Jacobite

After climbing into the cab, met this cheery chap ready to dispense technical information and little known gems of wisdom relating to the line and the train. While the other several hundred tourists were taking photos of various bells, whistles, levers and dials I talked him into doing a quick bit of modelling. Cue for today’s photo taken from Julie, who\’s also posted some fantastic chuffing (or should that be chuffing fantastic) shots.

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.

Happy Place

Julie in her happy place, surrounded by ‘stuff’ to take photos of. Don’t ask me to explain it.

Gardens of Napoli

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!

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.

Chasing Sunset

An after dinner trip out on the coast road to catch the sunset on the Burren photowalk. Lots more to come over the coming days (and even more when I develop the 2/3 rolls of film). Hope everyone that made the trip enjoyed the day.

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.

A sense of belonging

I can’t get home tonight, or tomorrow night or possibly the night after. There are places I’d rather be and people I’d rather be there with. Also, happy 2nd birthday glasseyalley

Beyond Porchfield

April 7, 2010 Canon 5D, Event, Landscape, People

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.

Tune up and warm up for the parade under strict direction.

Paddys Day Paintjob

Preparing for the Dublin parade at Parnell Square. Little bit different this year; Instead of shooting the parade, we got to shoot the before scene.

Natural Habitat

Take away the bugs, toads, give her a pair of wellies and I’m sure she’d be right at home.

The Gangs all Here

March 1, 2010 Black and White, Event, Film, People

Brogans, Trim. After the chilly photowalk came a nice hot dinner and a few cold pints. Neopan 1600 pushed to 3200. Came out quite well, apart from the crappy scanning.

Sunday Stroll

A stroll around the grounds at IMMA earlier today to finish off a roll in my newly acquired Canon A-1. Test passed. No light leaks or any other problems apparent on the negs. Apart from user error of course.

The End Result

February 5, 2010 Canon 5D, Dublin, People

Colin Harmon of 3FE next to one of his cappuccino creations. Yes, I know it seemed that yesterdays 3FE photo was going to be it for a while but no, when I looked at this one I just wanted to post it. Sometimes the light that’s available to you just works. This was one of those times. Now, to print some of these shots!

3FE

February 2, 2010 Canon 5D, Dublin, People

After posting shots from the official opening day of Third Floor Espresso a few days back, Colin expressed an interested in getting a few more done. Just sometimes, this whole photography lark pays dividends! Incidentally, I now realise this is how I wish to spend all my future lunchtimes. Shooting and drinking amazing coffee. Niche in the market?

More 3FE goodness/coffee porn from yesterdays official opening. A cappuccino being born. Yes, two more please. Thanks. Keep em coming.

City Hall

Inside Dublin’s City Hall during a photowalk an absolute age ago. Julie having a chat with Darren while everone else was off lying on the ground taking photos of the roof. Or something along those lines.

Swans of the Apocalypse

Earlier this year at one of the lakes of Killarney. Shot at Ross Castle.

Johnsons Court

December 13, 2009 Canon 50, Dublin, Event, People

The narrow alley that some men love to hate. Lined on one side with jewellers displaying trays upon trays of elaborate engagement rings and other expensive trinkets in their windows. Lined on the other side by a very high wall. There truly is no escape. For your wallet at least.
