Photographer's Note

I post this photo inspired by recent photo by Jason from Paris. jason made us curious what he was doing in night in the Place Pigalle area? It is also a night shot but my story is much less thrilling. What a lone old woman could do there?
It was for me very busy day, like most of my travelling days. I left my hostel in Liverpool very early in the morning, it was still dark and the breakfast was not yet served. St. Mathew street, so busy in evening and night, was quite empty, and other streets as well. I went with the bus from Liverpool One to the airport and then to Dublin. It was too early to check in in the hostel but I could at least to leave some of my luggage. Equipped with Noel's instructions (thanks, Noel!!) I went first to see the northern part of the town. I saw some places from the list, added some more, and looked for the church with dead bodies and old distillery. I went through rather poor parts of the town, specially near the veg market. I found an interesting building and the church but I am not sure what they were. probably not what I was looking for. Anyway, at Four Courts I met Darek. He used to post wonderful photos here on TE but somehow lost interest in making shots. But he wanted to meet me and showed me many interesting places on the other side of the southern part of the town. We also had tea in one pub (during blue hour, Mariusz was horrified when I sent him a message). I was glad to see the atmosphere of inside of the pub, I would rather not go alone. And I was surprised they had also tea, not only Guiness! In the evening, Darek went home and I could check in. But it was to early to stay in the hostel, so I took my camera and tripod and went to make some shots in Temple Bar area. I am not sure if I used tripod here. The view of someone setting tripod near the entrance to the pub must have been funny, but it is possible that I did. Unlike in the case of Jason, I felt quite safe there. It is tourist area and it was not so late in the night. After this night session I still had to put my photos in the netbook. But this time I didn't post any photo on TE, lazy:).
Once again, I was glad that my hostel was in the very centre of the city and I could walk in the night and early morning nearby. Even if I share my dormitory with snoring guys (in one case five of them), I do not care.
