If there’s one thing I love about the stretch of sunshine when it comes to photography, its the way it brings out the colour around us. Dublin may feel like a dull and grey place sometimes, but its actually pretty colourful. You just don’t notice it as much when the rain and grey clouds turn the saturation down. But with a little sunshine, take a stroll and open your eyes and you can find colour everywhere.
I have always had weird tastes when it comes to photography. I like abstract shapes and colours, and I like interesting objects and textures too. As someone who has worked in design, I appreciate such things. I also like abstract ideas and I’ll take an image if its appeal is even just that it has a weird shape or a nice texture. That’s the thing about beauty though. It really is in the eye of the beholder, and it can be everywhere and in anything (well, maybe not anything) if you just look at it right.
So on a sunny day in the middle of the heatwave, I set out to explore the colours of everyday objects in Dublin city. A colour safari if you will. Here is a selection. Enjoy.
