The Real Ireland

I found this photo by Eve Arnold in my email yesterday. I don't know where, or how long ago, it was taken - but for me it really captures something of the real Ireland.

The daughter with striking red hair and (almost certainly) a hand knitted cardigan making the soda bread conscientiously and in the traditional way (the pan is then baked in the open hearth). The father, simple, content, and looking on proudly & the young boy, sullen yet mischievous, in the background - also red haired and befreckeled. And all of it in a simple, practical rustic setting that is somehow deeply satisfying.

It's a great shot!

Hm, that is a nice photo. Having been here long enough now (5+ months), I can appreciated a lot more of this photo than I would have before. :)
