The “light” of the Irish

Irish, Keltic Krust, St. Patrick, light, window, bakery, cafe, iphone 5, snapseed

Sometimes the stars align: the light, the subject, the time of year, all come together.  One more from the Keltic Krust, the West Newton bakery/café with a distinctive Irish theme, recently visited with my daughter.  Our table was next to this low window sill, which was decorated with red fruit and some books about Ireland.  The morning light cast a shadow through the glass of the lettered window, and there it all was, and only a few weeks before St. Patrick’s Day.

To all of you true Irishmen, and to those like me who are “honorary leprechauns” by virtue of marriage, I say “Sláinte agus táinte!” (Health and wealth).

(I found that on the internet so it must be right! )

    For the love of Ireland, this photo should be enlarged and hanging on the walls of every Irish pubs! “God invented whiskey so the Irish wouldn’t rule the world”. You sure are right Ed, the light the subject and the timing are all perfect! Well done. One more Irish saying “A good laugh and a long sleep are the best cures in a doctor’s book”. Amen and Hallelujah!

    Great shot, Ed, beautiful light and color, looks like a great place! My mouth is watering after looking at their photos and menu! Wishing it was just little closer to my part of the country… : )

  3. Such an eclectic mix of materials and images which gel into one unique composition. Great shot, and timely, too!

    You photo reminds me of this Irish Blessing!

    “May you always have…
    Walls for the winds
    A roof for the rain
    Tea beside the fire
    Laughter to cheer you
    Those you love near you
    And all your heart might desire.”
