On a bright sunny April Friday, we visited Monaghan on business, and spend a little time around the busy town centre wiith the Fujifilm X-T2. Here’s some of the images.
St Patrick’s Church (Anglican)
Junction of Church Square and Glasslough Street…
Dublin Road… Visually, I really like this street, its curvature, the shape and form of the shops, the advertising banner – its a busy, fussy scene, a typical Irish small-town streetscape, all under the watchful presence of the spire of the Catholic Church on the hill.
Bank – The Black and White images was made using Acros film simulation, with a red filter to deepen the sky shades.
I wasnt going to include this image – it wasnt even meant to exist – I just accidentally hit the shutter. The car is out of focus and the shutter speed is too slow, and it’s badly blurred, so its a reject… BUT I LIKED IT, and I didnt want to include it, BUT, then I remembered that the famed Parisian photographer, Cartier-Bresson once said that ‘sharpness is a bourgeois concept’ – so that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.
