Walking in my Shoes

Now I’m not looking for absolution
Forgiveness for the things I do
But before you come to any conclusions
Try walking in my shoes

Photos from The Market Bar (where they do lovely and good valued tapas, in Dublin. I just had to take some photos of this stunning wall. The bar is like a hidden den; just a door on a wall in a busy market which leads into this massive, high ceiling venue.

Fifteen minutes of fame

I’m very happy to day that this photography website/blog featured on the very cool Ilovephotoblogs.com website yesterday. The title they uses was ‘Combining a Love For Music and Photography- Patrick Dinneen’ which sums up my website perfectly.

If you want to spend some time browsing through a very wide range of photoblogs and photos of the day then head over to their site.

The Small Hours (in honour of Donal Dineen’s radio show)

In a. Galway,b. Abstract/Arty,g.Colourful by admin / February 1, 2012 / 1 Comment


Donal Dineen (my surname namesake but with only one ‘n’ in Dinneen) was the dj of the late and great show ‘The Small Hours’ on Today FM which finished up in December 2011. Donal began on Today FM with ‘Here Comes the Night’ in 1997 before moving to a later time slot for The Samll Hours in 2004. His shows featured, shall we say, not daytime playlists music. Electronic, alternative, indie and a whole lot more. a link to his Today FM blog and playlists.

He introduced me to a wide variety of new artists that I’d never have heard of otherwise, including Mount Kimbe, Mark E, Dalek, Efterklang, Monolith and many more.
(This seems like an obituary to Donal Dineen but he’s very much still alive)

The title of his late show The Small Hours is the perfect title for this photo. Just in case you didn’t realise by now every photography in my blog section has a relevant music title.

I’ll be doing a lot of photography in Depeche Mode*

In l. Text by admin / January 30, 2012 / 2 Comments


I think that every photogrpaher has a few lenses on their wish list, for me it was a macro and wide angle (10mm) lens. I don’t know how much I’d use either one but have always wanted to play with them and see what they’re like. I’ve read a lot of people saying once they get a wide angle lens it stays on the body most of the time. I’m sure that if/once I get these two lenses there’ll be more that I want (upgrade camera body from K-7 to K-5).

Anyway, I bought a Pentax 100mm f2.8 1:1 macro lens last Friday, on clearance sale in Currys. I’ve played around with it over the weekend and realise that there’s a steep learning curve. So you can expect a swarm of macro photographs in the next few weeks.

All of up until now has been with a non-dedicated macro lens, either a compact camera or one of my other lenses and cropped.

HP Officejet 7500A printer review

In l. Text by admin / December 16, 2011 / 0 Comments

So I got an e-mail out of the blue asking me if I wanted to try out a printer for a month. Hoax or spam was my first thought but it turned out to be real! This is an honest review and I didn’t feel pressurized to give a favorable review. In fact I was told to publish my blog review without sending it to them first.

Like the vast majority of amateur photograpahers I snap and snap away but virtually no photos end up getting printed, never mind gracing my walls. Anytime I need to print I’ve used an online store. Which is fine but you can’t print photos ‘on the fly’. So this was my chance to try out a free printer and see if it’s actually something that I’d use or would it end up consigned to the attic.

So onto the printer- it’s a HP Officejet wide format printer (prints up to A3 size). And like most printers today it’s also a scanner, copier and fax machine. (I didn’t even look at the fax or scanner.) Which means for a home business it’d do everything you need. And the surprise is that it can work over WIFI. Which is very simple to set up. After using a printer like this I couldn’t go back to a ‘standard’ printer which I have to be connected to by a wire, especially as most people are on a laptop these days.

SETUP: I was a bit nervous about this but it’s as easy as pie. Physically set up in under 10 minutes. Next the challenge of setting up the WIFI. The printer has a touch screen pad that makes selecting options simple. My first attempt at connecting to the WIFI failed and I thought “here we go” but I tried it again it worked.

This is a printer with many features and bells and whistles.
The printer allows you to download HP web apps, including news, games and puzzles which you can print (without a need for a laptop). This could be a good feature but I didn’t even think about it as it wasn’t relevant for me.

