A week of photos in Belfast

Last weekend started off with a Chocolate MasterClass at CoCouture before we headed off to London and into the Olympic Park to watch the launch of the Paralympic preparations. While we were out of Belfast we featured a new guest photographer, Julie Mullin (@J_M_Photo) who sent us a photo of College Square East, commonly know as the Black mans tech (anyone know why?). Julie said, ‘It is now closed down but it is one of the oldest buildings in Belfast and one of the known features is the boiler they have in it. It is the only boiler from 1906 that is still in working order, they are currently deciding what to do with it, whether it is going to a museum or sadly scrapped’. Let’s hope they can save it!
We’ve continued during the week with various Belfast photos and it’s been fun selecting which ones to use. We’ve had a Belfast morning with a beautiful sunrise and then a bit of a storm. We’ve had requests for a bus tour competition and a visit to the CocoCola Snow Globe at Victoria Square. We’ve stumbled across the press photo shoot after the sentencing of Robert Black, and we’ve supported and promoted St George’s Market as always (even though we couldn’t get a pitch on Saturday or Sunday!). We’ve had the results of 2 competitions with another 2 in progress, but we’ve also been setting the ball rolling for more competitions to come soon.
Basically, Belfast has been as eventful as always, but that’s it for a week in photo in the City for another week. Keep checking Belfast Times photo feed for our daily Belfast photos.

    Hello,
    I also should’ve said why it is called the ‘black mans tech’, it is because of the statue outside. It is of Dr Henry Cooke who was a leading 19th century Presbyterian.
