As a travel writer, my most trusted companions on my global sojourns, have been cameras.
Often, on escapades to both bustling and remote locations, a travel writer’s journey is taken alone, in order to attempt to capture an experience of the world in its truest form, and translate that experience into words for the reader. Alongside those words go images, with photography embellishing the ideas the writer attempts to convey through the exploits of their journey.
During Ireland’s Covid-19 social-distancing measures, the Government has applied a 2km restriction on one’s movements, ensuring that when one does leave one’s private residence, for essential journeys only and exercise, one grapples to see and know one’s local area better.
Below is a selection of my photography taken purely within the 2km radius of my home in Dublin.
The Brazen Head – Dublin’s oldest pub – is closed and shut to the public, as are all bars across Dublin City.
The amphitheatre at Dublin City Council’s Civic Offices at Wood Quay devoid of human presence.
