Killarney Sweet Shop

I live in America's Amish country. The old order has largely stopped its technological clock somewhere in the middle of the 19th century. The towns of Ireland, I've found, have stopped their urban  street clocks somewhere in the late 1930s or pre-war 40s. So much seems as familiar as nostalgia. Here on Killarney's Market street's a powerful example... Look at the candies in the crystal jars. Can you read the flavors? These are the penny-sticks lurking almost beyond memory of most of us today. Killarney, like most of Ireland's small cities, is a well-crafted memory.

Canon 7D, EF-S17-85mm, ISO 300,  Double image pano in PS4 for dynamic range adjustments. Custom brushes/textures. AlienSkin: SnapAr3 Custom Textured oil for shadow texture/vignetting, tExposure 5,Agafachrome to capture rich European 50s color depth.
