If you ever set up a website you really should plan ahead and in the case of "The Streets Of Dublin" I failed to do so . To be fair most of the domain names that I had wanted were not available. The Irish Times had managed to grab ireland.com and that was my first choice. After a lot of thought I decide that streetsofdublin.com was the best domain for me especially as my site would highlight the city of Dublin but soon the scope of the project grew to include other cities, towns and villages throughout this island of Ireland and in fact it also include the city of Brussels in Belgium. I now receive many queries asking me to explain why a site operating under the name "Streets Of Dublin" includeds photographs of street art in Drogheda, Bridges in Belfast or Churches in Cork and the only answer that I can offer is "bad planning".
Over a period of about five years I have created a catalog of more than 90,000 photographs and most of them are available free of charge to anyone who wishes to use them. My big problem has always been how best to showcase my photographs and, to be honest, I have yet to find a good solution and after expending much time and effort I have come to the understanding that all that is available to me is a hybrid solution employing Sandvox, Wordpress, Flickr, Tumblr, Google+ and Pinterest.
The name of the site is the Streets Of Dublin because I had originally intended to limit my activities to Dublin city and surrounding area but as I was invited to visit and photograph other cities, towns and villages there are now sections to Belfast, Cork, Belfast and Brussels. And there are also sections devoted to my hobbies and interests.
