The beginnings of a new project documenting the traditional and not so traditional shopfronts/pub fronts of Wexford town.
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!
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.
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.
Gotta 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.
