Spring at Last


Its been a long winter. It wasn’t particularly severe, it felt like it was never going to end, but over the past few days we’ve had our normal April weather, sunshine and showers.  It’s amazing how a spell of decent weather seems to improve peoples outlook.

I had a walk round Belfast in the sun and took some photographs, mainly in Titanic Quarter but also in Cathedral Quarter.

This is the Belfast Titanic Hotel that I think opened last October. The building was originally the Harland and Wolff Shipyard Drawing Offices and its just to the right of the Titanic Building. I think this is Belfast’s most recent hotel but probably not for long as there’s a lot more in the pipeline.

This is Queen’s Square. In taking this photograph I stood with the Albert Clock to my back. Most photographs you see of the square will feature the fountains in the foreground and the Albert Clock in the background. Face the other way and you can place one of the Harland and Wolff cranes in the background. It’s good to be different!
