Innovative Streets

It’s good to look down sometimes. I think this was used to hold a decorative safety pole but I don’t remember ever seeing it used. There are poles on the other side of this narrow street however.

The street of course is Paul Street behind Waterstones.

I was going to blog that yesterday was World Book Day but time ran out for me and the power cut didn’t help my motivation much. Nevertheless, blogged it. Check out some of my photos from last year’s World Book Day celebration!

Thanks for commenting! Yes, that’s just down the road from Tesco. I love shooting from down low as it does create that different perspective that people don’t recognise immediately!

I took a shot of a covering of some sort in Dublin. Might have been a water main or sewer cover. It was quite decorative. So glad I’m not the only one taking shots of these things.

this is such a great shot,
did you think the shot would turn out this good when you were looking through the viewfinder?:)

Thanks Ziemek,

I had an idea it would come out because the sun was so low and the people walking down the street would be cast in shadow. I’ve take similar shots before so going by experience I knew the shadows cast on the ground would be good too! 🙂
