‘On the Ocean...’

Time to get back on board. Strong wind, rough sea but still lots of sun...

... it is easy enough to keep going with such a story looking at this photograph. We have to come back however on land... the land of concrete ;)
Mentioned in previous post Open House 2012 tour brought me back to the ‘Ocean Liner’.
Now I could climb up the steps and see pilothouse...

The Old Terminal at Dublin Airport revisited...

Roof terrace. We’ve got there through narrow stairs beside control tower where the Met Office is located since 1940.
I set my camera to take a photograph of it but...suddenly this wonderful couple appears.

I shifted my camera instantly. Such a scene is not happening too often. There was no sense anymore to photograph the tower itself without them ;)
It is exactly quintessence of comparison of The Old Terminal to the ‘Ocean Liner’ ...


Our tour which took almost 1.5 hour, ended up with fantastic lecture and slideshow about history of this building. It is not big at all but very well designed and functional.
Good old times when genuine architecture and character of the place was priority...which we sometimes lack nowadays.

That was my first Open House 2012 trip that day. Now... Central Bank was waiting for me ;) /described in previous post/
