What an utterly miserable day it is here! Rain, wind and the greyest of skies. Halloween too. A manufactured corruption of an Irish tradition. Meh!

But life goes on. Clouds part. Sun shines. Here is an image taken in Copenhagen. In the distance you can see the sun.

Kiss that future

While in Copenhagen, I met Thomas Toft. If you have not checked out his photography, then you are in for a treat. A wonderful photographer and a great guy. One evening we cycled out to this wonderful location. Thanks again, Thomas!

God will send a sign. When he does be prepared.

unstitched horizons
the sea’s belly will not swell
its yawns stay unheard

Endeavouring to create and maintain a blog

I guess the thing about having a blog is that you need to update it, to add to it. To adhere to this, I guess I need to take more photographs, write more about them and post it up here. And I guess I need to be consistent. I am not sure how easy this will be for me to do, but I will try. It won’t be a daily thing. I will be doing very well if it is a weekly thing. Time will tell. As my wife said – “you have two flickr accounts, an instagram account and now you are adding a blog!” Perhaps, I am crazy to take this on, but….

Yesterday I ventured out with both cameras (iPhone and D7000) into Cork city centre. I had an idea of what I wanted to shoot and how I wanted to shoot it. With the D7000 I wanted to get more shots of people blurred out as they walked past a blank wall; shots I would later process into two colours. With the iPhone I wanted to blur it all up. Post as I go to Instagram and later choose the ones I like and app those snaps us with Snapseed.
The best of plans, but did not work out as I wished. The first obstacle was the drizzle. It did not appear to be raining, but a blanket of drizzle had descended. The second hindrance was my reluctance to stay for too long in the one position to get a photograph. I do not like shooting in my hometown and as a result I hurry too much. Getting back and looking at the handful of shots I managed to get I am frustrated that I did not persevere and try to compose with more care.
Impatience! The next time.  Here are a selection of the instagram shots from yesterday. The DSLR shots will go up some time in the future.
