Approaching Orange

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. 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.

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!

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.

Beyond Porchfield

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 missed by all who ever came into contact with him.
