This is what the street was like while the student accommodation complexes were under construction.
Originally a Georgian residential street, Dominick Street was constructed in the 1750s by the Dominick family. Once a fashionable place to reside, over time the street fell into decline and many large houses became tenement buildings.
I live of Henrietta Street and the nearest tram stop is Broadstone if walk via the park at Kings Inns [the gates are closed at weekends]. However if the park is closed the nearest stop is Lower Dominick Street but for various reasons I prefer not to walk along that street. So, today, I got to Broadstone via Upper Dominick Street.
The Sigma DP1 Quattro, which I used today, is the wide-angle sibling to the DP2 Quattro. Image quality is outstanding [when everything goes right), but it’s slow to use and RAW processing requires much time and effort. In general the camera is unreliable and post-processing is a nightmare.
My 101 year old mother has doves rather than pigeons in her garden so when I saw this white bird on Dominick street I decided to check if there was a difference between a pigeon and a dove and found the following information:
“Both dove and pigeon refer to the 308 species of birds from the Columbidae family. There’s no difference between a pigeon and a dove in scientific nomenclature, but colloquial English tends to categorise them by size. Something called a dove is generally smaller than something called a pigeon, but that’s not always the case. A common pigeon, for example, is called both a rock dove and a rock pigeon.
Today I discovered that I should not use “silent shutter” at F22 when using my Sony A7RIV. I took about 600 photographs and most were unusable especially if anything in the frame moved.
Later in the day my 20TB thunderbolt drive fell of the shelf destroying one of the two 10TB hard-drives meaning that all my photograph backup files were lost. Replacement drives are not available for at least eight weeks.
