I love the photography of your city. So rich in history, and the architecture is wonderful. One building appears to be smothered in Christmas lights, looks nice.
Thanks John! That’s the Temple Bar pub and yes, it’s definitely smothering in lights!
Once again stunning Conor! Many times I’ve been trying to take pictures of Merchant’s Arch with my iPhone but this picture tells me to ditch it and buy a decent camera to take pics 🙂 Your photo is just absolutely brilliant!
Would you please be able to suggest me brands of cameras and what to look out for?
Keep taking pics like you do and a happy Christmas to you and yours in advance!
Thanks Billie! I really don’t feel qualified enough at all to give advice on cameras, but I know plenty who are so if you want to give me a price range and what you’re after in general just email me (conorcullen1 at eircom.net) and I will ask for you. A very Happy Christmas to you too 🙂
Thanks Noah 🙂
Oh, you make me want to be there! Merry Christmas, Conor!
Merry Christmas Jody!
Conor that first picture really struck me – it immediately made me think of this scene from one of my favorite films, Queen of the Damned. It’s when Jessie visits the vampire pub called The Admirals Arms: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GTCt8TVeQYc – isn’t it wierd how a picture will make you think of something else?
Ha! It has that kind of atmosphere alright. I have never seen the film, but just watched the clip. Merry Christmas!
Two very cool effects there and love the sparkling lights in the 2nd image : ) Also very clear contrasts.
Thanks Matty, I appreciate that.
lovely photos, not easy taking shots at night as I found out this week. Have a lovely Christmas Connor and have a guiness for me too xx
Thanks Jan. Night photography is challenging, but really rewarding when it goes right! I’m still miles off being good at it, but the practice is fun 🙂 Merry Christmas.
Very cool Conor! I could go for a Guiness right now.
Ha! Thanks Phil! Merry Christmas.
Great as always!
Merry Christmas 🙂
I love this first photo – reminds me of my last trip to the British Isles over thirty years ago – what I remember with fondness 😉
Glad to hear it. Come back! 🙂
It’s in the works, hopefully in the next six months! Been too long ….
Really beautiful! As always!
Thanks so much LJ 🙂
Can hardly wait!!! 🙂
Ha! Stay tuned for (lots) more of Dublin 🙂
Great shots, love the vibe in the first one – very noir.
Thanks Stevie, appreciate that!
