THE QUAYS – Westport, County Mayo, Ireland

This photo was taken in 2005 with a Kodak Advantix 35 mm camera.  It shows the buildings on The Quays in Westport, County Mayo, Ireland.  I used this funny little camera for a few years in addition to a SONY digital, though I still used the Canon AE-1 off and on also.  The Advantix was an interesting camera because you could print in three ways…regular 4 x 6 print, larger 4 x 7 print, or a long panoramic print.

This shows The Quays with Clew Bay and the Atlantic Ocean behind me.  The last building on the left is Cinnamon Wharf, which used to be a warehouse but is now luxury apartments.  Westport House is off to the left behind the trees.  Notice the looming black clouds in the upper right of the photo.  In Mayo, it rains a lot.  It’s like the NW of the US.  By the time I got back to Cinnamon Wharf and took the next photo, the storm had come and gone.  You can see the remnants of the water on the ground and the air is crystal clear.  It shows The Quays looking toward Clew Bay and the Atlantic from Cinnamon Wharf.
