Photographer's Note

Typical shop and street scene in the Temple Bar district of Dublin City, Ireland.

Wandering the narrow cobbled streets of Temple Bar is definitely a highlight of visiting Dublin. The Temple Bar is Dublin's cultural quarter and has a very lively nightlife. It's one of those places that is highly popular with tourists and locals alike. It's a great place to eat, drink, and listen to street performers.

Among the numerous cultural institutions in the area are the Irish Photography Centre, Irish Film Institute, and Temple Bar Music Centre. And yes, Trinity College is right around the corner.

But despite the talk of lively nightlife, my shot here depicts a quieter Temple Bar that perhaps can only be experienced in the early morning hours before much of the city has awaken. My wife and I had arrived in Dublin the day before, and after a very early first night, we awoke early the next day and headed into the city on the Luas (the city's light rail system).

Temple Bar was one of the first spots we explored as just about everything else had yet to open. On this overcast early morning, the saturated shutters on this craft store really caught my eye.

For post-processing, I used a little boosted color saturation on the yellows of the window sills to bring a little more attention to the shutters.

Hope you enjoy!
