A few shots from a wander along the quays
heavy pp on a couple due to repair works

Always nice when you get an epic shot

Good set of images

If I had to give one word to describe the opening image it would be ... epic

Some nice shots and you seem to have avoided the crowds. Having lived in Dublin for nearly 40 years (before moving to Donegal two years ago) I can attest to the vast changes that there has been to the city in recent years.

The first Guinness one is really nice with the cobbles making a nice abstract. The crisper one is simply that - a crisp image. The Dublin dart makes a well balanced, eye catching image too but I have to confess to not figuring out what the dart might be?
Both the *istDS and the K5 are incurably addicted to old glass

The image shows a Dublin Area Rapid Transit (DART) train on the Loopline Bridge crossing the Liffey

Great set of shots.

Love the monochrome of Samuel Beckett Bridge. A friend of mine owns and runs The Ferryman pub almost directly behind you when you were taking that shot.

It's fair old walk from there to Guinness's.

Samuel Beckett Bridge and the first Guinness stand out for me.

Pity there wasn't a toucan walking across the cobbles when you took the Guiness shot... or did it go during pp?

Cheers Guys, Thanks SteveF for answering the Dart question,
That pub always looks busy, but I have never been inside it. I think Bill knows it as well as it is just around the corner from the theatre.
I was disappointed that there were so many repair works going on but hopefully in the future it will mean that they are shootable.
And yep it is a bit of a walk from Guinness gate to the Samuel Beckett

Lovely series, Derek, I particularly like the Dart, with the train's fluid movement contrasting with the bridge's jagged lines. The subtle morphing of greens to yellows in the train adds to the mystery of it all.
