A tourist writes:

Sometimes doing what you love comes at a price: here {above) is the Samuel Beckett bridge in Dublin, Ireland. On Monday night around midnight I walked one block away from my hotel to take some long exposures- right after I shot this very frame, I looked up & saw 5 or 6 teenage dudes (16 to 18 year olds?) in hoodies & track pants spreading out around me.

“Well, crap, I guess it’s on” I thought. I started stepping quickly into the street…

[Later, having got biffed on the head]

….I’M FINE. I’ve been in some of the sketchiest neighborhoods on earth & escaped unharmed, but last night I got distracted & forgot my street smarts for a couple of minutes. That was very, VERY stupid of me, & I paid the price. So lesson learned here is STAY ALERT, y’all. And Dublin- I still love you, I’m NOT afraid to come here, it’s a lovely city, BUT… please neuter & spay your feral children, because next time they might club someone whose head isn’t as hard as mine & kill them.

Randy Blythe, of American groove metal band Lamb of God
