The ViewThe ViewI used the road as a datum line to build the composition around. From here you can also see the St. Francis Abbey and Smithwick's Brewery.

Our second day started with an early morning train ride to Kilkenny. The only thing I knew for sure was this was the home to the Smithwick's brewery. In fact, St. Francis Abbey which is home to the brewery was the first of many ruins we saw. Graveyards full of Celtic-crosses, centuries old churches and medieval streets all to be found here also became a recurring photographic subject. They never did get boring to try and capture.

As with all my work I try to move around quickly, see as much as possible, hope for good light and capture both what is obvious and maybe what is less obvious.
