On Monday we left Dublin and made it to Waterford. We stayed overnight at a small dairy farm in Waterford and woke up early to see the farm in action. Sophia was happily put to work.
After a big Irish breakfast we bumped along the back roads and took our time along a beautiful drive to Cork. I shot 4 or 5 rolls just along that drive alone.
The weather here is quite remarkable. Within 30 minutes you can find yourself in the middle of massive rain to be followed by clouds and then a bright sun. And then it happens all over again a few hours later.
We left wine country and drove about 3 hours north yesterday.
The north coast couldn’t be any more different than the Basque. While the former was dry and warm, the north is green with a cool evening breeze. The food is quite different as well. Both are wonderfully special in their own way.
I have taken about 4 rolls of film with my Hasselblad so far. It’s so nice to shoot mostly with film on vacation. Just find (or feel the exposure), compose your frame and make the photograph. No post processing, just a bunch of rolls waiting to be sent off to the lab. I am loving this Hasselblad more and more.
(In the meantime here are a few photographs taken with my digital Leica M)
