The harbor at Killybegs

Indulge me, if you will, a brief return to the visit to Ireland my wife and I made last year.

I follow the film-photography blog of Roy Karlsvik, who makes his living as a sailor. He shares photographs of what are to him everyday places, most of which involve harbors and ships. But it’s all pretty exotic to me, a fellow living amid the cornfields in the middle of the vast United States.

But his next itinerary includes a stop at Killybegs, Ireland, a place where Margaret and I stopped for dinner one evening last September. The harbor was right behind our restaurant, so we walked out for a few late-dusk photographs. I like them, and I even shared one before, but this gives me an excuse to share more.

It’s cool to me that Roy’s world and mine overlapped this tiny bit.

    Nice photos Jim looks a nice place, the weather looks calm judging by the stillness of the sea, I hope the meal you had was good. I think it’s cool that the place is mentioned in another blog/fellow blogger you follow.

    Have only red a bit, starting with some camera review, then linking to a story about marriage’s dissolution. Interesting reading, will get back for more.

      My little secret here is that I write about whatever I want. I just wrap it all in the cloak of photography.

    Thanks a lot, Jim, for throwing this one in as an extra for all of us :)
    I’m going to work on Wednesday, and should be in Killybegs in about a month from now. Of course we can never be 100% sure that’s what’s going to actually happen, as this business is known to change it’s mind more or less over night sometimes, but it’s still the plan from what I’ve heard.
    I will post a few pictures and words from the place, of course!
