This could be a photograph I’d taken of my Grandmothers dressing table. It isn’t. This is part of Dublins newest museum (It had only been open a few days before I visited it in October last year). To me this was a highlight and stands in stark contrast from the Disneyland that is the Guinness Storehouse.
In 1911 there was over 100 people living in this house and 850 in the one street. This shot is just a tiny part of a recreation of a small flat where a family lived until the early seventies (Thats 1979 not 1879). It’s humbling and thought provoking. If you are ever in Dublin visit 14 Henrietta Street.

I shamelessly stole the title from the Rubberbandits (Look them up on YouTube. Not for the faint of heart). There really was a “horse outside” of the Guinness storehouse. Ready and willing to take well-healed and well lubricated tourists back into the city centre…
…We took a more traditional Taxi.

I was in Dublin a couple of weeks ago and I wanted to visit the famine memorial. It’s a series of statues depicting poor unfortunates wandering along the banks of the river Liffey looking for food or hope. I added a tint for a little more drama
