I Heart... the Crosses of Ireland

From the archives... St. Patrick's Day got me to feeling just a wee bit nostalgic about Ireland. I'm headed there again this summer, so I thought it was time to pull out my travel journal from my first trip.  

The story began here and it will continue on Monday.   Erin Go Braugh!
When I travel, I tend to choose a theme for my travel photos.  This allows me to concentrate on one particular idea when I am surrounded by new and exciting things to photograph.  Usually the theme just suggests itself in the first few days of a trip, and on my first trip to Ireland, the Crosses of Ireland were an obvious choice.  Here are a few of my favorites.

They're gorgeous, Angela! They've always appealed to me as well, but I've never seen them in person. Maybe one day!

I've always liked their crosses the best--a mix between the local culture and the foreign.

Love these old stone crosses. Reminds me of the great history of the region.

Such variety! And I agree, I really like the B&W ones, too.

Beautiful pictures. I have one from the Aran Islands that I would like you to see. Hmmmm...see if I can figure out the Twitter photo thingy.

I especially like the backlit crosses...evokes a whole different feeling than seeing the weather-worn crosses in the sunlight.
