Venice

I’m just back from an amazing week in Venice. I mean, the week itself was probably unremarkable, in the life of Venice, but the place is amazing. Quite unique, as far as I know. From the moment we landed at Venice airport, to the moment we landed back in Dublin, roads, cars, traffic, motorbikes, bicycles,…

The Virgin Media Night Run

There’s a unique atmosphere about the city at night – a heightened, more focused and intimate experience. For their second year of sponsoring the Virgin Media Night Run, we wanted to evoke this feeling, coupled with the adrenaline rush of participating and competing in one of the most exciting sporting events of the year. The…

Hello to VR support on WordPress.com

I’m delighted to see that support for 360 and VR images has now been added to wordpress.com. I can now integrate my 360 images with the rest of my work. Here’s a couple of images I made last Saturday (10th Dec 2016) on Sir John Rogersons Quay in Dublin, Ireland. Click on one of the…

Great South Wall

I’m not getting many opportunities at the moment to get out and take photos, but I have managed to pop down a couple of times to the South Wall, cos it’s near work and on my way. There a small, but nice little beach along the road to the wall, and it’s a nice walk…

Out in the cold

It was cold, but kinda nice looking this morning, so I got off the bus on O’Connell street, instead of staying till the end of the line at Stephen’s Green. I walked along the quays, crossing on the Sean O’Casey bridge. I couldn’t feel my fingers after taking photos for a few minutes. These are…

Down by the water

Went for a swim* in the canal today, and took a couple of shots. * not really.

Canal walk

Not the most inviting day today. But I managed to overcome my inertia and head out for some fresh air at lunchtime. I walked up to Leeson street and back along the banks of the canal. Very wintery feeling weather, but still with a lot of autumn-y colour.

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.

Too cold for roses

The world was looking pretty gorgeous this morning and I was tempted to stop a few times on the way to work. I passed up a few really good locations. I did eventually stop as I passed Griffith park – it was too cold for roses, but I stopped to smell them anyway. The car…

Cold bottoms and night lights

‘Crisp and bright’. That’s how you might describe this morning. I wouldn’t quite go as far as to say  it was ‘fecken freezin’, where I was standing, but I’d be pretty sure that would be how the bottom of those boats felt. I kinda liked the faint glow from the lights on deck – they…

I don’t normally do this, but…

I see a lot of beautiful sights (and plenty of ugly ones too) on my daily commute. A 50 mile round-trip through the countryside of Meath, Dublin city and the coast at Sandymount. It takes 35 minutes each way on the bike, but I normally allow myself 30 minutes or less, so there’s rarely time to…
