KICK THE WALL – PAINT A BOX STREET ART IN SALTHILL
RED METAL SCULPTURE AT EYRE SQUARE IN GALWAY [ARTIST – EAMONN O’DOHERTY]
The Quincentennial “Sails” Corten Steel Sculpture By Éamonn O’Doherty
I located a photograph of this sculpture that was captured using a normal lens rather than an ultra-wide lens so there is less distortion.
Éamonn O’Doherty (1939 – 4 August 2011), born in Derry, Northern Ireland, was an Irish sculptor, painter, printmaker, photographer and lecturer. He was best known for his sculptures in public places. He died, aged 72, in Dublin, Ireland.
TRIBUTE TO DAVID ATTENBOROUGH WHO IS NOW 93 – LONGWOOD AVENUE IN THE PORTOBELLO AREA OF DUBLIN
An entity or group known as Subset have recently created a Street Art tribute to David Attenborough on his 93rd birthday.
A few years ago I purchased an RX0 camera and it is tiny and even though it cost about Euro 990 I was happy with it but earlier this year it was replaced by a Mark II version which is much better and currently retails at Euro 799.
I usually carry the RX0 in my pocket so I can react if I something of interest but recently I have noticed that the images are faded and not well defined towards the top of the frame.

Over the next few months I plan to visit a number of towns and cities in Ireland.
In May I will visit Belfast, Cork and Limerick.
Today the project kicked off with a visit to Drogheda.
During a visit to any location I check to see if there is any worthwhile street art or graffiti and today I was not disappointed.
According to the locals Drogheda hosts the worlds longest running annual graffiti art event on the undercrofts of the bridge of peace every August.
this event has seen some of the worlds top artists visit the site since the walls were first painted in 1993.
If you are willing to suggest some suitable locations for me to photograph please contact me.
