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. Back to Scotland for a few days but on the move this time. Highlands & Island(s) specifically. Nice.
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 place last weekend in err, Dublin. Not too used to shooting things that move so didn’t cop that my ISO was set tragically low until we got up around the African plains bit. Ah well.
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 back and take some more photos I guess!
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!
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 or enclosed spaces.
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.
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 our large (40+) group today.
Perfectly positioned to trip any fisherman that’s recently landed their catch.
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 missed by all who ever came into contact with him.
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?
