Sunday Service at St Patrick’s

I have a thing about wires… more than a thing! I hate them and will often not even bother to take a photo if there’s any sign of a wire in sight… so, occasionally my perspectives of buildings are not what you would usually see on the postcards…

St Patrick’s Church in Dalkey is an attractive building… the stonework precise… the construction accurate. I was messing with the views and the orientation of the sun… to find something that I could capture without the damned unsightly strings draped across the picture. This photo grabs my fancy the most…

St Patrick’s up on the hill in Dalkey…

For all out there who think I’m overdoing the Dalkey experience… I’ll be slowing down very soon. I still have many photo’s that can be slipped into posts… I’ll save them for the occasional entry… 😉

I have much to do in preparation for the next week’s market… after that I’m going to start getting to grips with the Royal Canal walks again…

Hope your weekend is going well for you… long may the sun shine! 😀

  1. I hear you about power lines… unless they work in the image, I try every angle to avoid them.. and when all else fails, Photoshop them out!

    I also often just decided against taking a picture if there is a wire or anything else spoiling the photo

      The worst part over here… wires are often strung right across fields… usually when you don’t expect to see them… the place is filled with them… often spoiling great views! To bad! 😉

    I have never been to Ireland and so now that I have found your blog I am enjoying reading about the town in which you find yourself. I will read back to find out how you landed there and what you are doing.
    If I knew how to, I would put you on my blog roll and I am honored that you wish to put me on yours. Thank you.

      No… I’m the one that’s to be grateful for being allowed to place your link on my roll! Thanks… basically, opportunity brought us to Ireland… that… and the need for a more peaceful life!
      Now the opportunity seems to have withered… (temporarily, I hope!!) The relative peace is still about! As an example… I walked about 10 km’s today… without ever even thinking of any potential danger!!
      Just a pity the weather isn’t always what we would like it to be! 😉

    “Take a picture – it will last longer” doesn’t like powerlines either, her post Day 89 Power Tower.
    But “Imagery of Light” used the powerlines on her May 28th post, Highway 4, to give a feeling of motion.
    Try a couple of photos using the lines instead of being beaten by them ?

      You know… when I was writing the post I was thinking of a few picture I have taken in the last few years… all taken for the effect the wires create! I will place one later this week… just to prove that I often break my own rules… what’s the old thing about exception? 😉
