Dublin Redux

but first coffee

derelict-life

chairs

street art wings

love-fight

bull art

Well, we’re back in Ireland for some quality family time and this thing called a holiday (I’ve almost not checked work emails) for a few weeks. So once again I get to blow the dust that has woefully collected over the last few months off the camera and explore the streets and city.

The last few times out I’ve worked to wander the side streets and alleys; more interesting to me than the posh streets, high-end stores, and crowds of damn tourists that plague cities in the summer! I love seeing the book-store striving to cling to life next to its derelict counterpart, or the old and clearly well loved chairs outside the more recently created Blacksheep Pub. I was pleasantly surprised to see a burgeoning craft-beer scene and some amazing food ( L. Mulligan’s Grocer, Oxmantown plus others) here too, but that’s another story.

Next up on the list Belfast and Edinburgh…
