Photographer's Note

There is a slight possibility that I will move out of Ireland. Keeping that in mind I was motivated twice this week to go for a blue hour walk with my camera. You have already seen a photo from the first shooting, the main subject of which was Christ Church Cathedral. Last night I decided to take a blue hour photo of so called Garden of Remembrance which is located in the very centre of Dublin yet quite often missed by tourists and never showed on TE. I had already tested a good POV before. Sadly the park was closed much before the dusk. This is the case with all parks in Dublin which I completely forgot. In the last minute I decided to drive to the riverside hoping that I can spot a good POV...

River Liffey, meaning life in Irish, visible in this photo, runs through Dublin city centre. In this picture you may spot three interesting structures. The highest building with the rather simple architecture, called formally Liberty Hall (1965, 59.4m/195ft) houses the headquarters of SIPTU, Ireland’s largest trade union. One may speculate that having one of the highest buildings in Ireland they may be very influential, ...or just the opposite, by the size of the headquarters they try to compensate for something. Huge spire with the beam of light on the very top is officially called the Monument of Light or simply the Spire. It is 121.2 metres (398 ft) high and it marks the middle of O’Connell Street, one of the main streets in Dublin City Centre. To see both Liberty Hall and the Spire from another POV CLICK HERE. The elegant brownish building with the green dome is the Custom House. To read more about it and to see it in the daylight CLICK HERE.
