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.

Grand Canal Dock, From the Other Side

I was walking in the Grand Canal dock area the other day and I noticed that the area around the theatre and the Marker Hotel looked really impressive when seen from across the water. I wouldn't normally be over this side, so it was good to see it from a different vantage for a change. Also, the buildings looked great in the fleeting moments of sunshine between the clouds.
