Show us... your town/city, your country

Show us cities of the world is your chance to show us where you live, or where you've been. Please feel free to share pictures from this location, or start a thread for a new location. The usual Dyxum content rules apply- but to assist fellow Dyxumers inspired to visit locations that are shown, please indicate where in your town/city the photos were taken.

This thread is open for C&C and for posting additional pictures. Please ONLY post pictures taken at the town or city indicated- or start a new thread.


I am in Dublin fairly regularly to visit family and am surprised that we do not yet have a cities thread for it on Dyxum. There are some good photo opportunities - here are just a few taken a couple of weeks ago.

1. St. Stephens Green. This is located right in the centre of Dublin and features some monuments marking Ireland's past and its famous people (e.g. famine memorial, Yeats memorial garden). It's a very pleasant park and offers a calm space right in the middle of the city - worth a visit.



2. Croke Park. This stadium, in Dublin's Northside, is the third largest in Europe, with a capacity of 82,300 and is home to Gaelic sports, in particular football (not soccer!) and hurling. It also has an interesting and unfortunately bloody history entwined with Ireland's struggle for independence in the early 20th century. The tour of the stadium is interesting.



3. Clontarf seafront. Dublin is on the sea and its stretch of coastline offers a mix of beaches, industrial port areas as well as more dramatic cliffs. Clontarf, on the Northside, offers views over the bay to the south past Dublin port and the iconic chimneys of the Poolbeg power station, which are now listed as protected structures.

Nice shots Simon, thanks for the contribution starting the new Dublin thread.

#1) great colours and use of light
#2) interesting "action" shot. I like this composition
#3) not sure if it is my eye, but you might want to straighten the horizon a tad in PP
#4) the use of black and white in #4 works very well too- giving it an nostalgic feel.

Both #3 & #4 suggest you might have had a visit from the dusty monkeys on your sensor. Couple of dots on both fairy central in picture.
F-Stop? F-Stopped! Anyone know how to get it going again???My Flickr

Hi, thanks for the feedback. I'll need to look again for dustspots on 3 and 4, although I think that some of them are birds.