Another feature, and a great one, is ePrint. This allows me to print remotely (from smart phones, other laptops!). Think about that for a second. Yes, it is cool and very useful isn’t it? You’re out, take a photo with your phone and can have it printed before you’re even home. It’s simple to set up (I’m repeating that work ‘simple’ a lot); you go to the ePrint website, register the printer with your e-mail address and that’s it.

But it’s not all two thumbs up. While printing 4″ by 6″ or 5″ by 7″ photos was fine the printer couldn’t print 8″ by 12″ photos for me. It gave me an error message, I logged a message on the HP Help forum but didn’t get it resolved. If I had bought the printer I’d obviously had persevered and guess I’d have gotten it resolved.

So would I buy one? I don’t know would I need one that large in size. But as it’s wireless the size really isn’t an option as you can store it anywhere in the house really. It was simple to set up and use (expect for the A4 printing issue I encountered).

Some bits to note
The HP printer stores up to 150 pages.
As it can print sized A3 it is a big beast. But this shouldn’t be an issue as you can place it out of the way.

Happy Sad

In d. People & Animals by admin / December 13, 2011 / 0 Comments

Conor is now 1 1/2 years old/young. Once he hears the word smile this is the face that he puts on. Very enthusiastic and funny but he hasn’t managed to smile and keep his eyes open at the same time yet. Note the toy cars that he’s clutching. He LOVES them, even goes to bed with them in his hands….

Christmas Is Coming, The Geese Are Getting Fat

In l. Text by admin / December 12, 2011 / 0 Comments

So Christmas is just around the corner…
Since I bought a Dslr most birthday and Christmas presents have been camera related. It’s how I’ve managed to get some nice lenses but there’s always one more to get isn’t there? A macro and proper wide angle for me maybe. Oh, and upgrade my camera from a K-7 to a K-5….and a decent ND filter. Once I have them (two years of presents about) I’m sure there’ll be another one that I think I’d like. Like maybe a Fujifilm X10.

Maybe if I won the lottery or if I won a loadofmoney on some online live casino that would let me buy the lenses I want and then some more.

I look forward to the time when my presents aren’t dominated by camera items in a way.
So what camera items do you have on your Santa list for this year?

Lost In Music

In d. People & Animals by admin / November 27, 2011 / 0 Comments

Just in case you haven’t noticed or guessed every post here has a musical title that’s related to the photo(s). Sister Sledge have a song called Lost In Music and it fits this man browsing in HMV, Limerick perfectly. It vaguely reminds me of DJ Shadow’s Endtroducing album cover (vaguely I said)

We’re lost in music
Caught in a trap

Oh To Be, Oh To Be, Oh To Be A Rebel

In g.Colourful,h. Sport,k.Buildings & Architecture by admin / November 23, 2011 / 2 Comments

This is my second set of photos from Páirc Ui Chaoimh, home to Cork GAA hurling and football.
These photos some an empty stadium and shows the patterns and colours on the stand and terrace, which is normally hidden/covered by fans.
The last photo isn’t staged, Conor saw the flag, ran over and started waving it.

Here’s the link to my first set of photos from ‘The Park’ (Páirc Úi Chaoimh).

You’re always so calm and so cool,
Donal Óg just knows what to do,
Mulchay, Muphy, The Rock,
Will just play each minute on the clock.

Sean Og, Ronan and John,
They will just sting you along,
They’re just sheer class on the grass,
Rebels, we watch as they pass.

Gerry O Conor will leave you for dead,
Tom Kenny, he’ll fix you then
The attack starts all over again,

McCarthy wheels at you,
And Neil Ronan he knows what to do,
All they have to do is keep hurling at you.

Oh to be, oh to be, oh to be a Rebel,
We love ye Rebels, you’re so slick and so sharp,
We love ye Rebels with every beat of our heart,
We’ll follow Rebels all the way to Croke Park.

Lyrics taken from here, thanks to cathalosull21. It’s a slightly outdated song now but is from when Cork hurling was at it’s pinnacle (in recent times).

Let’s bring out the Liberty Bell (Shandon Bells, Cork)

In k.Buildings & Architecture by admin / November 19, 2011 / 0 Comments

I was originally going to delete this photo but the more I look at it the more I like it, the view from down a side street. The Shandon Bells (official name Church of St Anne) is the building with the clock in Shandon, Cork City. It’s known locally as the “Four Faced Liar” because each face (four clocks, one on each side of the church) show slightly different times.

