Little Black & Red Riding Hood
Everybody knows the story of Little Red Riding Hood, a European fairytale (immortalised by the Grimm brothers) about a little girl walking in the wood to visit her granny. She encounters the big bad wolf and the fiasco begins.
Few, however, know she was riding on her bicycle. Hence, the "riding" in her name...
I took this fairytalish picture on 16 July 2012 on a lashing Dublin summer morning. The location is where N11 (Leeson Street) meets the Grand Canal.
