Abstract water drops. It looks vaguely like a map of the world I think
I was wandering around Dublin before a recent Ireland football match and was in a nice indoor market where this vintage clothing store was. One wall was covered with dark clothing, heavy metal etc. t-shirts. Amongst them all was one baby pjs with red and pink love hearts on it.
For Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day or ‘just because’?
I tried my hand at a few abstract photos at the recent Ireland vs. Macedonia game in Dublin.
One reason is because I was sitting far away from the pitch it limited the amount of ‘proper’ sport action photos that I could take so I though I’ll try something else. I have three photos here, the first one is my favourite, I feel that it kind of convays the burst of energy when Robbie Keane is sprinting for the ball.
Exposure 1/6th of a second to achieve the blurry effect
The last two aren’t even that good I think but I’m just posting them anyway to show what I was trying to do with them. If I could have zoomed in on a player closer and kept him sharper/in focus then I think they’d be better.
I took this long exposure picture standing on a bridge overlooking the motorway in Walldorf (near Heidleberg), Germany. The railing made a perfect substitute tripod. My fears were my camera dropping onto the road or someone coming along and spotting an easy mugging!
This is the third series of photographs from the recent Limerick City photowalk. This lot are a mixed bunch, my favorite of them is the fake flower necklace discarded in the wasteland.
Bow down before the one you love:
Once was loved:
Part two of my Limerick City Photowalk. The theme of this group of photographs is urban. I think some of these photographs show that you can find a picture anywhere/in mundane places. I like to try to shoot stuff other than the standard snapshot of cities (landmarks, main sights etc).
Some pictures of birds during the snow. The first two are very similar, I just wanted to show what a bit of editing does. I cropped tighter for the second one so the picture is filled more which I think looks better. I could have come up with a lot of titles, such as ‘I’m still not talking to you’, ‘you talking to me’, ‘bird(s) on a wire’, etc. The last one is just an evil looking crow.

At work one of our current competition categories is ‘Abstract’.
These photos are two I took at home tonight, one a Rothko copy and one trying to convey a human soul.
The sunset through my back door reminds me of the Russian-born American abstract painter Rothko.
Human soul- This one was just messing around but I kind of like it. It’s my breath, taken standing outside my back door in the (very) cold. The photo on it’s own it very forgetful but when you associate it to a human soul escaping a dead body then breathes (no pun intended) a whole new life into the photo.
And my first attempt of long exposure:
I had an overload of potential titles for this picture:
Wouldn’t it Be Nice?
Money, money, money, it’s a rich mans’ world
Opportunities, let’s make lots of money
All I need
A swimmer getting ready to stop and change over for the cycling leg of the Galway Triathlon.
A house reflection in the river Corrib, Galway and a house in a puddle.
Overhead wires. It reminds me of a maths question in school, if the angle of the isolysis triangle….
My laptop ‘working away’ like a busy bee. It reminds me of when I was young(er)- my brother had a Commodore 64 computer. When a game was loading we’d leave the room as a large vibration could interupt the loading. The sound of games loading was similar to the early-days-internet-dialup noise and could have influenced Aphex Twin.
“I’ll do graffiti if you sing to me in French, What are you doing here if romance isn’t dead”
Mind your mouth as you walk with me,Take care ooh as you cross the street”
I saw this park bench when walking through a park in Berlin and Maximo Park just popped into my head. I always wondered what’s correct grammatically; does one ‘do’ graffiti?
Post title is the name of a British Rock Band Maximo Park and a song title of theirs ‘Graffiti’.
Taken on Berlin’s U Bahn. I was hoping that nobody would walk around the corner or from behind as it would ruin the picture…and I could be mugged.
These remind me of the film/movie Jacob’s Ladder.
