What’s Going On In This Photo?

liam says…

While I’m writing up my next post, I thought I’d post this “teaser” pic. Any ideas of what is happening in this photo?

I’ll tell you this; it was in Kilkenny, it was in a very public place and the photo was not staged.

  2. He got to meet Daniel Day-Lewis? (via Facebook)

  3. someone was axing him a question?? (via Facebook)

  4. Irish version of the grim reaper? (via Facebook)

  5. Clearly, he was slicing a loaf of Irish soda bread.

  6. Maybe he is new to the area and needs to axe for directions

  7. Let’s see…Kilkenny. Was he going to pick up a witch at Kyteler’s Inn? Or was he protesting the prices Tesco pays farmers for livestock? Maybe he was protesting that his job was on the chopping block?

  8. Looks like someone bought an ax at a boot sale…

  9. Jeff – Correct! You’ve clearly been to a Boot Sale (Irish-style Flea Market) before. There’s no telling what you might find. I think it’s the combination of the suit, pocket watch and axe that makes the photo so interesting.
