Took a leisurely stroll around the streets of my native Limerick for the first time in quite a few years. This is one of the images that resulted.
The iconic bronze statue of Daniel O’Connell – the Liberator, a giant of Irish history – has stood on its high granite plinth at the top of the city’s main thoroughfare, named after him, since 1857.
He is flanked on both sides by the Georgian elegance of the oval-shaped terrace known as The Crescent, one of the architectural highlights of the city.
My objective with this image was to maintain the monument, as much as possible, in its original historical and architectural context without the intrusion of the busy street with its passing traffic, parked cars and office signage.
