Dublin, ROI: August 2016

Dublin grew substantially during the Georgian period, and the evidence is still there today with its wide roads and tall, striking buildings in parts of the city.

The rows of chimney stacks and the decreasing window size – due to a heavy tax on glazing windows shrink in size higher in the buildings – particularly caught my eye.

The red brick of the residential areas are in contrast to the grey, which potentially would have been chalk white when built, of the formal buildings.
