The Summer Sunshine by the Canal

The Summer Sunshine by the Canal

It’s been a lovely summer week here in Dublin, and one of my favourite spots to enjoy the good weather int he city is by the Grand Canal between Baggot Street and Charlemont Street. Here the trees provide a nice canopy of shade and the coming and going on the banks of the canal is always interesting.

The Quiet Streets

Setting out early on a Saturday morning to shoot some street photography around the city, I was surprised at how quiet and serene it was.

The Floating Santas

This year, while taking photos of the Christmas decorations around the city, I was walking across the Ha’penny bridge and I noticed some commotion on the river. Much to my surprise a flotilla of Santa costume wearing rowers came rowing up the Liffey in kayaks belting out Christmas tunes as they went.
