The Scenic Route

August 15, 2018 Canon 50, Canon 60D, Macro, Waterford

Took the scenic Copper Coast route home from a visit to the Japanese gardens in Tramore back in June. More on that front coming in the near future. Just as soon as I’ve fully recovered from the shock of opening my photo library for the first time in months/years.

IMMA

September 5, 2013 Canon 50, Canon 60D, Dublin, Landscape, Macro, People

IMMA is and has always been too damn handy. As I have mentioned before, it literally is the neighbours front garden. If it was any closer I wouldn’t have to put my shoes on to walk over there. Quiet neighbours too, never any trouble from them. They have a couple of wild parties every year and a couple of more sedate ones but I’ve never had to go up there and bang on their door to tell them to keepRead More

Wait, whats your name again? It’s only been [counting on fingers] June, July, August, September, October, November; Oh almost 6 months since I last pressed the export button on a batch of photos. I suppose as long as I post once a year I can still refer to myself as a (photo)blogger in the sometimes polite circles of whippersnappers that know about these things. It seems the more cameras I buy, the less photos I take. The less photos IRead More

Bluebell Hunt

In Cork two weekends in a row (a rare treat) and the promise was made to seek out some bluebells to photograph. Currabinny woods has nealy always been a good spot, something I believe I pointed out on the morning we were setting out to go and take some photos. Without knowing I’d already jinxed the operation completely. Although there were bluebells, there was nowhere near the amount I’ve seen in previous years. So instead, I contented myself with usingRead More

Drogheda in the sun

Severed heads and ice-cream cones, just another day in Drogheda. Looking outside today it’s hard to imagine how I managed to pick up such a bright tomato red shade on all exposed skin yesterday while on the annual Drogheda Photowalk. We met late morning and began the day’s walking tour around the town, which I will admit is bigger than I had previously thought.  From our meeting spot we headed to Millmount museum where we were treated to a veryRead More

Right Shape

Scotland. Can I go back now please?

Standing Still

In the Glenmorangie Distillery just outside Tain earlier this year. Lovely lovely Scotch.

All the people, all the time

October 5, 2010 Canon 50, Canon 5D, Kerry, Landscape

Kerry, stopped to investigate. Open to correction but if I remember correctly, it’s the gap of Dunloe.

Steam train to Mallaig

On The Jacobite heading from Fort William to Mallaig. Pre-set the camera, stuck it out the window and this is the result. Can’t say fairer than that.

James Steps

Stairs of a most peculiar length, each taking one and a half steps to climb. An interesting one to climb after a few pints, no wonder there’s a railing in the middle! Loving that 50 f1.8 on the film body. Oh yes.

Top Deck

February 15, 2010 Canon 50, Canon 5D, Scotland

Trams aren’t made like this anymore. Anyone that’s ever been on the red Luas line could tell you that. In the Glasgow transport museum, best place to go (aside from the pub) when the weather takes a turn.

Neighbours Front Garden

The gardens at IMMA, a five minute walk from home. Not too shabby for a quick stroll.

Trim

No, not that Trim, that\’s the weekend after next. This trim is the one they’ve given the hedges in the IMMA gardens. Testing out how close the 50 f1.8 on the A-1 would focus. This close apparently. Loving the neopan. Next I have to test some 100 iso ilford stuff

Lazy Saturday

No harm in posting one more coffee photo after all the others during the week. Anyway, what good is a lazy Saturday if you can’t pop into 3FE for a swift cappuccino? No bloody good, that’s what!

Table for Two

Another from the first roll in the A-1, this was killing a bit of time in the Powerscourt Center while Julie was oogling some fancy wool in the shop upstairs. “Mmmmm fancy wool” or something close to that was uttered several times. Also “worth every penny” and perhaps one more “mmmm fancy wool” for good measure.

Sunday Stroll

A stroll around the grounds at IMMA earlier today to finish off a roll in my newly acquired Canon A-1. Test passed. No light leaks or any other problems apparent on the negs. Apart from user error of course.

Pegasus

I dunno.. something different? This was lurking in my archives and I’m in a kind of ‘what can I do with this?’ mood. ‘Not much’ is the answer by the way.

Not made like this anymore

The Transport Museum in Glasgow. Great spot, lots of lovely old bikes! Well, a few old cars too, as you can see here.

More 3FE goodness/coffee porn from yesterdays official opening. A cappuccino being born. Yes, two more please. Thanks. Keep em coming.
