For this weeks challenge, I picked an image I took last year during the Bram Stoker Festivals Vampire Hunt. Its a wonderful structure with a rich history, dating back to 1191AD. Interestingly enough it is one of two medieval Cathedrals in Dublin city, the other is Christ Church which is about 60 years older, both a stone’s throw from each other. In fact both started life as Roman Catholic, but are now Church of Ireland. Whilst Pat’s is now the National Cathedral, with Christ church belonging to the diocese of Dublin and Glendalough. Over the years there was a good bit of rivalry between the two, but this seeks to have settled in recent years. Some of you might have heard of Jonathan Swift? The author of Gulliver Travels! Well he was the Dean of St. Patrick’s Cathedral from 1713 to 1745.
I took this image with my ever reliable D40 in colour and then converted to B&W, with a slight vignette to add to the mood, in CS6. And that was it. The rest of this weeks MMC images will go live some time later today over on Leanne Cole’s Blog, depending on your time zone. Each week there are contributions from from photographers around the globe. So whether you are looking for inspiration or have a thing for black & white photography, you know were to find it. 🙂
