I fell in love with this shot the moment I saw it importing into iPhoto. I’m not even sure it’s technically a good photo, but I just love it.

I took this shot from St. Mary’s Square on the grounds of St. Patrick’s College (AKA the NUI Maynooth South Campus). For those of you who’ve visited the campus, that’s the square with the cool water garden in it next to the College chapel. I’ve always loved the architecture of the buildings around this square, and in particular these little sun-roofs. You have these little sunroofs on both St. Mary’s and St. Patrick’s House, but these ones are on St. Patrick’s House. It was quite hard to get this shot without getting a wet foot, but I eventually managed to line everything up correctly and get the shot, even if I was at quite a stretch.
