Photography portfolio

Location: Howth, Co.Dublin
Theme: The Seaside

I chose Howth as the location for my portfolio. I wanted to portray the daily activity in the area as well as its connection with the ocean that surrounds it. Howth has many interesting aspects, such as its trademark boats, lighthouse, and benches along the harbour; I wanted to include all of these. Howth can be a busy area at times, so I wanted to include a picture of  some people inhabiting the area.

 

Red and blue #1

With this photograph I wanted to show the Landmark red and blue boats in Howths harbour, these are something that always come to mind when i think of Howth.
