Dubliners 2 - At Wolfe Tone's Feet

By mrswoolybill
I came across this little photo-shoot at the Wolfe Tone monument (aka Tonehenge) at St Stephen’s Green. Much more attractive that the statue itself, I felt - see V2 for confirmation.
If you have time, please view Large, I reckon this one is worth it.
Thanks for looking,

Good morning Moira
What a colourful shot!!
And because they are posing for the camera, you've got them all focused so well in one direction, so that you can see their faces too.
Lovely capture

How absolutely fantastic.
The colours of the costumes are so vibrant, & the faces are a happy sight to behold.
I bet you got the better pic......
I see what you mean about the statue, the children are much more interesting.

Nice statue! Which begs the question, what are a bunch of children dressed up as Russian dolls doing in Dublin in May?

Moira i find it more and more difficult to find new words to show my appreciation of what you upload, without continually saying the same things. This is first class work as always and your work gives me personally great enjoyment

Great shot Moira and lots of fun; wow that's closeup with that large flash! I agree entirely about the statue, that is one tall guy with a very small head.
15 May 2008 9:02PM
No doubt what this trio wants to represent! Great capture here Moira, colourful, cheerful and happy.

Hi Moira,
From an Irish perspective this is a really strange picture! Wolfe Tone was a late 18th century Irish patriot. These kids are dressed up as Easter Eggs. The most seminal event of the 20th century in Ireland was the challenge to the English governance of Ireland by armed rebellion that took place on Easter Monday 1916. These kids are standing in front of a statue of Wolf Tone dressed up as Easter Eggs!! It could only take place in Ireland and possibly could only have been captured by an English woman (maiden name O'Leary and of the Irish diasora)! What a shot!!!!!!
