Dublin in Pictures – A #FriFotos Montage

For those of you that don’t know the ultimate pain and wonder that is Twitter, there is a weekly conversation of sorts called #FriFotos. Started by Jonathan Epstein (@EpsteinsTravels), Twitter users from all over the world come together to share their photos on a given theme (usually announced the Tuesday prior), using the hashtag #FriFotos to follow and share together. You can read more about the rules of #FriFotos here.

This week’s theme happens to be CAPITALS, which could easily be interpreted in a variety of ways. But we’re taking the chance today to celebrate our beautiful Irish capital city, Dublin.

The many photos you see here are a collection of those we’ve taken ourselves and many we’ve found shared through Creative Commons licenses on Flickr. God bless the talented photographers who chose to photograph Dublin’s fair city and share them so generously. To find out more about each photographer, click on the photo. You can also hover over each to find out where it was taken.
