Capturing the moment!
In second place, we have chosen a photograph which is the essence of great photography. As the renowned photographer, Henri Cartier-Bresson said – “To me, photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event.” The photograph, Martina Querini took here demonstrates this so well. While it is true that we can get some rain and wind in the summer months, it is also true that it is part of the real Irish experience. The girl here in the photograph is battling with the elements, but as you can see from her face, she is able to see the funny side of it. It sums up the Irish summer experience – it may rain, it may be windy, your umbrella may break, but you will have a fantastic, fun time in Cork. Nothing beats it. Thanks to Martina for capturing this moment so well.
