Photo of the Week

Last weekend myself and my husband Mr P were in Dublin, you can see that I've bombarded my blog about it all week.

 I can't believe it's the weekend again - this week has gone in so fast.

There are so many wonderful photo opportunities everywhere in Dublin and it's only since I started my blog that I have really got into taking photos.

I know they aren't brilliant most of the time but I'm getting better - shaky hand and all!

This is a photo of the Dublin Spire, also known as the Monument of Light.

I have to admit I never took much notice of it before but like I say I am seeing things differently since I got my camera out.

I saw a photo of it in a shop taken at a similar angle so I thought I would give it a try as well and I'm really pleased with the result.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend.

I'm linking up with Louise from Team Lloyd for Photo of the Week, please visit her site from here and check out the other fabulous Photo's of the Week.

  9. Oooh Dublin - lovely, I have only ever been the once and I all I remember really is drinking guinness (I was so much younger!!!) - but you are right suddenly taking a camera with you everywhere becomes a photo opportunity!

    I love the angle you have taken this, and it is so much more striking because of the gorgeous blue sky! Thank you for joining in with Photo of The Week :) XXX
