Minus one, plus one

There are some things we do well in Meath, and fog is one of them.ย I was out for a few hours earlier, and it was bloody cold. Got home, lit the fire and made a big dinner of steak and roasties and I was about to sit down and get cozy when I looked out the window. Thick fog, with a golden glow from the streetlights. So I had to grab the camera and head out. I ended up spending about an hour and a half taking these shots. That’s a long time to be basically standing still in minus one degrees, but I think it was worth it and the fire’s all the nicer now that I’m back inside.

Electric Picnic 2014

Had a great time down in Stradbally last weekend – managed to have fun, see some brilliant acts AND keep my camera safe. I left late on saturday night and (regrettably) missed some other gigs I’d have loved to see – particularly Portishead, but hey! there’s always next year. Flushed with post-festival buzz, I’m already looking forward to a full 3 days at EP2015 ๐Ÿ˜‰

Rathmines of a Saturday morning

 

 

I pop in to Rathmines most Saturday mornings. Flying visits, frantic parking-place searches. These are some moments caught. There are always far more moments that get away, but that’s good – leaves something for next time.

Swan, Swan, Hummingbird.

Ok, not the last one. Here’s a few shots taken over the last year or so along the Grand Canal in Dublin between portobello and Mount Street, or thereabouts.
