During my visit to Galway City, Ireland I experienced a sensory explosion of beautiful, fresh, locally sourced foods. From handmade chocolates, dairy farm cheeses, olives, fresh salmon, Atlantic Ocean seaweed, artichokes, freshly baked breads, homemade jams, local meats to farm fresh vegetables, the food was a culinary feast. In fact, throughout my two week visit to Ireland, I consistently enjoyed fresh, locally sourced food that was delicious. So on your next visit to Ireland, venture out and enjoy the gourmet abundance of fresh, locally sourced foods.
Feeling the Serenity of the Winter Solstice
In the Northern Hemisphere, the Winter Solstice is the darkest day of the year preceding the gradual return of sunlight. These photographs represent to me the Winter Solstice based on their shadows and light found in serene, natural places around the world.

In 2011, I visited the West coast of Ireland for the first time. I was awestruck by the enchanting scenery of ancient stone walls, Norman castles, and miles of unspoiled landscapes. Below are canvas wrap photos of some of my favorite places.
