War Memorial

It’s a while since I was last down in the War Memorial park taking photos. In fact the last time was probably some time in 2010 on a trip down there with Julie to photograph all the trees shedding their blossom. It’s somewhat appropriate to post this now given that I’ve we’ve gone back on the ol’ running (or at least shuffling along at slightly faster than walking pace). The War Memorial park is one of the top locations forRead More

Hobbies and Hiatuses

March 8, 2012 Beer, Canon 5D

Or “a not so brief description of what I’ve been up to” possibly. Buying and drinking beer apparently. I have also been making it though. This was the fridge a couple of weeks ago after a particularly interesting visit to Sainsbury’s outside Belfast. I’ve tasted about half so far and there’s only one I took an instant dislike to. Yes, it was the Badger. I also took the opportunity to further my home brewing exercise with the purchase of aRead More

New Moon

December 23, 2011 Canon 5D, Canon 70-200, Dublin, Landscape

Grabbed this on my way out the door to work yesterday morning. Had I actually thought about what I was doing, I’d have put the 70-200 on Julie’s 5D2 and not my own 5D. It all went a bit wonky in post processing. It’s a bit of an odd feeling, going from shooting a photo to processing, uploading and posting within a 48 hour period. Worse still, I was almost tempted to post it last night. I don’t know ifRead More

Colours of Autumn

December 13, 2011 Canon 24-70, Canon 5D, Macro, Wicklow

My first post in December and I’m back with a couple of photos and a large bag of excuses. I became the newest splitter at the end of November when I left my old job and started a new one. I think either I underestimated how busy I’d be or grossly overestimated the ‘settling in time’ I’d end up taking because it’s been crazy pretty much since I started. Sadly, updating the blog has been far from top priority althoughRead More

The Office Party

Top of the Rock, September 2009. We were anyway, they were slightly below us. Just after the sun went down over the horizon, this crowd came out to play. Hell of a place for an office party. Hell of a place for a photowalk come to think of it.

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

Jiggered

June 5, 2011 Canon 24-70, Canon 5D, Event

Proof that yes, I did take some photos at the Irish Blog Awards 2011 photowalk in Belfast. Also proof that yes, I’ve been very very lazy in processing them.  I blame numerous things including acute procrastination. A truly beaten wheelbarrow that kind of sums up my mental and physical state after the last 6 weeks or so. It’s been almost non-stop traveling with work, 5am drives to the airport, 14 hour days, incomprehensible foreign languages and all that. I’d likeRead More

Crossing

While taking my time on the way back to the ferry from Derbyshire on a nice sunny morning, I found this place while quite lost. I was looking for a place to buy a sandwich and a cup of tea before hitting Holyhead for the ferry but that’s neither here nor there. For those interested in my sandwich and tea exploits, I did eventually find a shop with marvelously cheap & tasty sandwiches only about 5 mins from this spot. It struckRead More

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

Brightness on the Horizon

December 31, 2010 Canon 5D, Landscape, Scotland

Monsters are vanquished, beaten by a brave knight. Lots on the horizon but can’t quite make it out yet. Onward and upward? Maybe. Time and travel will tell. Happy 2011.

Tumbling in

December 16, 2010 Canon 5D, Dublin, People

Hadn’t been to the storehouse in a while so when we had visitors back in October it was the perfect excuse/opportunity. Yes, I know this photo has been done before too 😉

Fragment

December 1, 2010 Canon 5D, Cork, Event, People

I’m sure all the Cork people will spot what/where this is, despite the lack of detail

Seasons

November 29, 2010 Canon 5D, Dublin, Event, Macro, Sigma 150 Macro

An obvious plant in the Botanic Gardens.

Bread and Water

November 25, 2010 Black and White, Canon 5D, Cork, Event

Insufficient lodgings at the Cork Gaol. I guess hardwood floors and a place to rest your weary head is better than nothing. No playstations or conjugal visits.

November Walk

November 24, 2010 Canon 5D, Cork, Event, Landscape

Sometimes you get nice days in November too. Just in time for the Cork Photowalk.

No More Bad Days

Another view on a previous location.

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

Eyefulls of Soot

Head goes out the window, clickity click. Head comes back in the window with scorched eyeballs. Owidy ow. But worth it.

Standing Still

October 24, 2010 Canon 50, Canon 5D

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