Lightsabers at Grand Canal Dock

A shot of Grand Canal Dock in Dublin, Ireland. The piece of art at the dock always reminds me of Darth Vaders Lightsaber! The shot was taken with a Nikon D810 camera using a Nikkor 16-35mm f/4 lens. I edited the photo using DXO Pro Optics 10, Adobe Lightroom 5 (to reduce the levels of all colours except red) and then reduced the noise levels using Topaz Labs DeNoise 5. Thanks for looking!

The Matt Talbot statue.

Matt Talbot Statue

The Matt Talbot statue that is on the quay in Dublin, Ireland.

The Venerable Matt Talbot (2 May 1856 – 7 June 1925) was an Irish ascetic revered by many Catholics for his piety, charity and mortification of the flesh.

Talbot was an unskilled labourer. Though he lived alone for most of his life, Talbot did live with his mother for a time. His life would have gone unnoticed were it not for the cords and chains discovered on his body when he died suddenly on a Dublin street in 1925.

Though he has not been formally recognized as a saint, Talbot may be considered a patron of men and women struggling with alcoholism. He is commemorated on 19 June. Source Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matt_Talbot)
