Where does one begin? To capture the essence of the human soul must be every artist or photographer’s dream. That precise moment when the twinkle in the eye is at its loveliest… or liveliest? Thirdeyemom sets this week’s tone… humanity. I dithered this way and that, using every excuse in the book not to want to take on the challenge. I’ve never really traveled that far and when we were still in Africa or flitting over to the continent for the odd holiday we never owned cameras.
However, I’ve worked in the most cosmopolitan and divers workplaces while here in Ireland, so I don’t have to go far to capture that diversity. Therefore, as Third Eye Mom suggests, why not use photos to represent how the diversity makes up what we understand to be humanity… and that all without leaving the greater Dublin area!
OK… one quick admission… I love shooting random street shots… holding the camera at chest height and hitting the shutter release as I go. Many of these pics are the result of this sneaky pastime of mine. I’ve had hours of fun preparing this gallery… I have so many photos I could maybe put a few more together!
