Monaghan, Ireland

Monaghan Town

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.

Monaghan Square…

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.
