On an assignment earlier this week i had to photograph a set of curtains for an upcoming historical book. I thought nothing of it arranged the shoot for monday morning and took my self out to Newbridge house in Donabate North county Dublin.I have been there several times as there is a nice park, farm, and playground, and of course the house. I was struck by the 150 year old curtains and all of their grandeur but when examined closer there wasone interesting fault.
The curtains appeared to be rotting in situ and the edges near the ground where missing.
Just like our country I thought!
From a safe distance all looks in tact but up close things are most definatly falling appart on a person to person bassis.Yes Although it would appear to our European partners that Ireland has taken steps to avoid the financial mayhem of an I.M.F./E.U. bale out, things will never be the same for countless thousands of peopleWho will never have the money to pay of their over inflated debts let alone afford to change the curtains!
