Running around Eighteen Turns

We went down to Fota House a few weeks ago to see Eighteen Turns created by Daniel Libeskind. We weren’t as lucky as Ryan as there were parents with kids running and screaming around the piece all afternoon.
What better way to remember the day than the photo above eh?

Working

When you travel to Cork by train you’ll pass underneath the north side of the city through a railway tunnel. We had to switch trains on the way back from Dublin the other day and finished our journey in one of Iarnrod Eireann’s old stock. They didn’t even turn the lights on as we went through the tunnel but that gave me the opportunity to snap this gentleman working.

HOWTO: Photo was a 20 second exposure and his face was completely blown out but by decreasing the contrast I brought out his reflection in the window. B/W conversion was done using the channel mixer with RGB settings of 29.6/161.7/-200 to give a psuedo infra-red effect.
