PHOTOGRAPHED MAY 2022
These images date from May 2022 but I decided to reprocess them using two different AI applications that I am beta testing
R & H Hall has been the leading supplier to the Irish feed industry of grain and non-grain feed ingredients since 1839.
The tall structure in my photographs has a visual significance beyond its intrinsic utilitarian design as a result of its visibility from many parts of the city. It serves through its height and scale to define the remaining commercial docks area of the city from some distance.
Grain store building, c. 1945, part of R. & H. Hall complex. Mass concrete walls with pilaster detail and flat roof. Metal windows to ground and first floor and to all floors on east elevation.
I visited Cork City in may 2022 and the city had not fully recovered from Covid-19 restrictions and the weather was not the best. When I visited the docklands the general are was bleak and somewhat lonely and much of what to see was in poor condition.
This was my first time to use GEO-Tagging and I also more-or-less limited myself to using a Sigma 24-105 lens as it was weather resistant.
Note: On 31 March 2022 the Health (Preservation and Protection and Other Emergency Measures in the Public Interest) Act 2020 ended. This gave the Minister for Health the power to make regulations and introduce measures to slow down the spread of the virus.
