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.

  6. 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. 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.
