Limerick Inner City Life (Goldie)

This was taken from the 7th floor of The Savoy hotel in Limerick City. It’s a view of Limerick (or any city) that most people don’t see or, if they do, pay any attention to. It stands out to me as it’s the unseen side of a city, the ‘behind the scenes’ part without any shiny shopfronts.

On a vaguely related note I always pay attention to the condition of the toilets in any establishment. Sometimes you have an extremelly fancy restaurant/store but the toilets are very basic or even dirty. Which my mum always said to me is a reflection on the establishment overall. If they can’t bother to keep the toilets clean how can you trust them with the hygeine of your food, after sales service etc.
The second photo is just the original cropped and in black and white. I couldn’t decide which I preferred so I posted both.

    You’re not alone in this; I have tons of pics like it from my travels all over the globe!

      I always like to have a wander around a hotel (with or without my camera) after we check in and unpack. Just curious to see what it’s like and if there’s any good photos ops.

    Love this. This reminds me of Japan…the crowdedness. Love it.
