Street Photo Diary: Issue 31 - Random Acts of Photography


It was a warm and sunny February day… Well, warm might be pushing it. Let me start again. It was milder than it had been February day… Oh, never mind…

I would love to infuse this post with some great artistic and penitent message, but I basically just wanted to go out and shoot, and so I did. I hadn’t been getting out to do as much street photography as I would like, because it had been bitterly cold for a while, and I have been getting over an illness that’s been bugging me since Christmas. So when it did finally pick up a bit I jumped at the chance. 

I began my Photowalk on Dublin’s Synge (pronounced “sing”) Street (from the movie of the same name!), and from there headed across the back streets, and then down through the main part of the capital until I reached the cultural quarter of Temple Bar. The city has changed so much over the last few months, ever since the new tram lines opened. Despite some ongoing teething issues, the new line has made the city feel much smaller. From a photographic point of view, it’s great that the roadworks are finally no longer blocking the view, and it also means that you can see things in a different light.

For this set, I shot entirely on the Fuji X-Pro 2 with 18-55mm lens. I also made a video of the progress, so if you want to see how I got these shots, check it out on my YouTube Channel.
