Hotel Spanish Arch

This street scene was inspired by a photo taken by my old friend Mac McDonnell. Mac is a fine photographer and he toured the world as a road manager and audio engineer, The Hotel Spanish Arch in Galway Ireland is shown here at Christmas time with a parade of shoppers mostly walking away from the viewer, Not in the scene is the actual Spanish Arch which was built sometime in the late 1500s. You may notice that there are no cars in this scene. This street is a pedestrian only zone and that makes the scene even more intriguing for me.
