Action Ducks

I was walking through a nearby forested park the other day, and I caught an interesting sequence of images. There is a large lake in the middle of the park and there’s always lots of ducks and seagulls there. At this time of the year it’s especially beautiful, as the autumn colours on the leaves give the waters of the lake a patchwork of green and gold. 

Concrete, Glass & Steel

I’ve always been quite fond of textures and patterns. I find that, even in the seemingly harsh and cold medium of concrete and glass there can be beauty. I spent a few hours the other day in one of the newest parts of Dublin City, where there are lots of modern buildings as well as ongoing construction, and the light was just right to really emphasis the aesthetics of these elements.

Street Photo Diary Issue 18: NY&DC Edition

A few years ago my wife and I spent a few weeks in New York and Washington DC. I had a great time there and I took the time to get lots of photos. While I’ve posted many from the trip int he past, I was generally focussing on the more “Travel” kind of photos. Recently I was going back over these images and I realised that I have shots from the trip that would fall into the “Street” genre. 

Fields of Grass

It’s been a weird few weeks. I’ve been dealing with some health issues since June, and it’s been taking its toll on me, both from a photographic point of view as well as a physical and emotional one...The upshot of this is that I haven’t been able to get out as much as I would like to because of a lack of energy and generally feeling rotten. But the outside has been calling me, as has my camera....Over the weekend my wife and I took a walk through a nearby park. This is a huge park with forested areas and lovely open spaces. There’s even a wild meadow like field in the middle of it. 

Georgetown, Washington DC

Over the last little while I’ve been trying to sort out some of the ever sprawling mess that is my photo library. While sorting through a drive falloff images, I found a lot that I had either forgotten about or wasn’t happy with the way that I had originally processed them. One  particular set was from a trip I trip I took to Washington DC a few years ago, and in particular to the beautiful suburb of Georgetown. 

One Shot: Swan

I was walking through a park in Dublin city the other day and there were swans swimming around in the pond that was a feature of the park. As I watched I noticed that  there was this small stretch where the pond itself was mostly in shade, but the swan was being lit by a beam of light from the dappled rays coming through the trees above. Coupled with the symmetry of the Swans reflection, I thought it made for a nice image!
