I’ve been to the memorial and think it’s terrific. Would not have connected your shot with it until I read the title. Lovely capture from a very interesting perspective, perfect for the challenge.

Thank you so much Tina! I have shots facing the other direction but the lighting didn’t work well for me that way. I took this as we were leaving the memorial but I didn’t think calling this the “exit” sounded right. Maybe I should say “exiting the memorial” since “entrance” makes you think the background is part of the memorial. What do you think?

Hmmm…..Good question. I don’t love “exiting” either, because they seem to be kind of hanging there. Maybe “Post-Visit, Irish Hunger Memorial”? Implies they’ve seen it and the overhang isn’t part of it. It’s a conundrum!

It’s interesting composition, I like it very much 🙂
