Georgian Windows and Georgian Doors

Georgian Windows and Georgian Doors


I found myself doing a little photography project the other day, that I hadn't started out intending to do. I was taking some pictures around the georgian area of Dublin and I noticed something funny in one of the Windows.

Then I started paying closer attention and one thing led to another and then I was taking a whole collection of windows and doors. I actually have lots of pictures from this area in my library already, but I always like challenging myself to find better ways to take a subject. In a way it's quite liberating to limit yourself to shooting a certain subject and it certainly focuses the mind. Anyway, it was an exercise more than anything, but I do love the texture and  colour of the various facades in this particular part of the city.

Collapsed Door

I think a bit of collapse may have occurred here!

For those interested in the technical details, these were all shot on a D700 with a 28-300mm Lens. I did a little bit of processing in Lightroom but mostly just adding a vignette and increasing the clarity a bit.
