Many of the photographs have been taken using a fisheye lens. I wanted to capture the incredible design and architecture of these places. I love that each of these picture have there own character and feel to them.
The Spire of Dublin was the beginning of our Dublin Photo Travel. Alternatively the Monument of Light, was installed January 21, 2003. The 120m structure designed by Ian Ritchie Architects, is the center piece of O’Connell Street. A place to go shopping and to enjoy coffee shops and American Fast Foods. You also can go to the Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre located at the end of Grafton Street (see starting picture).

The ground floor introduces the beer's four ingredients (water, barley, hops and yeast), and the brewery's founder, Arthur Guinness.
