Old and new Dublin and my attempts to photoshop them together

 

This post is pretty much what it says on the title. Spurred on by some of the great Google Streetview challenge posts on Broadsheet I gave it a shot, please be kind. I’ve included the pics and screengrabs I used for comparison.

The first image is Dorset Street and features the former home of playwright Richard Brinsley Sheridan which is now pretty much in ruins. The second image is City Hall. I used old images I found on the Dublin.ie forum and features some great old pics of Dublin. I have a feeling I may come back to this, photoshop skills permitting.

Basilica Cistern, Instanbul

One thing to definitely do in Instanbul is the Basilica Cistern. It is one of many things that you must do in Instanbul; I previously posted about the Blue Mosque which is another must-see and I hope to have a post out of another amazing place the Topkapi Palace which I’ll post soon. I threw in a phone pic to into the mix of this post as using the phone at one stage became far too easy, especially in the heat when carrying heavy lens was hard going. In saying that I did carry everything until my everyday lens took a knock and pretty much curtailed the pics I’d like to have taken. There’s a story in that, but thats for another day.

Blue Mosque, Instanbul

During my trip to Turkey we spent a few great days in Instabul. Unfortunately I had a lens incident and my snapping was cut short, well aside from what I took on my phone (some of the pics you can see on Instagram from this link) which I’ll post them over the next while. For now here are some images from the Blue Mosque.
