I’ve lived in Dublin my whole life, so it might seem safe to assume I know the city inside out.
Or do I?
There isn’t a season of the year when tourists aren’t wandering its streets, and I love to see them look upon it all with fresh eyes. It’s beautiful. They make me wish I could see it for the first time.
Last night, I knew I would have a couple of hours to myself, so I brought my camera into town. Before I took a picture, I asked myself a question which was answered with the first click of the shutter.
How do you view your city as a stranger? You take its photograph.
As I sought objects of interest to capture, I spotted things I had never noticed, from the detail on the lamps of O’Connell Bridge to the curvature of the Liffey walls.
Dublin wouldn’t be Dublin without people, and to these new discoveries I could add something else that had never before been seen, and never would again; moments in their lives.
So, here are 24 photographs from my rediscovery of my city on one Saturday night in September. I hope you enjoy them.
These images are also viewable on my Flickr profile.
