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

So I’m back for another natter about the world of photography. Well I haven’t really got anything new to hopefully inspire you with, but I do have a couple more photos which I took myself in various places and I have to admit I’m quite pleased with them.
First off is a photo of the coastline near my very own hometown. I took this shot in Killiney one day when coming back from the city centre via the DART line (basically a train :0) ).
For a lot of people this shot might not mean anything but it just reminds me of coming home and times spent on the beach with friends, etc. over the years. It’s still a beautiful spot.
Next up we have a shot I took from a trip to Thailand with friends. Just after arriving on the super stunning Island of Phi Phi, I spotted this bunch of boats and thought this could end up being something like a card you’d find in a lot of newsagents.
Finally I have two shots that I think may help people get some kind of scale to their photos, well at least that’s what I can think they can portray.
First up is a shot from Regent’s Park in London. It was around the time of that serious snow from last year; I was walking in the park and could not get over the way the frost had settled on everything. I spotted this bush and decided to try get a shot along the hedge line. The background is a little weak for my liking but it’s the way all the leaves almost seem illuminated from the frost that does it for me.
And lastly we have this shot I took of Rocky one day. I have always been a fan of shots with something in the foreground being out of focus – there’s just something cool about this that makes the shot seem like it’s a secretive thing you’re being allowed to see in a strange sort of way.
Bon Voyage & Muchos Luvos
