Hug a lamp post today

Dublin city has so many different types of lamp posts and lights, both new and historical, and they are a feature on many of Dublin's streets. One estimate puts  the number of lampposts in the city at 32,000. Today, the Dublin lamp post has become nearly as iconic as the Georgian Dublin door. 

Concrete, Steel & Glass

I’ve always been quite fond of textures and patterns. I find that, even in the seemingly harsh and cold medium of concrete and glass there can be beauty. I spent a few hours the other day in the Docklands, one of the newest parts of Dublin City, where there are lots of modern buildings as well as ongoing construction, and the light was just right to really emphasis the aesthetics of these elements.

Architectural Lines, Patterns & Textures

I love images of patterns and textures, which I guess comes from years working in design and animation. However, I do love how some modern (or relatively modern) architecture can make some really interesting graphic shapes when taken in the right light and from the right angle. Dublin's Trinity College has some great buildings for taking these kinds of shots.
