From capturing amazing views of the capital on the sunniest of days, to exploring the beautiful intimacy of an un-posed photograph, this account has gone from strength to strength.

Originally using a mobile phone to document her monochrome findings, Sarah now uses both a camera and her phone to showcase Dublin at its finest.
