I was in Ireland last week, this is from the Temple Bar area of Dublin. The guy on the left is Eddie Valantine, the resident vocalist in the bar on a fag break, the other guy is Paul the Bar owner. If you get chance I recommend a visit, the music is brilliant.

There was an incident going on to the right, involving a young woman overcome by intoxicating substances, the Garda had become involved. I have a couple of images that may get an airing at some stage.

Photo journalism is probably my favourite genre, I don't get chance to do much of it and even less if anything finds its way to EPZ

Anyway let me know what you think

Camera:Nikon D300 Check out Nikon Nation!
Lens:sigma 24-70
Recording media:RAW (digital)

Thanks everyone. I was a bit shocked when I looked at the link to Paul Stefans image. I do remember it from when he posted, but I cant believe its the same bar, and the same guy (I think) - tho' he does chain smoke. I had thought Paul's image was from the Temple Bar pub (just along from the Quays Bar).

I recommend it if you go a great mix of Irish folk and rock, all live..helped down with a pint (alright 3 or 4 - I lost count) of the black and white stuff.

I go to Ireland 3 or 4 times a year, but its only the second time with the camera, the first time was over 2 years ago when I first picked up a dSLR - and the images then were dreadful.

Thanks again everyone.
