Before I move on, I need to write a little note on our first two nights stay. I found Maison Laudiere (as many people do) on the UKGSers website. They have a seemingly very loyal following and everyone that posts about them leaves glowing reviews. Their location was put into a google map at an …
I will eventually round up the photos from the Cork photowalk a couple of weeks ago. This is the last of them, another visit to Camden with the rest of the gang this time. It’s pretty much the same up there, although with the notable exception of several new rooms now being open to the …
While Julie was doing her “turn this way, turn that way, smile” thing in Iveagh Gardens last weekend I took the opportunity to tag along and skulk around the gardens getting better acquainted with my X100. It’s not quite there, but it’s getting there. I spent most of the day at ƒ2… I’ve only used …
The Flowers Made Easy photowalk yesterday in Dublin went off without a hitch, thanks to all the folks at Flowers Made Easy and those at photowalk.ie that made the trip possible. To sum it up in as few words as possible, it was like a trip to the Botanic Gardens but without all the required …
An obvious plant in the Botanic Gardens.
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.
It’d been so long since I last used the macro lens, I forgot what it was capable of when focusing manually.
Sculpture in the Botanic Gardens. One of the lesser barmy ones.
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.
A very well loved tractor waiting to be put back into use near the pier at Doolin. Burren photowalk of course!
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.
A gorgeous day for photographs (of ditches) somewhere between Bleskensgraaf and Streefkerk. There was a windmill there, if that helps you locate it.
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.
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.
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.
The Transport Museum in Glasgow. Great spot, lots of lovely old bikes! Well, a few old cars too, as you can see here.
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.
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 …
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.
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.
