Dublin Fringe Festival

Filed under: Events — photographydublin @ 4:10 pm

As this years Dublin Fringe Festival is now on, I thought I’d post a photo from last year.

This is from the French theatre company, Compagnie Carabosse – and was a pretty big event in the IFSC. I don’t think there’s anything quite so spectacular this year. However, lots of other interesting shows to see.

Ferris wheel

My last photo for now from the Dun Laoghaire Festival this year.

Ferris Wheel at night

More difficult to take than I expected. The wheel wasn’t turning very fast, and I found it hard to get a long enough exposure to get really good light trails. I suppose I should have used an ND filter – but didn’t have one with me (hadn’t really expected to need one for this !).

Was driving around the M50 yesterday, and saw the same wheel (I think) being erected in a field near Palmerstown.

Yet another from the FOWC.

I managed to get a good position just on front of the stage by arriving early. This one is of Rossa Ó Snodaigh of Kila.

Went down to the festival again this afternoon. Luckily the weather was good, and Dun Laoghaire was packed. Here’s one of my first photos from the day – I’ll post some more later.
