Irish Boys

Killeagh, County Cork, Ireland

This is my favorite of all the pictures I have taken over the years. They were diagonally across the street from me and I happened to have my camera (Canon film SLR) with a long zoom lens on it). I surreptitiously snapped the picture and they were gone an instant later. This copy was made with an Olympus DSLR.

Canon SLR film

This image is full of character.
The many facets of "boys will be boys" is shining wall to wall here.
Every detail has its importance, even the big drops splashing on the ground
and coming out of the fountain.
A wonderful page in their life.
C'est génial.

The hair color gives them away. Nice group shot. I think the fisherman will have a tough time catching anything there. V

It's a great shot from simpler times - nowadays they'd head to the shop for Coke Cola

I can see why you like this photo so much. It has a wonderful vintage mood to it. There's so much going on in this shot. Amazing capture! (Miriam)
