Architecture Abstract Photos- Grand Canal Dock, Dublin


Link Posted 21/11/2014 - 14:17
I recently had a luxurious stay in The Marker Hotel, Grand Canal Dock in Dublin last weekend. The Grand Canal Dock has undergone major recent rejuvenation, now houses some exciting and eye-catching buildings, including The Marker Hotel and the Bord Gais Energy Theatre

Both are very striking buildings and I was drawn to the lines and patterns in both. the first four photos are of the Bord Gais Energy Theatre (left)The last three photographs are of the side of the Bord Gais Energy Theatre, an (unknown to me) office building and The Marker Hotel, which has the black and white patchwork design.

Pa where every post have a musical reference as it's title.

That's a very attractive set of architectural abstracts Patrick, an excellent addition to your abstract portfolio.

Very nice set... 1, 4 and 5 for me are the standouts, but they're all very well seen and taken... Great unexpected serated lines in no1, lovely reflected light in 4 and 5...

All well observed and laid out! The colours work and so does the mono. I like how many divide into 3 parts, or are split through the middle .. its all very creative and striking.

I do think they all need an increase in sharpening, even for viewing here on the web - the impression I get on screen is slightly soft.
