All Things Cyclical

February 3, 2011 Cork, Dublin, iphone, Landscape, People

I can’t remember exactly the exact time it happened or any specific reason but apparently all of a sudden an iphone and two cheap applications have seen my 5D and modest yet highly functioning lens collection abandoned to a darkened corner of the spare room. I’ve never been a kind to practice street photography to any great degree so I don’t imagine that it’s out of convenience. It’s certainly not because the phone is a better camera than a nowRead More

Guinness Christmas

Walking home from work yesterday.

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 😉

Way To Work

December 12, 2010 Dublin, Film, Landscape

One of the regular views on my way to and from work. Not so much lately with the ice, snow and darker evenings though.

Unexpected Beamish

December 7, 2010 Dublin, Film

is unexpected. After being told about a certain pub only 5 minutes walk from my workplace that sells Beamish (or sold it about a year ago at the time this was taken anyway) I had to check it out. And check it out I did.

Out Back

Really liking what that heathen app is producing. Mostly.

Less chat, more banana

A Red Panda waiting to be handed his breakfast during the early visit to Dublin Zoo on Saturday.

Nobodys Home

September 24, 2010 Canon 5D, Dublin, Event, Macro, Sigma 150 Macro

It’d been so long since I last used the macro lens, I forgot what it was capable of when focusing manually.

Speckled

Sculpture in the Botanic Gardens. One of the lesser barmy ones.

Botanics

September 19, 2010 Canon 5D, Dublin, Event, Sigma 150 Macro

From the second Botanic Gardens photowalk that took place earlier today. Weather was quite a bit milder than the previous walk. The macro lens that I haven\’t used in what seems to be about 2 years came out to play again.

Fields of Flowers

September 4, 2010 Canon 5D, Dublin, Macro

Getting ready for the Botanic Gardens photowalk later this month. It’ll be a bit different than the January walk. A few less inches of ice and snow for starters.

Print Shopping

Choosing a print from the thousands on display over the weekend.

Nom for visitors

July 13, 2010 Canon 5D, Dublin, Event

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 untilRead More

Hide

July 11, 2010 Canon 5D, Dublin, Event

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!

Life Size

June 5, 2010 Canon 5D, Dublin, Event

From a little bit earlier in the year at the Botanic Gardens photowalk. Chubby little fecker.

Darrens Donkey

Neither of these two were going to get much in the way of peace until the perfect angle was found. From the Airfield Farm photowalk.

Honey, I’m Home

May 24, 2010 Canon 5D, Dublin, Event

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.
