2014 Culture Night, Dublin.

September 19, 2014.

Mt_Joy_Square_number3_P1070656

Culture Night is an annual event when a multitude of buildings are opened to the public free of charge. My friends and I make this a pilgrimage around Dublin. Every year we take a different route and try to see into worlds locked away most of the year. Or at least get a peak at museum or two for free!

We visited about a half dozen different venues on the North Side, and stuck our heads into several more.

This year was unlucky as it poured rain for much of the evening. Actually, the rain made for some more atmospheric photos.

All of these photos were exposed with my Lumix LX7 over a four-hour period.

Between October 4th and 6th, the Irish Architecture Foundation organized a event focused on the Dublin City Centre where dozens of buildings were open for public viewing. Below are a selection of images I made while visiting some of Dublin’s most interesting structures

St Patrick’s Day Dublin.

17 March 2013

Baltic conditions prevailed over the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Dublin; yet it was, perhaps, the best Paddy’s Day parade I’ve photographed in 15 years. I was numb by the time I sought warmer venues. Here’s sampling of  photos. I ran out of pixels before the day was done!

Dublin is a tapestry of architecture woven by its long and complex history.

Home to writers, wits, and sometimes itinerant (or at least wandering) photographers, Dublin has been a subject of my lens for more than 15 years.

Displayed here are just a few of my most recent Dublin images. More to come soon!
