(The G Hotel, Galway) Goodness, Gracious, Great Balls of…

The G hotel is Galway’s only 5 star hotel. It was designed by Irish milliner Philip Tracey it oozes of luxury, modern design and is great to relax ‘away from it all’.

One of their main features in the hundreds of metal balls hanging from the ceiling in the main lounge room. It has floor to ceiling glass and overlooks Galway Bay. These are what I focused on here but I had to throw in one colour photo to show how loud, in-your-face one of the other rooms is (I call it the Alice In Wonderland room).

Easy Like A Sunday Morning

A man relaxing down by The Claddagh in Galway City. I’m beginning to convert a lot of photos to black and white, sometimes I wouldn’t have even thought about it if a photo is good but often they just look nicer in black and white. Maybe because there’s less colour to ‘distract’ your eyes.

Most photos I don’t frame online but this one just seemed nicer in a frame to me…

The truth is where the sculptor’s chisel chipped away the lie (Galway statues)

On the top of Shop Street, Galway there’s statue of Oscar Wilde, sitting on a bench in conversation with Estonian writer Eduard Wilde.
This is a copy of a statue that stands in Tartu in Estonia, and was presented to Galway to mark the occasion of Estonia joining the EU in 2004. The two men are unrelated and never actually met, though they were contemporaries.

A lot of tourists sit on the bench between them to get their photo taken, some ‘hobos’ like to sit there too and drink their tinnies.

We are the Music Makers

In a. Galway,i. Black&White by admin / August 23, 2011 / 0 Comments

I’ve often walked past this music store in Galway City and thought to myself that the guitars sitting in the window would make a nice photo. So last week I popped in and asked the owner of this music store could I take some photos in his store. He said no problem and I spent a while snapping away.
