Throwback Thursday: Ireland Revisited

I decided to delve back into a few photos from one of the most pivotal trips of my life. That 9-day vacation on the Emerald Isle sparked some major life changes for me, and is the entire reason I am back across the pond today.

Besides the romance side of things, it also engaged me to a new hobby. The day before leaving for Dublin, I took my paycheck to B&H in New York and bought my first "real" (sort of) camera. I had no idea what I was doing, and mostly used it on 'auto mode' for the entire trip. Looking back, it's so interesting to see what I chose to photograph those first few times I used it; what angles I chose, what subjects, and my miserably failed first attempts at adjusting exposure. It also surprises me that some of the photos I'm drawn to are the ones I originally didn't like. My tastes have changed, I've tried to learn more, and I'm going to continue to do so.

What a difference a year can make.
