For Rob

Last September, I had the opportunity to photograph at Sandymount Strand, where two episodes of Joyce’s Ulysses takes place. It was a thrill, for sure.

“The summer evening had begun to fold the world in its mysterious embrace. Far away in the west the sun was setting and the last glow of all too fleeting day lingered lovingly on sea and strand, on the proud promontory of dear old Howth guarding as ever the waters of the bay, on the weedgrown rocks along Sandymount shore and, last but not least, on the quiet church whence there streamed forth at times upon the stillness the voice of prayer to her who is in her pure radiance a beacon ever to the stormtossed heart of man, Mary, star of the sea…” (from Ulysses, Episode 13, Nausicäa).
