Werburgh Street Church, a set on Flickr.

Just a very quick post to let you know about some new photos I have recently posted on my Flickr page. The photos were taken in Werburgh Street Church here in Dublin City during the summer of 2013. They are not part of my Phoenix Park project but I think it’s ok to break the rules from time to time. [I suppose I can break the rules anytime I want, it’s my blog]

Sunlit Trees

Through the trees near the furry glen

This is actually a fairly old photograph, possibly about seven years ago, that I recently printed up again when I was doing a darkroom printing course. I had printed the photograph years ago but never really liked the results I was getting. I decided to bring it with me to the course and see if I could improve it in any way. Sometimes you just get a photograph that won’t print as I saw it on the day through the lens of the camera. It can happen and it’s always best to leave it for a while and then go back, having said that, seven years is probably a bit too long to wait.
The photograph was taken using Kodak Tri-x 120mm film [400 iso] using a Bronica medium format camera.

Dublin Flea / Block T Christmas Cracker.

Dublin Flea & BLOCK T Christmas Cracker Market 2013
Dublin Flea & BLOCK T are bringing back the Dublin Christmas Cracker Market this
December. It will be once again Dublin’s biggest Christmas Market with 110 stalls spread over two rooms in Block B, Smithfield. There will be all the usual bric-a-brac, clothes, furniture and trinkets you would find at the monthly Dublin Flea Markets with an injection of Christmas cheer in the form of affordable arts, crafts and design. As always the main focus is on small, local, Irish businesses and individuals who are doing great things in Ireland. This will be the most interesting and enjoyable place to shop for Christmas without going near the highstreet.
With more space than you can swing a cat at, there is plenty of room to soak up the
atmosphere, shop, haggle, bargain hunt, chat, meet old friends, have lunch, chill out and have a coffee.
The Market is open over three days from December 13th -15th
Friday 13th opening time is 12-7pm
Saturday and Sunday 14th & 15th opening times are 11- 6pm
Dublin Flea and BLOCK T Christmas Cracker Market is about supporting local artists, producers and small businesses and giving Dublin a truly amazing Christmas Market in a wonderful, underutilised space in the city.
Block B is located off Haymarket, Smithfield Square, D7.

Tall Trees Near Knockmaroon Gate

Tall trees near Knockmaroon Gate with couple

This photo was taken close to the Knockmaroon gates on the way down towards The Furry Glen.

The photo was taken on a lovely Autumn morning using a high contrast red filter on the camera to give the sky that lovely dramatic black effect. The photo was taken on Kodak tri-x 120mm film using a Bronica medium format camera. The print was then made in a traditional darkroom on Kentmere paper. The two people in the photo were a pure accident, but I kind of love the scale they add to the trees, I have a version without the people in the shot and you don’t really get a sense of how tall the trees are without them in it.

Enjoy
