Some photos speak for themselves, others can use a little explaining. Though I took this shot almost 40 years ago, seeing it brought back some vivid memories: For starters, our meal at "Chez Hans," housed in a former church in County Tipperary in the south of Ireland, was delicious.

Despite its Franco-German sounding name — and never mind the Swiss, American and German flags! — I remember feasting on traditional Irish delicacies. But rediscovering this slide in my archives brought back my recollection of that little boy in the foreground, staring directly at my camera: He was a spooky little lad!
