Photo: Eustace Street, Dublin 2

Em, I take pictures of streets in Dublin. Sometimes they’re ruined by tourists looking like tourists. Sometimes they’re ruined by just people. Which is probably why so many of my paintings tend to have no people - as you’ll see shortly when I post a whole load of new paintings.

Photo: Lower Ormond Quay

Do you ever think when you’re on a bus going down Dublin’s quays that the quays on the other side of the Liffey are like a background in an epic cartoon chase?
Well anyway, I took this photo of some houses on Lower Ormond Quay from upstairs on a bus, an ordinary Dublin Bus rather than [...]

Photo: Literary Parade, St. Patrick’s Park

Another Dublin city centre photo for you. This is the Literary Parade in St. Patrick’s Park by the cathedral.
I took this picture from Bull Alley Street. If Nicholas Street and Patrick Street weren’t so crude in how they manage traffic I might go in the park more often. If you go in you can [...]

Photo: By The Viking Boat

A photo of some windows by the Viking Boat sculpture in Dublin, where Essex Quay meets Wood Quay - though technically the windows are on Lower Exchange Street next door to the former church of Ss. Michael and John, itself the former Theatre Royal of Smock Alley.

Photo: Runners, Rook

As a background I prefer the plain canvas of a dark raincloud than that of a pure blue sky. These might well be football boots and not runners, but the rook is a rook. And I’m not responsible for putting either up there.

Studio Photos

I’ve posted an album of photos of inside and outside my studio. It’s on FaceBook but you should be able to view them without logging in.
The photos complement the existing page here on my studio but don’t yet include any shots of the orchard, the house that the stableyard is attached to, or of [...]

Photo: Oifig An Phoist

Another Dublin photo for you. It’s the post office on Usher’s Quay in Dublin 8.
If you’re not Irish, Oifig An Phoist is Irish for “Post Office”. In fact even if you are Irish, that’s what it is.

Photo: The Oval

A photo of a pub in Dublin for you. It’s The Oval as seen from the way to avoid the crowds on O’Connell Street.
