Restaurant

A restaurant on St Patrick Street in Cork has this architectural feature over it’s door. You’re either going to love the lomo+vignette+colour effect or you’re going to hate it. This is an experiment with the newly enhanced GIMP Lomo plugin I had originally updated to work with GIMP 2.4. Elsamuko has added a few nice features.

In other news, the Guinness Storehouse photowalk was yesterday. I couldn’t make it but a number of bloggers did, including Will Knott, Darren and Alexa.
You can see some of the amazing shots from the day here, but that url may go stale in a week or so I guess. Well done to Marcus who had a huge hand in organising the trip.

Another Cork photowalk is out of the question in August unless someone else wants to organise one. I’m busy both weekends that are left this month. Perhaps in September? What about constraining it? Make it b/w only? Or portraits only, or architecture, or “secret” places in the city that people won’t recognise perhaps?

    The canopy does look very Deco…pity it’s just a Chinese take-away. If you caught the door man from a few years ago it would have been a more interesting shot – a real gargoyle that no amount of ‘Gimp’-ing would make presentable!

    Hi, thanks for posting something about the improvements.
    The black vignette would look better if it was grainy like I described in the registry. Then is doesn’t look so artificial.

    Katiec – what about a night/evening time shoot around Cork City? Weekends are so precious!

    Indeed they are. evening/night would be perfect. 15 Sept is full moon, so we might catch a few howlers! I’m away 16-23 Sept. Maybe we could even do it this month while it is still warm! I’m sure you would get a good turnout. Good plan.
