I take pictures pretty much all year in and around Dublin, and I love watching how the cycle of the seasons plays out across the stage of the city streets. Over this last year, as I sorted through my library, I realise just how interesting it is to look back, as winter becomes spring, spring becomes summer and so on.
Beginning in winter as the trees lie dormant and bare, the streets are quiet in the aftermath of christmas. As we go through the days and weeks, the colours and light change, as the parks become green and as the life of the city beats in time with natures clock.
Spring brings the beautiful pink of the cherry blossoms in Stephen's green, and the greens of the decorations for St. Patricks day. Summer sees lots of tourists as the trees and flowers around the city are in full bloom.
Autumn brings golden browns of fallen leaves and people starting to wear their warmer coats and scarves, and finally a return to the cool blues of winter as people prepare for christmas and the trees are once again bare.
And then the circle begins again.
