Two Gentlemen of Aran by Louise Fahy

Please view large.

Two men who work with horse traps caught my eye, or rather my ear, when they started a conversation in Gaelic together while waiting for tourists to arrive. Many of these local men make a living by taking tourists around the islands in their horse traps. This photo was taken on Inish Mor, the largest of the three the Aran Islands off Galway City in Ireland.

Two images merged with Gimp, texture added to give it a more antiquated feeling. Photographed with a Sony DSLR in September 2009.

    Beautiful work Louise. I can only imagine how wonderful it must have been to hear their conversation in Gaelic. Your texture work is awesome.

  • It was really fantastic, magical place although I think it has changed a great deal in the past 30 years. Amazing to see the old aspects of the culture hanging on!

    Beautiful shot Louise. The antique texture is amazing, it looks like the photo was taken 100 years ago :-)

  • Thanks Caroline! I wanted it to look like an old painting. It was quite fun to work on, although learning how to work with textures and get the right effect takes a while!!
