Black and White

This weekend has been pretty laid back. A friend is back in Dublin to submit her thesis so we have been playing with contents tables and generally relaxing now that the she has handed it in. Today we went back to the Queen of Tarts to sample some savoury dishes and the quality was just as good as before. I’d definately recommend the spinach, brie and pine-nut tart!

In between the copious cups of coffee and the episodes of Scrubs, I have managed to tidy up the buttons on my blog for submissions to facebook, stumbleupon etc… Also, thanks to the advice of the friendly peeps on Twitter, I have managed to add a feed to my blog – before today I didn’t even really have a clue what a “feed” was!

Because we have been relaxing, I haven’t really taken many photos recently so I thought I would upload a couple of processed photos – black and white photos, the first which I have increased the contrast to make quite dramatic.

Street Life

One of my key aims for last weekend was to get some shots of general “street life” around Dublin. I think I’m ok generally with inanimate objects but people are a different matter – well, specifically, general shots of everyday life rather than staged portraits.

I had a few opportunities when we took a wander through Temple Bar last week. I know I have a long way to go but I’m sort of pleased with this first set of pictures. I particularly like the set up of the last one. The colours were just perfect and the I really liked the way that the mannequin was staring into the street. All I needed was for someone to walk by, but seeing as Rachel was all decked out in similar colours, I asked her to walk by! Let me know what you think.

The Green Door

Hmmmm, I seem to have a bit of a thing for doors at the moment! But this one was so much fun…what with the grafitti to turn it into “Tesco”, the contrast of the yellow peppers, and the fact that a couple of peppers had rolled away slightly.
