I’ve shot a lot of photos on the grounds of St. Patrick’s College but this is one of my absolute favourites. You don’t often get to see so many flowers on the lawns, the grass gets cut quite often so the lawns are usually just plain green. Add a perfect evening and some students out enjoying it to those flowers and you have the ingredients for a really nice photograph. Well, I think it is anyway. Judge for yourself 🙂
