These are more raw documentary street photography. I remain a fly on the wall and capture the energy of the streets, the moods of the subjects, and do so without being a spectacle. Much like how documentary wedding photography truly is in it’s correct context. This type of street photography is very relevant to my style of wedding photography. I think the ability to do street photography separates those who use the journalistic word around as a buzz word, and those who truly have this as their native style. Let’s hit the streets of Dublin.
After a delicious bangers and mash lunch and a pint, I took a long walk in city centre and eventually to Kilmainham Gaul prison for a tour of this historic building.
This next photo is a bit chilling and haunting, the homeless have a tough time surviving in Ireland because the Garda (police) are known to be rough on them. I can still hear the lady yelling “This is wrong!” as they took her into custody.
My journey into the hood begins, on the way to tour the old prison.
This older lady who lived here could barely exit her own driveway with all the vegetation, me thinks she’s a plant hoarder. She did tell me how to get to the old prison though!
And I made it….lagged behind on the tour, didn’t need a bunch of people with cameras in my shots. lol
There is a TON of history here, many Irish rebels were executed right where the cross is, by firing squad. It got real Easter of 1916. I don’t want to give away too much history because I encourage you to visit yourself and get it first hand. I hope you’ve enjoyed Dublin!
