He was in the harbour in UnionHall Co. Cork Ireland. Waiting for the fisher men to feed him.. He ate out of Colins hand! Hard to believe this is a wild seal!

"Abide with me; fast falls the eventide;

the darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide.

When other helpers fail and comforts flee,

Help of the helpless, O abide with me."

 

(Henry F. Lyte, 1793-1847)

In the harbour at Unionhall, Co Cork Ireland. He was really big and waiting for the fishermen to feed him!

Union Hall is a small fishing village located in Co. Cork, Ireland, located on the west side of Glandore Harbour. Its nearest neighbour to the west is Castletownshend; to the east, Glandore Village. It is approximately 10 kilometers east of Skibbereen. The main source of employment is fishing and the pier has its own ice plant and fish processing factory run by Glenmar Shellfish Ltd.

 

Among its many tourist attractions are boat trips to view whales, dolphins and seals. Seals can be seen all year round, with dolphins and Fin Whales, Minke Whales and Humpback Whales present in summer months.

I wonder if Neutral Milk Hotel got inspiration from something like this?

Unionhall County Cork, a beautiful place

While wandering around Bodie state park I came across this old car and by accident, I fell behind this car, I mean I tripped, landing in the mud, and when I got up cursing up and down with every freaking bad word I could think of, I noticed this shot through the back of the car. So I laid down against the trunk of this car and photographed though the back window and through the front and beyond to the back of main street. If any one thinks that careful planning gets you a great shot, well they are full of ( #*+@ ) if you know what I mean. Just DUMB luck for me.

OH CRAP, I guess I'll never be a great photographer just the mud face king. P.S. look where your walking, like me if you don't you might get a great shot through miss stepping. Good luck to you all.

Nearly hidden in its own harbour, this small port of Union Hall has always had a strong seafaring tradition and now provides a safe shelter for its own active fishing fleet as well as anchorage to pleasure boats, and calm water for skiing, diving and canoeing.

 

Union Hall is a remarkably Irish village with its roots steeped in history. Archaeological remains dot the area. Castle ruins and forts can be searched out, and a Holy Well dedicated to St. Brigid remains a yearly pilgrimage made by many devotees on the first day of February.

Lest you thought I was serious in the previous post, here's a shot of a mural on the side of the Steelworkers' Union Hall in Bayard, NM.

 

I had no idea that there were steel workers, much less a union, in this little town. But there it is.

 

Labor Day is the end-of-summer-vacation holiday to celebrate organized workers in the US. Disorganized workers, as well, may celebrate.
