You’ve already seen the ‘famous’ stairs of Charleville Castle. Here’s the other one. Taken during the visit last year.
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
An evening stroll on the deserted beach at Spanish Point in Clare. This reminds me that I need to break out the Bronica again very soon.
Distant relative of the swans, here stands the most menacing sheep you’ll ever lay eyes on. Not small, just far away. Menacing all the same though
Another from Newtown Cemetery in Trim and the first of the film. Took alomst as long to remove the dust from a few shots as it did to scan three 36exp rolls. Should really clean the scanner.
Making my way downstairs from yesterdays shot. There’s something about this area of the castle that both the Bronica and the panf really, really liked.
Finally developed and scanned a couple of rolls of PanF 50 from Charleville last year. Wouldn’t ya know it, grabbed the Bronica, stuck it on the tripod and headed straight for the stairs. Predictable or what?
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.
From The Burren, last year. Was going to say ‘back when it was sunny and calm’ but I don’t think it’s ever either of those over there. Shot on Ilford PanF 50 with a red filter. Improperly exposed and not a lot done to try and rescue it from that.
A couple taking a breather during a walk around the woods at Ross Castle in Killarney, Kerry. This was back when the weather was nicer. What is it some people call it, summer? Sounds familiar.
So it was heard; Or rather overheard at these very cliffs that this tower (O’Brien’s Tower) is in fact the highest point in the world! THE WORLD! Where, you may rightly ask, did this groundbreaking nugget of information come from? Why, from middle-aged American tourists of course. I never knew that before. Someone better tell all those fools that climbed Everest that they should have been on the west coast of Ireland instead. So I’ve been aching to get more black & white stuff up here, inspired in no small way by Tommie who’s been posting the most amazing B&W’s lately. Need to look through and develop more of the stack of PanF.
Looking back through some of the film I’ve actually managed to scan, I can’t understand why I’ve blogged so little of the Burren. This is Poulnabrone Dolmen, a popular spot for the tourists…
Taken for my sofobomo project, this is in The Burren in Co. Clare. During our weekend on the west coast, I spent a bit of time searching for the right wall, with the right patch of grass beneath it and the right patch of clouds behind it. I’m pretty happy with how this one turned out.
So I’ve not been around here in the last few days. Updating has gotten rather slack and I blame at least 67% of that on trying to get my SoFoBoMo ’09 book done on time. Time which runs out tomorrow. Thankfully, that’s no longer an issue. My PDF is all built & uploaded, a whole day ahead of schedule. Miracle! Now I can (have to) get back to regularly updating here. The backlog of photos I have to process (and indeed negs to scan) is quite bewildering.
I don’t put a lot of thought into things sometimes. Planning ahead with any great certainty or in any massively well thought out way isn’t my bag baby. That might explain why I forgot my keys when I went down to the car park before work one morning… And locked myself in only to be rescued by an unwitting neighbour some 15 minutes later.
James’ street, just before it turns into Thomas street. What in previous years would have been your last chance to buy flowers of sweets for a friend or relative in St. James Hospital up the road. Nowadays, you can choose from any one of 45,000 spar or Centra shops in the immediate area.
From the people who brought you Tetris, now comes a whole new way to challenge your perspectivability and cromulence. Sorry, no I lost it there at the last minute. It’s the same building, but at a different angle. Outside the city hall in Dublin.
Just outside Dublin castle during the meetup a couple of weeks ago. Have been very much living an off-line existence the last few days, back from a couple of days in London and another chance to fly with the “we’re as pleasant as we’re going to get, ALRIGHT?” Aer Lingus.
It was odd, I felt drawn back to this. Previously visited in digital, this film version is for those out there that like their photography a little more analog. Now I can’t decide which one I like better!?!
For someone apparently very important in the greater scheme of things. Lots of empty reserved parking spaces at Dublin castle. Well la de da!
