Seasons

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

An obvious plant in the Botanic Gardens.

Puzzle Pieces

October 11, 2010 Canon 5D, Event, Macro, Wicklow

The only thing saving you from a scenic yet deadly fall from the cockpit of the 1948 US Army Cub at Newcastle Aerodrome. The proprietors pride and joy.

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

September 20, 2010 Canon 24-70, Canon 5D, Dublin, Event, Macro

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

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.

Make Tracks

June 8, 2010 Event, Macro, Panasonic LX-3

A very well loved tractor waiting to be put back into use near the pier at Doolin. Burren photowalk of course!

The Perfumery Gardens

June 6, 2010 Event, Macro, Panasonic LX-3

Took off to the Burren Perfumery on Sunday afternoon for some cake and a quick stroll around their (fairly compact) gardens. If you asked me to find the place again, I may struggle. Nice spot though.

Of sunny days and foreign jaunts

A gorgeous day for photographs (of ditches) somewhere between Bleskensgraaf and Streefkerk. There was a windmill there, if that helps you locate it.

Amateur Hour

April 28, 2010 Dublin, Macro, Panasonic LX-3

Making a cappuccino after I got home from work. Also, getting to grips with the wonderful lumix LX-3 I bought a few days ago. Amazingly good, for a compact camera.

Blooms

April 27, 2010 Canon 5D, Dublin, Event, Macro

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.

The Pull

February 4, 2010 Canon 5D, Dublin, Macro

Another from the other day down in 3FE on Middle Abbey Street. All aspects of the perfection creation process covered! Instead of posting all the shots one by one and drawing it out over weeks, here they are.

Not made like this anymore

January 27, 2010 Canon 50, Canon 5D, Macro, Scotland

The Transport Museum in Glasgow. Great spot, lots of lovely old bikes! Well, a few old cars too, as you can see here.

Rough Times Ahead

January 21, 2010 Canon 50, Canon 5D, Macro, Scotland

An all too unsure if I should be there or not walk around the prep area before an evening of stock car racing in Cowdenbeath. You may have guessed, due to the decor in the photo, that Cowdenbeath is in Scotland. That is all.

Bods at the Bots

January 3, 2010 Canon 5D, Dublin, Event, Macro

The snowy, icy, massively fun photowalk at the Botanic Gardens in Dublin earlier today. It was cold and somewhat slippy but a small price to pay to come away with a collection of photos of ‘everything with snow on it’. Thanks to all who participated, hope to see you all and more on the February walk!

Welcome in the Year

January 1, 2010 Canon 5D, Diana, Dublin, Macro

A quick stroll around the grounds at IMMA this new years morning to capture some of the lingering snow with the Diana fisheye and Canon adapter I got for Christmas. Me likey.

Pushing Daisies

December 6, 2009 Canon 50, Canon 5D, Dublin, Macro

Daisies, getting on a bit. This was only a couple of short months ago. Back then, Christmas seemed like an eternity away. I didn’t let things like buying presents for loved ones concern me. Err, I really need to get started on that.

Ball of Weird

November 3, 2009 Canon 5D, Dublin, Macro, Sigma 150 Macro

Don’t know what else to call it. Maybe ‘Hairy Red Snakes’ or something similar. An odd plant at Airfield Farm in Dundrum.

Polaroid’s Day Out

November 1, 2009 Canon 5D, Macro, Wicklow

Julie’s first day out with the land camera at the national garden exhibition center.

Look Busy…

October 28, 2009 Canon 50, Canon 5D, Macro, Wicklow

Detail in a headstone caught while passing through the graveyard at Glendalough. So many headstones, so little time. I need to get back out to Glasnevin.

Bike Parking

October 23, 2009 Canon 5D, Cork, Event, Macro

Chained up to the railings outside the Odlums building on the docks. Possibly a bike, possibly something else entirely. Eh… Maybe a large, rabid turnip? Whatever it was and however rabid it was, it’s long gone now.
