On Howth beach, shooting a roll of Orwo NP20 that expired 36 years ago. Give or take. January 1973 to be exact. I picked a shot that makes it look as bad as possible, but I am quite pleased with the way it came out. Maybe in a few days I’ll post a cleaner example. Film for this experiment in expired stock kindly donated by Julie.
Tara street dart station, where the first(?) boards.ie film meet started. A wide and varied selection of cameras (mostly of the cheap & plasticy variety) came out to play and by all accounts, a great day was had. As I processed and scanned these yesterday, I did notice a weak whimper from my camera bag. On further investigation it appeared that my 5D has all but given up hope of ever seeing the light of day again. Poor little bugger.
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!?!
What kind of stories would this old building tell? It’s been a while since there was a nice relaxing stroll around the city with a few fellow photographers. Met on O’Connell street, ended up walking (via a food market) to Dublin castle, onto Christ Church and finally into the Bull & Castle for some afternoon pints. To be repeated again very soon!
One of the main attractions (as far as I could see and apart from the gravity bar of course) at the Guinness Storehouse. A big mad waterfall, indoors! Long exposuralicious, I think I managed about 8/10 seconds on this one without the guy behind the torrent of water moving very much. Win!
Much later than everyone else has posted more or less the same shot but give me a break, I only developed the film a couple of days ago and I only got my scanner today! Anyway, enough of the excuses. Taken on the docks in Drogheda, part of the way through a weekend meetup by a few folks. Those folks to be named at a later date. Or, they can leave a comment and save me the bother.. Either way.
Otherwise known as the Guinness Storehouse, but this definitely has a bit of a 1970’s nuthouse feeling to it. Taken during the Pix.ie St. Patricks Day festivities and my first visit to the storehouse. Will go back, hopefully when there are less people around.. If that ever happens!?!
Use the hook to grab the very large wooden sections. Swing them through 180 degrees and gently lower them into a channel cut into the concrete. Do that about seven or eight times and you’ve got yourself a barrier, closing one section of the dock from the rest. Think of it like a video game. A cold, wet and potentially deadly video game. With the smell of fish all around.
Confession, St. Peters Church, Drogheda. Nobody around to hear it though so continued on. One from the meetup of a few fine folks over the weekend. We couldn’t resist going into this church, possibly only after being told that there is a rather old head on display inside. True enough, it wasn’t just a tourist trap ploy to get us inside for a prayer or two.
Swans that aren’t even hungry crowd around a gentleman emptying a carrier bag full of foosty bread into the already murky (mostly from being full of soggy bread bits) waters of the lough in Cork city. Taken back when the sky was bluer, the weather was nicer and the days were hotter and t-shirts were entirely possible. Just to remind you…
Charleville Castle in Tullamore, Co. Offaly. Recently spent a night here as part of the now annual boards.ie event. Possibly not one of the most haunted buildings in the country, but definitely holds the record for the loudest snorers. Next time, bring ear plugs and duck tape. The ear plugs are for me. More to come over the next few days/weeks/months/years.
