Something blue

Cork is a city of contradictions. The old mixed with the new. Modern office blocks sit alongside grand old limestone buildings.

In other parts of the city it's harder to tell which is which. New apartment blocks sit abused and unmaintained next to the older parts of the city which look nicer and more inviting in comparison.

This door belongs to an old building in the Middle Parish.

    Texture, color, line - a great photo that brings these elements together. The lock is a nice touch.
