Castles in Ireland …

Blarney Castle 1_Adj 2_Tex 3 _ RTP_ 24 Nov 13 SFW

The above image is one I made with my Hasselblad on T-Max 400 B&W film.  Then I scanned the negative and worked it up in Photoshop.  I  think I posted a straight scan of this image in an earlier post several years ago.  I am going back and trying to do a some new things after looking at some other photographer’s work recently.  The castle above is the Blarney Castle and yes, I did kiss the Blarney Stone, but I had  ” the gift of gab ” thirty or forty years ago.   Maybe it helped, maybe it didn’t, however, I did not fly across the Atlantic to pass up the opportunity to kiss the Blarney Stone.  I cannot identify the castle below.  We were driving down the road and saw it and pulled in.  I would guess that it is six or seven hundred years old….
