as the summer winds down, i am catching up on my travel blogging from the past few months! this past summer we traveled to northern ireland, visiting family and taking in some sights. compared to past visits, we spent more time exploring belfast, the ards peninsula and the titanic quarter. northern ireland's infamous 12th of july parades also fell during this visit providing me with an opportunity to photograph one of the most politically charged days of the year in the region.
