We stayed in Ashford Castle in Cong, Ireland. It was a birthday present. Very posh.
I was in the sitting room waiting to check out and I noticed this woman reading the paper. The scene struck me. It seemed like something from another era.
I did my best to be discreet as I raised and focused the Leica. Not sure if she saw me. (Later, reviewing the image, I noticed that the back page headline on the paper she was reading was “Being Screwed by the Elite”.)
