Another part of Holland

Struck me last night while clearing out some old photo sets from Lightroom, I’ve uploaded relatively few photos from various trips to Holland. These are from 2009 and have sat pretty much unseen since I took them. I’ve blogged a couple of them in the past but neglected the rest. Inkeeping with my attempt at uploading sets instead of singles, here’s the full set. Well, here are a few of them anyway. The rest of them are tucked away inRead More

Flowers Made Easy

The Flowers Made Easy photowalk yesterday in Dublin went off without a hitch, thanks to all the folks at Flowers Made Easy and those at photowalk.ie that made the trip possible. To sum it up in as few words as possible, it was like a trip to the Botanic Gardens but without all the required walking. Also, as you may have been tipped off by the photo above, Fran was knocking about with some foam props. There was also anRead More

Almost Liberty

November 3, 2010 Canon 24-70, Canon 5D, Landscape

I’d like to get back to NYC for a few days. Maybe Boston for a few days. Just to roam and be free

Speckled

September 20, 2010 Canon 24-70, Canon 5D, Dublin, Event, Macro

Sculpture in the Botanic Gardens. One of the lesser barmy ones.

Going Up

Getting to the summit the easy way, inside a rather small gondola. In the distance, where we started in the car park. Not pictured, where we were going. A beautiful sunny but cold day and a fantastic view awaited us at the top. The more I look at all the Scotland photos in lightroom, the more I want to go back. Soon.. soon..

August 16, 2010 Canon 24-70, Canon 5D

Somewhere in NYC, downtown I think. Going through all the shots from New York that I still haven’t processed, now nearly a year later.

Lovely Hurling

Out with the home made band saw and the equally home made sanding belt. One template, a bit of craft sawing and sanding later and the finished product is good enough for Croke Park.

Carbon Footprints

Owners waiting for the parade to start at the Stradbally steam rally last weekend.

Heartbeat

July 30, 2010 Canon 24-70, Landscape, Scotland

i.e. what I’d go back over there in. I think I left my phone charger somewhere between Stirling and Fort William, I better go back over and spend 20 years looking for it.

Jacobite

After climbing into the cab, met this cheery chap ready to dispense technical information and little known gems of wisdom relating to the line and the train. While the other several hundred tourists were taking photos of various bells, whistles, levers and dials I talked him into doing a quick bit of modelling. Cue for today’s photo taken from Julie, who\’s also posted some fantastic chuffing (or should that be chuffing fantastic) shots.

Overcooked Hills

Off to that castle again tomorrow so won’t be posting over the weekend. Looking out on a contrast ++ sea from the top of Goats Path in West Cork. Just before winding down the other side of the hill into Kilcrohane and onto the headland.

Gardens of Napoli

Almost, but not quite… Photowalkers doing their thing during the June get together in west Cork. This particular stop was Garinish Island, one stop after Gougane Barra but one before the impromptu ‘it’s too early to go drinking yet’ trip to Sheeps Head. One of the best photowalks yet, if only because this time I know the area I was traipsing around. Half way there now, only 6 photowalks to go!

Home from the Sea

Galway, by the water.

The Bloggies

March 29, 2010 Canon 24-70, Canon 5D, Event, Galway

Back from the blog awards in Galway on Saturday. Well, actually got back yesterday afternoon but ended up sleeping for the rest of the day. Once again an epic session organised superbly well by Damien and his regular band of helpers, assistants and whatever you’re having yourself. Roll on IBA2011 I guess?

Chelsea Hotel

November 2, 2009 Canon 24-70, Canon 5D, Event

On arriving in the city and settling into the hotel (not this one though), what do you think the first thing we did was? Took a stroll around the streets in the direction of B&H of course…

Sunville

September 30, 2009 Canon 24-70, Canon 5D, Cork, Event, People

On Summerhill north during the Cork Photowalk, put together by Damien, Pat and Donncha. Huge thanks to all three, very successful event as usual. I can only assume this lady was charging up the hill in training for the ladies mini marathon that took place the next day in the city.

Here be Dragons

September 28, 2009 Canon 24-70, Canon 5D, Wicklow

An overdue visit to Avondale a couple of weeks ago. Everything is starting to turn various shades of brown and gold, much to Julie’s delight. Almost time for a drive back down the Sally Gap with some velvia and the wide lens.

On Another Day

September 23, 2009 Canon 24-70, Canon 5D, Event, Landscape

Do any of my visitors watch Rescue Me? It’s been one of my favorite things on TV since it started so it was a bit of a buzz to stand here (this scene is used in the opening credits). It was more about simply standing there than recording it artistically in a photograph…

Phoenix

August 19, 2009 Canon 24-70, Canon 5D, Event

Reading a little bit too much into that very entertaining bonfire on the grounds of Charleville castle during the meetup a couple of weeks ago.

The Elf in the Windmill

August 13, 2009 Canon 24-70, Canon 5D, Event, People

In Kinderdijk, in a windmill, looking out a window at… another windmill. Or two. Here she is, no doubt making that ‘photo taking’ face. Concentration I tells ya!
