Somewhere In Time – Dublin, Ireland.

By Posted in - Europe & Slider & Somewhere In Time on May 22nd, 2010

Somewhere In Time is a weekly photo from around the world. Enjoy!

My apologies to anyone who might have received this post or saw the tweet that went out about it, only to get an error message on the site! This accidentally was published and I pulled it back after about 30 secs but the tweet went out automatically. Anyway, here is the real, click-able post.

When I was in Europe I was amazed at how many women wore heels everywhere they went. In Dublin I saw more than I could count. I was in awe because it is hard to walk around in heels all day and it seems like the women there can walk in these shoes all day and all night without any problems.

I went to Trinity College to see the Book of Kells (which was really cool) and I looked down at the cobblestone streets that were winding around the college. This woman was wearing a pair of high heeled boots and I thought the shoes looked really cool with the cobblestones as the background. Her stance was perfect and so I snapped a photo. The lens on my camera had actually broken 3 days earlier in Scotland which is why this photo isn’t as sharp or crisp as it could be. I had to hand hold the lens to the camera body to take all of my pictures on this trip because it would no longer stay connected on it’s own. Any slight movement that moved the lens would cause me to start all over again, trying to hold the camera to my eye, keep the lens in place, focus & take the picture. It was tough.

I cried when my camera smashed to the ground & broke on my first day in Europe. But I found a way to use it and in the end, it was actually a blessing in disguise. Being forced to shoot differently started a new concept for me in terms of travel photography. In any case, I have always loved this photo because it really reminds me of my trip to Dublin, my first trip abroad with a broken camera (which is a photographer’s nightmare) and all the amazing European women that must have feet made of steel.

    Funnily enough, when I lived in New York City I wore high heels every day. And then when I moved to Dublin, I switched to flats. Maybe I’m just getting old, but every time I see the girls tottering around on their skinny stilettos on the cobblestones, I get woozy.

    I hear ya! The girls do it in NY for sure. In San Diego, it’s flip flops or bust. I always wanted to move to Dublin – it must be fun living there !
