Guinness 7th Floor Pub

One of the best parts of visiting the Guinness Storehouse is the pub they have on the 7th floor that overlooks the city of Dublin. The entire surrounding walls are made of glass except where the elevators are located. The view is great, and the beer is even better.

This image has been edited in Lightroom. The most challenging thing is that there was a bunch of noise because the ISO was set so high. Fortunately I just bought and installed the Creative Kit from Macphun. Currently the software is on special so I got a kickin’ deal. Included in the kit is Noiseless Pro. So I gave it a whirl on this image. While the Lightroom noise settings did a good job, the image looks so much better after being put through Noiseless Pro. I’m not sure how long their sale is going on, but check the link and find out.

I have to say I left this place a little bit drunk. Fortunately I found a pub right afterwards and was able to sit and listen to traditional Irish music before heading home for the night.

In the latest news I have hired a guy to do some work on the layout of the web page. So far I’m not entirely happy with how things are going. as you can see the text area is now much narrower than it was before. That is something I did not want. Also the main image is getting cut off by the header. I have halted this persons progress and am having a second, more professional person see if they can recover the site and get it to do what I want. Please be patient with the formatting issues while I deal with little snag.



Growing up one of my biggest dreams was to explore the world. Honestly I never thought this would become reality. But at the end of 2014 I quit my job as a project manager to do just that. I sold most everything I own, packed up the remaining boxes in storage, and set out to see the world. My goals while traveling are to meet people everywhere I go, work on becoming a better photographer, and attempt to stay where the weather is not freezing. Along the way I am posting photos at and writing about my experiences at