Let’s Ring Out The Liberty Bell is a great song by Autamata

Limerick Inner City Life (Goldie)

In i. Black&White,k.Buildings & Architecture by admin / November 17, 2011 / 3 Comments

This was taken from the 7th floor of The Savoy hotel in Limerick City. It’s a view of Limerick (or any city) that most people don’t see or, if they do, pay any attention to. It stands out to me as it’s the unseen side of a city, the ‘behind the scenes’ part without any shiny shopfronts.

On a vaguely related note I always pay attention to the condition of the toilets in any establishment. Sometimes you have an extremelly fancy restaurant/store but the toilets are very basic or even dirty. Which my mum always said to me is a reflection on the establishment overall. If they can’t bother to keep the toilets clean how can you trust them with the hygeine of your food, after sales service etc.
The second photo is just the original cropped and in black and white. I couldn’t decide which I preferred so I posted both.

Full Moon, Empty Heart (Belly song)

In f. Nature & Sky by admin / November 10, 2011 / 0 Comments

Here’s my token photo of a full moon. I think that every amateur photographer has taken a photo of a full moon at some stage.
I checked and the optimal settings are meant to be something like:
1/125 second
f 11 or so
lowest ISO possible

I saw the moon on my way home from work but by the time I arrived home it was already dark so I shoot at f2.8, 1/60 second and ISO 200 at 200mm. Ideally I’d have a longer zoom lens so I could crop closer without losing detail.

Where We Sported And Played- Pairc Ui Chaoimh

In h. Sport,k.Buildings & Architecture by admin / November 9, 2011 / 2 Comments

Pairc Ui Caoimh stadium, home to Cork GAA

Pairc Ui Caoimh a Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) stadium in the Ballintemple area of Cork in Ireland, where major hurling and Gaelic football matches are played and home of Cork GAA. Pairc Ui Caoimh had an original capacity of about 50,000, however, this capacity has been progressively reduced because of safety regulations to the current figure of 43,500.

I’m used to large crowds in Pairc Ui Caoimh on sunny Sundays in the summer and seeing Cork win another hurling or football game. I was walking with Conor, my son there a weekend over the summer and was allowed into the stadium to have a wander around. I know Pairc Ui Caoimh is an old stadium but I was amazed at how basic the changing rooms are (see 2nd last photo).

I’m suprised that Conor (1 1/2) will leave his hat on when he’s outside, his older sister kept taking hers off and throwing it away. This is the first time I used the in built filters in my camera; a Pentax K-7, you can see the effect in the second shot. it gives a nice effect I think. I used to think that any in built filters would just be a novelty but I like some of them.

Music Bands Mish-Mash

colourful music

Seeing as every photo post on this site has a relevant musical title I thought I’d add this post. Tom Dunne of Newstalk today mentioned music bands mish mash and asked people to text, tweet in their mish-mashes. A novel, fun idea and also a way to show what bands you like.
These are some of the ones that I came up with (could do this for hours):
* Emperor of The Sun,
* Empire Of Ice Cream
* Etienne De La Soul Crecy
* The Frank Black and Walters
* The Gomez! Team
* GrooveArmadaRider
* The The Smiths
* British Morrissey Power
* A-Ha House
* The Jesus and Jones Mary Chain
* The Sultana of Ping
* Tom Petty shop Boyz To men
* Modest Mouse On Mars
* Mylo Bloody Valentine
* British Silver Sea Power

The last two are ‘internal’ mish mashes:
* James Brown
* Lambchop

Can you think of any good, clever ones?
Cheers,
Pa

The Answer My Friend Is Blowin’ In The Wind

I find the standard photos of flowers a bit boring (no offence!). With this photo the large ’empty’ space to the right is where I can picture the dandelion is going to be in a few seconds after someone has blown in.

