I met a very interesting man today. We were chatting when Michael asked me where I was from, when I told him I was born in Clonakilty Co Cork his eyes lit up and he invited me to few his photo gallery. Pride of place is given to Michael Collins and beside him is a picture of Michael Collins's sister Kitty. Michael had a connection to Kitty Collins and was full of stories, we spent about an hour, Michael talking, and me listening. I always find it fascinating to listen to people who have connections to historic events, the stories, wether true or not, always seem more authentic. And I was convinced today ! Michael agreed for me to take his picture and share it with you.
For those interested in the technical details, I decided to not use flash, I switched off the lights in the room and relied on the light coming through an open door to light the scene. iso800 f4.5 1/80seconds.
