The Spanish Arch 9, Ireland 2012

Karin Ott

This phone hung on the wall by the bar in The Spanish Arch in Galway. I don’t know if it still works. In any case I dragged my kids out of their seats to show them what a telephone looked like when I was a kid. And they didn’t even appricaite it!


Christmas 11, 2012

This shot is from the Lucia celebration at my children’s school. On the 13’th they walk around with candles singing songs to the Italian saint Santa Lucia. For some reason she is very popular as part of the Christmas celebration on Scandinavia. Perhaps because she is associated with light at the darkest time of the year.
