Weekly Photo Challenge – Inspiration


Inspiration.

The natural beauty of MB’s homeland is always an inspiration every time he’s home to get out the camera and start clicking.

This shot is one of MBs from the New Year’s early morning mass by the frozen Lough Gur lake on 01.01.2010, which was a 10th anniversary celebration of a similar mass held to welcome the new millennium on 01.01.2000. MB attended that one also but alas did not have a camera. The priest inspires the flock on this particular morning with his sermon and all are inspired by the beauty of the surrounding nature.

Ireland Photos Of The Day 5 – Christmas Eve Midnight Mass


Patrickswell Church, HX, Limerick. 24 December 2013.

Prayers for Syria, Gaza & Sudan. And the story from the Great War (WW1) of the football match of 1915 on the Western Front between the Germans & the Allied forces. Cigarettes & wine shared, family photos shown, hymns sung. 3-2 football victory to the Germans, allegedly. And hours later the slaughter started again.
