Ireland Photo Tour 

Thursday August 29th, 2013

Back in Dublin ... we arrived into city centre this morning with our first photo shoot of the day at Trinity College. While at the college we visited the Book of Kells to see the ancient Celtic scribes and then the famous Long Library of the college.

The rest of the morning and early afternoon the group had free time to photograph and explore some of  Dublin.  We then spent some time this afternoon at St. Patrick’s Cathedral.  The Cathedral was a great experience, besides the big picture of the beauty of the church the detail photo opportunities were at every corner of this beautiful structure. It was a living history of Ireland, almost more like a museum.

We reached our hotel by late afternoon with time to relax before dinner.  Tomorrow we will be visiting the Guinness family mansion and gardens which are now owned by the state.  The some more time in Dublin followed by our pub night at the Merry Ploughboys Pub.  Enjoy this evenings selection of photos from Trinity College and Dublin.

Welcome to Dublin ... heading to school first thing this morning.

Long Library in Trinity College, the books are still used and are hundreds of years old.  It was an amazing place to visit. Drew and Ron in the foreground.

What a place, two floors of literature.


Shot by D.C. ... notice a little poetic license with this shot!

Janet was not to far away.


The busts of different prominent figures decorated the entire library.


This art work located in Trinity Gardens is called Sphere on Sphere. Look closely now there's two Daves ... Oh No.

Oh man, good thing I didn't make this trip. I'd still be in the library shooting with Dr. Watson and a candlestick. Seriously wicked location!

And lovely Miksang image there Dave of the lamppost.

Need tutorial on how you shot the candles James - exposure is wonderful.

Hope you don't miss the "Famine" people sculptures along the River Liffey down by the dock. It was made by Rowan Gillespie in memory of the victims of the Great Famine and for their descendants that have done so much to build Canada. MF

Wow! That libray is amazing. Could you not want to study some of the very old tomes in there. Thanks again for a blogging these and all the other photos, not only is the equipment enviable but clearly the photographers know how to use their cameras.
