Darkest days

We’re getting close now, to the darkest day of the year. I’ll be happy to be on the other side and heading towards daylight. In the meantime, it’s handy to be able to capture a few nice sunrises at the leisurely time of 8:45am.

Morning phase

We’re getting some spectacular sunrises at the moment. Here are a few shots I’ve taken on Sandymount beach this week. Each day, I arrive just in time to get a few snaps – I really need to get up a few minutes earlier and have a bit of time to do this properly – but…

Still got it

When I started studying photography in college, my first camera was a Canon AE1 Program. After my first summer working in New York, I bought this little beauty – an A1. I’ve had it ever since and I still love how it looks and how it feels. It’s been years since I put a roll…

Weekend at the beach

I always look forward to Easter. It’s the first chance we get every year to spend some time at the beach. This year, it was absolutely freezing and at times, stormier than Donald Trump’s mistress. Here’s how it looked, over the course of 5 days.

Through the looking-glass

I’ve taken plenty of shots of the new incinerator, looking across from Sandymount. Last night (Feb13th 2018), I stopped on the way home to snap them from the other side, looking from Grand Canal Dock. I picked up a few other shots around there too.

I like bikes and I like photography. Luckily, you can do both together. Here’s a timelapse of my commute on Feb 5th 2018, shot with a GoPro Hero 5.
