DUBLIN ICON

Raheny Camera Club currently have an exhibition in my local (Raheny) library. It is well worth a visit and there are some lovely photos on display.

But I just wanted to draw attention to one aspect of the exhibition in this post, and that is the number of photos of the iconic ESB Pigeon House Chimneys.

While they are quite ugly, it was clearly the right decision not to demolish them when the plant was decommissioned. They have become a Dublin icon over time.

A welcoming sight as you approach the city by sea or by air. And their status is underlined by the extent to which they are photographed from all angles and in all shades of lighting.
