On this day in 1998, Vincent van Gogh's "Portrait of the Artist Without Beard" sold at auction for more than $71 million.

Daybreak near Delvin

Taken on an early morning trip to Dundalk. At dawn, the country is starting to wake up to another wet and miserable day. This particular shop and petrol station grabbed my attention, not least for it's isolated location, it shone like a beacon in the middle of nowhere.
