Fantastic photo Conor x
Thanks Karen! Hope all is well with you and the family.
My daughter was in Dublin for 6months, I came to visit love dublin did it sober!!!
It’s better sober. Love the animal art by the way 🙂
Hi Conor, the first is surreal with the light on it, like something from a different dimension………its so difficult to photograph but this shot says it all.
Thanks so much, John. The fading light was lovely that evening.
Looks like a needle. I can almost see the eye for threading it at the base!
It really does. It’s growing on me!
Your Spire is Magnificent compared to the one in my city: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spire_(Atlanta)
Tied for 21st tallest building in the city though, that’s not bad 🙂
wow what an epic looking spire, very surreal. great pix
Those buildings make me dream. Great pics.
Thanks very much. Can’t ask for a better response than that.
Conor, your pics are class and your new camera is an extension of your mind, making the world a much more beautiful place for us all to see. PS – I’m in love with that link to the other voices with Joseph O’Connor, WOW!
Thanks a million Brendan, I really appreciate that. Ya, that video is great, if you get a chance you should look up the whole show on the RTE Player, lots of readings and great songs, I think you’d really enjoy it.
There’s a million reasons why I love this. Anything monumentally architecture-related gets my juices flowing. Also, symmetry and one-point perspective is so visually delicious. Speaking of, right before I saw this post I just finished watching a montage of Kubrick scenes shot in one-point perspective, which has totally inspired me. Hope it does you, too: http://vimeo.com/48425421
That is great! Thanks a million. Had never noticed that about Kubrick’s work.
Watch out Father Christmas! Great angles in these..
Thank you very much. Don’t be afraid to sit down in busy streets is what I learned from this!
