So I decided to venture out on our of our days off touring on the “oul” bicycle to get myself a little bit of exercise and to also utilise it as an opportunity to hopefully capture a few more shots for this here blog.
First off I took this shot from behind an unsuspecting couple. I know I know that sounds so creepy but as I said in one of the previous blogs sometimes the most unexpected scenario can throw up some fabulous results. It’s a shame it wasn’t an elderly couple as I think that would have added a bit more weight to the sentiment of two people enjoy an evening sunset together on a park bench.
Of course I did play around with the temperature and tint of the colours within the original photo to come up with the finished product.
I decided not to lurk behind this coupe for too long as I might have heard a siren or two and seen some blue flashy lights heading in my general direction for bordering too much on the voyeuristic side of things. So I saddled up again in search of something else to capture.
I managed to find a fairly secluded spot further on and by this time the sun was setting very fast and it was beginning to leave me with limited options.
I did although manage this shot which is a little more cluttered than most but I have always found tree branches to be very interesting against a background. The way they almost look like cracks in the scenery as if it was being viewed from an aerial position or something. It’s a bit hard to describe if I’m honest but hopefully you get the gist of where I am going with this.
Until we click again
Take Care & Much Love

Ahoy there, photographites!
May I wish you all a very Happy New Year and welcome back for the third instalment of my so called PhotoBlog.
I’ve always had a bit of a penchant per se for trying to snap shots of twinkling lights and so forth. I have found they add a kind of warmth to a shot – this explains why controlled lighting is always used in proper photo shoots. That way the photographer can see the shot beforehand and tailor the lighting to his needs to achieve the shot.
I took this in a small ale house while back in Dublin over the Christmas period. It is only taken on an iPhone as my camera was out of action due to a battery issue – bloody batteries! – but still gets the desired effect.
Here are two shots I took from a short tea and biscuits break during a rehearsal before heading back to Ireland for a brief tour.
In the first of these shots I love the way the black and white squares open it up and soften it at the same time. I found the use of black and white shots on the day to be the best as the lighting in the room itself is fantastic. It cast some beautiful shadows that brought the shots to life, as seen in the second one of Ross tipping his cowboy hat which we found in a cupboard.
