  1. Art Deco church in Drumcondra

    27 Oct 2020

    Griffith Avenue is one of the most beautiful streets in central Dublin. The majestic trees along the road on both sides give this place an incredible charm Green in the summer, exploding with colours in Autumn. Among these trees and the surrounding low-rise buildings, there is a magnificent architectural object…


  2. Intrepid 4x5 Mk 4 camera - new adventure

    16 Oct 2020

    It took me only two years to get back to large format photography. And I mean here - camera with the lens as I am continually using my incredible pinhole cameras with perspective correction (4x5 and 8x10).  After selling Sinar F2 (in 2018), which I had been using for many…


  3. Large format 8x10

    18 Jul 2020

    Writing of this post will be stretched in time - a form of a short diary.  I am starting on Saturday morning on the 11th of July, and I can’t wait until the next week to tell you what I feel today… And I am amazed. My visual perception of…

  5. Wesley House

    03 Jul 2020

    For the first time this year, I didn't write my Saturday blog for two weeks in a row. Good to be back after this unexpected break.  The restrictions have been loosened a bit so it would seem that it will be easier to reach certain places. Not necessarily. Several areas…


  6. Power plants

    12 Jun 2020

    There are places that you can’t always enter, let alone photograph. Places that are often fascinating and full of magic. This fascination can be based on various premises. In my case, it is the form of the subject, its purpose and historical aspect.  Industrial facilities right after modernist architecture are…


  7. Hendrons

    05 Jun 2020

    Walking down Dominick Street Upper, at some point, a fascinating and unique structure emerges. A four-story, white rendered block with horizontal glazing, flat roof and tall lift tower. It’s Hendrons former Showroom. Then, along the Palmerston Place stretches the further part, workshops © Artur Sikora Hendrons Brothers, founded in 1911,…


  8. Texaco House

    29 May 2020

    The weather is fantastic these days, so I’m trying to take advantage of it. Not only by cycling to my new favourite swimming spot but also by photographing Dublin and its architecture more often than usual In such illumination and through a red filter, everything looks simply wonderful. With intense…


  9. Dublin suburb libraries

    09 May 2020

    Photographing Ringsend Public Library, helped me to realise how very interesting these small beautiful buildings are. Following the same path, I visited the remaining three I mentioned in the post last week.  Updated restrictionists allowed me to move around Dublin a bit further at last, and I decided to use…


  10. Longing…

    09 Apr 2020

    Something completely different today. A few ordinary snapshots from a mobile phone that don’t bring anything special except documenting the moment. A few moments, actually, that I miss very much. A few weeks ago, everything changed suddenly in a way nobody expected. It made me stop doing what I was…

    Church of the Annunciation in Finglas West is one of the biggest churches in Dublin. It was designed by David Keane (David Keane & Partners, later KMD Architecture) in 1967.

  12. In Memoriam…

    15 Feb 2020

    This text was supposed to be about something else. Due to unexpected circumstances, however, I decided to change the subject.  Paul Koralek, cofounder of renowned architectural practice Ahrends, Burton, Koralek Architects (ABK Architects), passed away a few days ago.  I had a chance to meet him while working at ABK…


  13. Short break

    07 Feb 2020

    In a post last week I wrote about my fast changing neighbourhood. However, this does not apply to the entire area. There are still places here that are slightly different.  Like this across the street. Several lanes with picturesque red brick terrace houses built in 1890–1910 for dockers.  Many of…
