parrot tulip and sweet potato fries

(viewed 1170 times)
cure almost anything. In case you don't know about sweet potato fries, you better run out right now and buy some sweet potatoes, chop them up, fry with olive oil until looking good and chuck some salt on. next time we'll talk about cajun sweet potato fries.

some of my London

my London (to be posted someday) also includes plants inside the glass houses at Kew Garden and an awful lot of public/street art. I stayed near Old Street and loved roaming around there.

Kilmainham Gaol, Dublin, Ireland

(viewed 1967 times)
Kilmainham is a powerful place, drenched in Irish history. The final shot is of the Victorian wing, built on the theory of the Panopticon by Jeremy Bentham. Fewer men could control greater numbers of prisoners by their ability to see in all directions. The powerful combination of sight and control, evident here, is also something which relates to photography.

Not only can one see everything in this prison palace, the acoustics are incredibly good, so guards could also hear conversations. As a result, this open part of Kilmainham is used for performances.

The prison door of Eaomon de Valera. He went on to become a president of the Irish Republic. Many others however, were executed, by the British and the Irish. Now Ireland has new kinds of troubles, better ones.
