Photo Essay: The Bright Side Of Dublin

“Wait a minute, is this Dublin? Really? But it is not grey, rainy and depressing at all!” This was the first thought I had when I arrived in Dublin. Many big cities have something very characteristic and are known for something special. An icon or an atmosphere for example. Like when I draw the Eiffel Tower you would instantly think of Paris or when I say casino you would say Vegas. I always thought for Dublin it was miserable weather, grey charmless buildings and people walking with their head down. If someone would have showed me this picture I would have said Dublin, no doubt!

So is was quite a shock for me that everything I saw, was totally the opposite. For a minute it was almost disappointing. Almost! The sun was shining, people were outside having fun and everyone looked happy. The parks were filled, I heard music in the air and many buildings were actually quite nice. I considered a different dimension for a while but later on people told me I was just lucky. I got to see a rare bit of Irish sunshine. Realizing how special and precious this was, I took my camera and photographed the city. So for all of you who wonder what Dublin looks like in the sun, this is the bright side of Dublin.
