Mexican Sailing Ship Docks in the Liffey.
This was my second encounter with Cuauatemoc.
No, no, not the legendary Aztec Emperor! He’s been gone for centuries. (Although back in ’79 I explored a pyramid near Mexico City. . . .)
Im’ referring to the majestic Mexican sailing ship that bears his name, which has docked in the River Liffey at Dublin’s Sir John Rogerson’s Quay.
Yesterday I met fellow photographer Mark Healy for a photographic journey in the Dublin Docklands. This tall ship was our focus.
Seven years ago I photographed the ship on a previous visit.
When we arrived the Irish President, Michael D. Higgins was on deck, speechifying (in Irish, I think?). The sailors stood a attention.
It was as close I’ve had to a political encounter in a fair while.
