Phoenix Park, Magazine Fort, Dublin by 

This shot was taken in the Phoenix Park here in Dublin.
The building you can see is a very old and derelict military building called “The Magazine Fort”. The man you can see is not a friend of mine, he simply roamed into the shot as I pressed the shutter button on my camera. I was quite annoyed about him ruining my beautifully composed picture so I waited until he left and took another shot. When I printed the photos in the darkroom the shot without him walking in it was actually quite boring compared to this one. So if you are out there Mr Man, thanks for stepping into my shot.

Taken on an old Russian made Kiev 6C and using Ilford Hp5 120mm film.
The photo was hand printed by myself in a darkroom and then scanned on a thing called a scanner.

You can read a full feature about this photo on my blog – “Visions Of The Phoenix Park”:

I’m an amateur photographer based in Ireland.
Slightly obsessed with trees, black and white, infra-red and landscapes.
I love music too.
I also write a blog Visions Of The Phoenix Park

    Very nice and yes it wouldn’t be quite as effective without Mr Man :)

    I love this shot, and yes, the man in it “makes” it. Actually perfect placement. This is wonderful in all respects, including tonal values. This is a fave for me. [I have a shot the same thing happened in called “Life Happens,” so I completely understand what you’re saying!]

    I like your explanation and the fact that you use a real dark room, the photo is all the better for this method and the simple purity of it
