Koudelka on Ireland

On occasion it is nice to simply post images that I happen to like. Here is one from Czeck photographer Josef Koudelka. I generally like his work I recall reading an interview with him (itself relatively rare since he seems averse to talking about his work) that he has more or less stopped developing images and is simply taking pictures and "saving" them to develop later. I admit that that seems quite odd to me. Having said that I do like this shot even though it may seem something of an anti-Irish slander!