I took this in my front garden early in the morning, leaving my house on the way to work. If any neighbours saw me they must have been wondering what I was up to; virtually lying on my belly in my garden…

Keep The Car Running

In d. People & Animals,g.Colourful by admin / October 17, 2011 / 0 Comments

I was 1/2 thinking of selling my Sigma 30mm f1.4 lens to finance a very wide angle lens (8-16 or 10-20mm). I have a Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 lens which sits on my Pentax K-7 body most of the time so the 30mm doesn’t get used a whole lot. So I decided to play a bit with it at home to see would I miss it. Any time I use it I realise that I like the lens a lot; it’s small, great for low light/very fast and creates great bokeh, even if I have to be close to my subject to get it. So, for the moment I think I won’t be selling it.

At the moment I think I’d like to add a wide angle and a macro lens to my collection and that I’d be happy with ‘my lot’ then. Although there’s always one more lens you want…

Anyway here’s Conor, he’s 1 1/2 now and loves cars, trucks, lorries and makes ‘lorry noises’ and gets excited anytime he sees one. He even doesn’t want to have his pjs taken off if they have a picture of a fire truck on them.

I was in Newcastle recently for a stag and we went to see (the high flying) Newcastle United in action. The Geordies are warm and friendly; here’s some photos of some supporters.

We had a good chat with this couple in The Strawberry, a pub opposite Saint James Park. They live in Stockport but have season tickets for Newcastle and travel six hour round trip for every Newcastle United home game! The man knew his football and had been to over eight Irish football stadiums in his time.

Orange Wedge

A slightly abstract photo of the Galway Hooker sculpture in Eyre Square, Galway. The sculpture on its own looks odd, just a load of red/orange metal bits stuck into the ground. But when you realise that it represents the sails of a boat/ship then it’s something that you can put into context and it stands on it’s own as a piece of art representing old Galway.

Smokers Delight

This is my favourite photo from my recent street photography adventure in Galway City. I asked him could I take his photo and he didn’t mind at all. He seemed very content; sitting outside a pub on Quay Street with a pint and a fag just watching the world go by. The album title Smokers Delight jumped into my head.

I posted two photos; one showing his pint and cigarette smoke, the other one cropped tighter. I prefer the un-cropped one. How about you, which do you prefer?
I think I like this street photography lark; it’s different than ‘normal’ photography. You don’t get time to compose, take multiple photos, check settings etc. It’s more off the cuff and it’s exciting to look through the photos at home with anticipation to see if I got any good photos. (Sad, aren’t I?)

Smokers Delight is a deliciously relaxed album from 1995 by Nightmares On Wax (a.k.a. George Evelyn or DJ EASE)

I’ve Seen A Face, A Face In The Crowd

In a. Galway,d. People & Animals by admin / September 11, 2011 / 0 Comments

Browsing through my photographs recently I realised how few photos of Galway City I have despite the fact that I live in Galway. So I’m going to make a concerted effort to publish more photos of Galway; Galway City sights, Galway life and Galway people.

I’ve been reading and looking at Street Photography recently (Wikipedia:Street photography is a type of documentary photography that features subjects in candid situations within public places such as streets, parks, beaches) and like Eric Kim (http://erickimphotography.com/blog). So these some of my attempts of the people of Galway. The woman in the first photo is a known character around Galway, she ‘chased’/followed me after I took her photo and rambled/threatened me. It’s a bit blurry but still a ‘keeper’.

I suppose any photo with a person in it (especially when they’re not posing) is like a snapshot from a story and the viewer gets a first impression of the person and even make assumptions as to what they’re like and up to.

(The G Hotel, Galway) Goodness, Gracious, Great Balls of…

The G hotel is Galway’s only 5 star hotel. It was designed by Irish milliner Philip Tracey it oozes of luxury, modern design and is great to relax ‘away from it all’.

One of their main features in the hundreds of metal balls hanging from the ceiling in the main lounge room. It has floor to ceiling glass and overlooks Galway Bay. These are what I focused on here but I had to throw in one colour photo to show how loud, in-your-face one of the other rooms is (I call it the Alice In Wonderland room).

This is a copy of a statue that stands in Tartu in Estonia, and was presented to Galway to mark the occasion of Estonia joining the EU in 2004. The two men are unrelated and never actually met, though they were contemporaries.

A lot of tourists sit on the bench between them to get their photo taken, some ‘hobos’ like to sit there too and drink their tinnies.
