When I was ten, my grandfather gave me my first SLR camera (a Nikon, of course). It was an upgrade from the point-and-shoot I’d been toting around for the previous five years. The camera never left my side. To save on film processing costs, we converted the laundry room at my grandparents house into a dark room. When my Nana complained about the accumulating piles of laundry, my grandfather banished their cars to the driveway, bought a bigger enlarger, and repurposed the entire garage into a photo development lab. Needless to say, I was hooked. I continue to carry a camera (or, more accurately, cameras) with me everywhere I go.
This gallery features some of the photos I shot while living in Dublin, Ireland during my Fall 2017 – Spring 2018 sabbatical.
