Row Houses with Colorful Doors--Blackpool, Cork

While studying at UCC, I am taking an architecture module titled Conservation Theory and Practice. The course is taught by a series of lecturers who discuss a range of topics including the evolution of historic Irish building, conservation technologies, surveying, and analyzing relevant legislation. In addition to the lecture series, we have a project component which coincides with the third year studio whose focus is on the Blackpool neighborhood of Cork City. The assignment is to represent an aspect of the neighborhood's fabric through photographs and annotated drawings. At the end of the project, the class will have compiled a historic record of the area. After spending five hours wandering down every main street and alley way after lecture, I had taken a lot of pictures, but had come to no conclusion on what I wanted to focus my study on. 
This series of row houses was one of my favorite shots of the day.
