Hi, Green Irish Eagle. It was a real gift to see both the tree and the pylon making a near 90° angle with the street. Thanks to luck, the car added a very common visual reference, enhancing the effect.

We had a nice afternoon walking around Howth, from the lighthouse back to the car park through the cliffs and the marina. Of course, we had a stop to drink a Guiness at the pub facing the harbour.

Very funny shot, and well spotted indeed! I had to look twice at this one before I got it :)

Cheers, Justin

Thank you, Justin (aka jhk). This is an idea I had years ago but this is the very first time I find the visual elements all together just as if a movie crew was at my orders. And I am very glad the picture is not spectacular; it looks natural, which makes it weird for some background of the brain, not immediately visible.

My Great Grandfather JOHN ANGUS about 1829-1912 built number 1 Hillside Terrace,(now Thornmanby Road) the cottage in the photography,

I wonder who lives there now, and 2 great aunts of mine lived at number (up to the left of my G.Granddads cottage) 4, Hillside terrace,Howth and ran a little tea room there.

John Angus also built the little church on up the hill, (Now Closed) Please contact me with any information.Thanks

Hi mcmenamin! No, I don't. You know, I've been in Dublin for a week, no more. And only a couple of hours in Howth. Best regards and happy new year. tidjj
