Approaching Orange

Underground in Glasgow last year. Waiting for what the locals call ‘The Clockwork Orange’. It’s orange and it goes around in a circle. Don’t ask too many questions, I didn’t. A decidedly more pleasant commuting experience when compared to the London Underground; Something I’ve become all too familiar with in the last couple of years. …

Nom for visitors

Yes, I know, very heavy handed with the processing again. I’m going through another one of those stages of throwing sliders around aimlessly and not caring much about the end result. I’m sure it’ll probably culminate in bypassing lightroom altogether and uploading directly from the memory card. Possibly. Another from Dublin Zoo photowalk that took …

Hide

Thanks to all that turned up for the unexpectedly sunny outing to Dublin Zoo today. So sunny in fact that it appears I came away with a bit of sunburn. Really enjoyed my first time there but unfortunately I appear to have left my sharpness at home that morning. All the more reason to go …

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 …

Clipped Wings

As a lover of all things gadgety, I couldn’t resist visiting the Concorde that sits baking in the New York sun. This Concorde is now a very cramped tourist attraction. I never would have realised how small the cabin is/was inside until you have to walk around inside. Not for those with fears of flying …

Rust Bucket for Dust Bucket

Taking the opportunity to go back over an entire lightroom catalog after moving it all to the new computer, I realise I\’ve still processed very little of New York in 2009. Need to get moving on that, and well, lots more besides.

Honey, I’m Home

The Airfield Farm Photowalk. Not all landscapes or flowers. Oh no. Speaking of photowalks, get yourself over to www.photowalk.ie and take a look at the details of the West Cork photowalk in June. Then sign up for it.

Blooms

Airfield, at the beginning of the walk. Managed to get this before being run out of the way by a troop of girl guides or brownies or whatever they were. Nothing special about it, I just liked the colours.

Growing Up Easy

Music to grow up with in the beds at Airfield farm. Brilliant photowalk today, loads of great people and the first photowalk I think I’ve ever been to that was an all-inclusive family event for many photobloggers that usually end up coming out on their own. Many thanks to the staff at Airfield for accommodating …

Beyond Porchfield

After promptly educating us, as he so often would, about why a certain place was called what it was, we strolled on down past Porchfield toward Newtown. The incredibly sad news came earlier this evening that Danny (of www.porchfield.com) passed away earlier today. A man of endless kindness and furious wit, he will be sadly …

The Bloggies

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?
