[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
With the imprisoned look in the river Liffey, in Dublin, or in the fantastic green fields of Ireland, I left my memory to flow through the air that so many of my idols had also breathed before me; by memory I remember:
In literature James Joyce, W B Yeats, Samuel Becket, Oscar Wild, and G. Bernard Shaw;
In music, Dubliners, Pogues, Van Morrison, Sinnéad O'Connor, Bono Edge & C. (U2), and so many others;
In drinks, John Jameson and Arthur Guiness of the mythics whiskey and beer with their names.
Each one to its way had great importance in my life, as much to the pleasure level, as to knowledge level.
With the photo I present today (Phoenix Park) I homage the Irish and Gaelic culture, and to the wonderful Irish people.

Olá amigo José,

Um título excelente para uma magnífica fotografia, belíssima, onde o contraste entre luzes e sombras é ótimo e a presença humana dá um melhor senso de profundidade e põe em evidência o tamanho do obelisco. Uma crônica em dose dupla: escrita e fotografada.
Parabéns e um grande abraço,

Olá José,
Neste seu trabalho o pormenor ganha uma importância enorme no cômputo geral da composição. A minúscula figura do homem como elemento da composição agiganta-se como contraponto ao enorme “obelisco” equilibrando e dando homogeneidade à composição. Gosto mesmo muito deste seu trabalho.

HI Jose
With your memories you certainly do keep good company, and just to wander around and seeing such photo opportunities brings in great satistaction to the mind and the soul.

I am sorry I thought you were not around any more but I see that you did post some new shots. It is I that is not around as much as before.

Hi Jose,
Well balanced composition and good photographic vision. I loved light and texture of clouds Well choice of BW
