Great Party Last Night!

Sunday morning and the city streets are almost empty, save for some hung-over “professional” revellers still locked into party mode and a few people making their way home from early Morning Mass. The only musical accompaniment is provided by the buskers, and they playing speculatively, not with any apparent passion or artistic mission, their thin sound piercing the cool, clear morning air.

A few hours earlier this same place had been a scene of noisy, swaying activity. Where veiled and tiara'd Proto-Brides, each in their finery and on their last night of maidenly freedom, were attended noisily, enthusiastically, until the early hours, by their hand-maids; tipsy, pink horned, pink eared, pink hatted and out for maximum enjoyment.

Music boomed out of every Pub doorway, the Guinness
flowed like a river, the Crack was second to none, and only glacial progress was possible through the crowd of singers, dancers and drinkers.

Ah!.....happy days…!

Please see workshop to get the idea.

Hi Bill,
Excellent street photo! Very clear and sharp with strong composition, natural colors, and good use of light. Just a pity that we don't see the face of the man with a kilt! :) Very well seen and done! Annie

Smail when I looked at it Bill
Kilts in Eire? Great street scne in the right perspective

Hello Bill,
Excellent street life rendering!
A simple composition, but all the great details catches interest...
Good feeling of depth, great lazy morning atmosphere!

Hi Bill. Without your very well written and entertaining notes I would have suggested a closer view of the foreground group (which I hope you also got). However, the accompanying notes make this wider view necessary and but for the parked car it would make a good B+W. I think a crop down to just below the Heineken sign concentrates the viewers attetion without losing "the feeling". Just an opinion of course.

Mm what a sexy men legs :-) Yummie
Good and nice Bill, strong details, I like it

Hi Bill,

I like the viewpoint that allows the street to lead us gently round the curve (I nearly said round the bend!) into the distance. The contrasting groups of people, each with their own agenda, really make the image.

You chose just the right time to take this. Your w/s montage shows that when it's busier the street itself disappears in the crowd, while without the human element the shot wouldn't have been half as appealing.

Thank you,


Very good street shot Bill !
Perhaps its just me, but i'm thinking the exposure one stop lower than this may have made it even more appealing ;-)

Best regards, Daniel

Hi Bill

this is the sort of shot we click and than think: WHAT?? :-)
Ofcourse the bestselling item here is the gent in the kilt.
It was intresting to read what you wrote to Rob Viking..
Is not also the 'pipe-bag' used in Ireland?
Indeed - English and Irish are strongly diffrent.. on its Merrit:A Dutchman and a German are also diffrent .. do we look alike in many things.

Bottom line .. nice you also made a sticker for us in putting the HEINEKEN board on the right

Nice photo Bill, donno why I have missed it.

Late best whish to you and your dear ones for 2008
Warmest greetings,
