Mannequins in a Window in Dublin City - Thomas Fitzgerald Photography

Summer has come to Ireland, and unusually we're having a prolonged spell of good weather. The up side of that, for the photographer is that with it comes some really nice light, at least if you know where to look. The other advantage, well for me anyway, is that it makes me get out. I fond it hard to look outside and see the beautiful sunshine, and not take my camera and go outside.

I've been trying to shake things up a bit and look for more the more unusual or abstract subjects lately. You might think that with a city the size of Dublin that you would run out of things to shoot after a short period, but like any city, there's always something happening, and always something to see. You just have to look. My tastes are somewhat eclectic too. I like things like texture and light, grunge and patterns. Sometimes, I just like the way a simple subject is lit, or the colour of a simple object. Sometimes, that can be art in and of itself.

This set was all shot on a Fuji X-pro 2 with 35mm f/1.4 lens. Processed in Iridient Developer and Lightroom.
