PHOTOGRAPHED 28 OCTOBER 2022 PUBLISHED 28 JUNE 2023
I purchased a Sony FX30 as soon as it became available but when I first used it I discovered that the RAW files could not be processed and had to wait for months for updates to Lightroom and Photoshop. I did find some work-arounds but the work-flow was complicated and tedious and the result was not always consistent or usable. I am now in the process of reviewing images from October 2022.
St Stephen’s Green Park is a historical park and garden, located in the centre of Dublin city. Cared for by the Office of Public Works, the park is an important public resource in the area, and provides an oasis of green calm in the middle of a bustling city. Its four centuries of history are eventful and complex, involving such important figures as Arthur Guinness, 1st Baron Ardilaun, and Countess Constance Markievicz. The park itself hosts a large number of important sculptural monuments to Irish history. Many species of birds and plants also call the park their home. Public facilities at St Stephen’s Green Park include a playground and a garden for the visually impaired.
