Kilmainham Gaol, Dublin

Another picture of the East Wing of Kilmainham Gaol in Dublin. In use for 128 years, it served as the prison for many of the leaders of the campaign for Irish independence.

  1. Black and white helps to narrow your focus, and in this case helps you appreciate the architecture. At first I thought, what beautiful curves! And then I noticed the grill and read your caption. Suddenly what seemed like a beautiful maze became very somber. I now understand that much suffering took place in that prison, but some might say some good continues to come from it too. Thanks for the stimulation.

  2. Beautiful in the way you framed it and captured the light through the darkness of this place. This light – especially in the ceiling – may represent a glimpse of Hope for every inmate as their cell doors opened now and then… A picture that definitely makes you reflect and remember. Thanks a lot.
