So, with city centre cabin fever setting in, Laura and I travelled the very short distance to one of Dublin’s gems, Bull Island, yesterday, Good Friday.
It was very cold, as it has been lately, with a biting wind, but the sun was shining and the fresh, sea air was heaven-sent.
Afterwards, we stopped in across the road (almost literally) to the beautiful and somewhat underrated St Anne’s Park for a short while.
The photos aren’t great, but it was nice to get the camera back in my hands again, it has been all-too-rare lately.
But, we get an extra hour this weekend and – even though it doesn’t feel like it in this unseasonably cold weather – summer is coming.
I feel a photo-revival coming on!
These two pieces of street art are located less than 100 yards from each other on North Anne Street in Dublin.
The first is really striking and, in my opinion, a really impressive and effective piece.
It makes me smile.
So I haven’t been getting out much with the camera lately unless I manage to clear out of Dodge completely for a few days, as I have been very busy, especially in work.
One of the main reasons for this has been due to managing a project to redevelop Alcohol Action Ireland’s website and to develop a new website, DrinkHelp.ie, as well as establishing a social media presence for both sites.
It’s been a very interesting project and it it at all went “live” earlier today, which is great! The usual teething problems need to be sorted, but they will be. I hope people find the new sites useful and engaging.
As many of you kindly helped me out back at the planning stages by filling in a survey I put up here, I said I would let you see how it all turned out, but I am keeping this post brief as the sites should speak for themselves – if they don’t I’m in trouble!
Feedback, as ever, is welcome! Oh and normal photographic programming will resume shortly!
So, I’ll level with you here.
if I hadn’t been so busy lately these photos wouldn’t be up here.
Getting some quality time with my camera has been increasingly difficult, but I’ll be addressing that next weekend – in some style I hope!
Until then, dear reader, please look kindly on this mixed bag of photos from recent weeks, most of which were taken on a stroll around Dublin, which took in St Stephen’s Green and the Iveagh Gardens.
Others were just random snaps when something caught my eye when the camera was close by.
I’ll try caption them, as best I can.
