It’s something that everyone does – complain that you don’t have access to anywhere nearby to take good pictures.
I used to get frustrated in Glasgow, thinking I’d rather be in the highlands with all those gorgeous landscapes. People here in Dublin complain they don’t have a car to get out into the countryside. But I don’t think you necessarily need to be out in the wilderness to find good pictures, and I don’t think that you”’re stuck with an ‘urban decay’ theme if you”’re in the city, either…
My own favourite spots in the city, which are by no means secret but you might just find that you hadn’t thought to take a camera along to would be:
Glasnevin Cemetery – up the back for the really old stuff, lots of little details to be found, over on the side next to the botanics there are also some lovely little gothic arched windows, beautifully carved calligraphy, and some serious ivy action…
That’s not to mention the actual city centre itself with all the buildings and bridges and people and monuments and life… there’s so much to get out and shoot. Don’t waste your day in front of the internet!
…well of course – except for reading my blog ;)
