High Rise Crane

A view of the crane helping in the construction of a new office block behind Cork City Hall. This is from the lobby of the carpark next door.

    Nice one. At first glance it’s hard to see if it’s a poster or a reflection or something. Nice to see you spending some time with your older lens!

    Thanks 🙂

    What’s more, try clicking on the “print” link above. I have a few photos uploaded to Deviant Art and they’re available in a variety of sizes. I’ll be uploading more as time goes by so I should have quite a few of the photos here up there eventually.
    Not sure what I’ll do with my street shots. Even though they’re candid shots I still need a model release form I think, although it is for artistic purposes and other photographers use that argument successfully.
