I was in Dublin a couple of weeks ago and I wanted to visit the famine memorial. It’s a series of statues depicting poor unfortunates wandering along the banks of the river Liffey looking for food or hope. I added a tint for a little more drama

Those face’s

Last weekend I was with friends in Dublin. I took this when we were with a guide in Phoenix Park. All the people in this shot I know. But take a moment…I know what’s going on, you don’t there’s a story here…I’m not telling. I’ll just say it wasn’t staged. I just shot into the sun. When I got the shot onto the Mac at home it was one of those shots you overlook at first but this has grown on me for a week now. The lens flare is very pronounced but in this shot I thinks adds a certain something…and those face’s

This looks like a very simple everyday shot. The significance lies in where it was taken. It’s just a padlock on a bit of exposed rebar. This just happens to be the Berlin Wall. Let’s not build walls anymore.

For this weeks contribution I thought I’d leave my holiday shots and share with you a very fresh picture I took last Thursday. I took it while attending a whisky tasting hosted by the Caledonian Society of Norway. This is a shot of the lecture holder Prof. Robertson Wellen. I asked him to stand by the window as the room was a little on the dark side before the event. I’m pleased with the result so I thought I’d share it with you all…..by the time you read this I should have sobered up. Have a great weekend.

Meet Poul (Paul). If I had a twin soul Poul would be it. Even his wife says so. Despite our age difference we just click when we are together. I hope to be just as active when I reach 85.

Beach Huts in Black and White

From a summer holiday a couple of years ago. The local beach near to where my sister lives in the UK has these small huts which are well maintained, and function as a home away from home for the lucky few. I liked the clouds that day they always can be used to add a little drama to a shot. I deliberately took a low angle and shot upwards . I love the diverging verticals of the huts too like they are being squeezed ever so slightly.

The Tour of Norway passed close to my doorstep on Wednesday this week. Being I am a big cycling fan I placed myself where I knew they would have to take a sharp lefthand turn. I lay in the grass with my camera ready and shot off a load of images. After the leaders and the main Peloton had blasted past a straggler from the Uno-X team came into view. He threw his empty bottle away and that was my souvenir of the day…plus this shot. So whomever you were (I didn’t get your number) thank you.
