Dublin + 1

This is a selection of photographs I’ve taken over the last couple of years. I put them on Fine Art America, and decided to compile them into this free PDF, while I try to figure out the future of this blog. The +1 is a photo I took in at Lough Key, in the north west of Ireland a few years ago, while visiting family. Enjoy.

Portobello Rickshaw

This caught my eye one night. Rickshaws had been a familiar sight in Dublin for a long time so I don’t know what it was that struck me about this.

Looking at the photo now, it seems odd that in what is called a developed country people should have to do this to earn a living.

Friday Foto

It seems appropriate for the times.

On another note, I recently saw an ad for an anti-facemask rally here in Dublin. The organisers are so committed to getting others to join their cause, they recommend people wear a face mask and socially distance if that would make them more comfortable!

Food Bank

All dressed up to be torn down!

This is the former community centre where I used to work. Apart from the food bank, which changed radically at the start of the pandemic, most of the activities had to stop.

We had to move out a few weeks ago. The new place is not half as good, but a few of the other things have started up again.

Disappearing Dublin

I had no idea what this building was when I took the photo. I saw them from upstairs on a bus and liked the look of them, so I got off the bus and went back to take this shot. I put the photo into an exhibition, and it was there one day someone told me they used to be a stable.

A few months later this and some other buildings in the area were torn down to make way for apartments.
