For our next shot, Joe took me to Dublin’s Gen­eral Post Of­fice build­ing, as 2016 is the cen­te­nary year of the Easter Up­ris­ing, and the GPO is the iconic sym­bol of this. To start with I was shoot­ing from eye-level, but the car trails didn’t seem that im­pres­sive. Joe sug­gested I move the cam­era down lower to get the trails shoot­ing through the whole frame. I no­ticed a bus ap­proach­ing, so I waited for it to reach the edge of the frame be­fore re­leas­ing the shut­ter. It filled the frame from left to right and gave me larger, more com­plex trails than the cars. The way the trails lined up with the struc­ture of the build­ing was the ic­ing on the cake – the lights look like they’re part of the en­vi­ron­ment.
