PHOTOGRAPHED USING A SONY RX0 CAMERA
The RX0 is about the size of a matchbox so I usually carry it in my pocket every where I go incase there is something interesting to photograph. Of course one may wonder why not use a smartphone – no one is aware that I am taking photographs as I can hide it it the palm of my hand.
Unfortunately the Dean Hotel is way too expensive for me especially as I spend most of my time out photographing when I visit a city,
Set among offices in the docklands area alongside the River Lee, this trendy hotel is 4 minutes’ walk from Cork Kent train station, a 13-minute walk from the Crawford Art Gallery and 2 km from Saint Fin Barre’s Cathedral.
The chic rooms have Wi-Fi, smart TVs and Nespresso machines, as well as minifridges. Family rooms add bunk beds. Suites provide sitting areas; some feature free-standing copper baths.
Amenities include a hip bar, and a fashionable rooftop restaurant with terraces and city views, plus a gym and breakfast. (What is a hip bar – should it be a hip bath?)
