Strawberries

I’m really looking forward to getting some fresh Wexford strawberries: They are the best I have ever tasted. My wife used to argue that Finnish strawberries were the best, but she has finally come round to admitting the truth!

Poultry Section

Photo taken at the Bannow & Rathangan Agricultural Show 2010 – on one of my long expired last rolls of Kodachrome (1993). At the time I was under the influence of street photography, looking for interesting situations that maybe included an element of humour.

I still have a few rolls  of Kodachrome left in the fridge. I only wish I had shot loads more with it while it was still processed by Kodak.

Lone Surfer at Sunset

The clocks went forward on Saturday night, and now we have extra daylight in the evenings: Great for sunset surf sessions. Conditions were good; gentle offshore breeze, 3-5ft swell, and, after a grey day, the sun finally made an appearance.

SB_20140331_0063_webGotta get myself a longer lens. These were all shot on a 50mm Summicron, which is a great lens, but something like a 90mm or longer is really required for sports photography if you want to get right in the action.

Architectural Photography: House Renovation, Dublin.

I recently photographed a completed architectural project by David Shannon Architects. The project comprised the renovation of an old coach house which originally formed part of a larger estate.

It was a beautiful day; we got lucky with the blue skies. And the low sun really helped to animate the external facade. Pity the cherry tree wasn’t in blossom!

All of the above photos were shot on a Leica M9 rangefinder with 24, 35, and 50mm lens. Perspective correction was carried out in photoshop.
