Here’s some photos from the Galway Races Summer Festival. It was only my second outing with my Sigma 70-200 f2.8 sports lens so I’m still getting to grips with it.
They’re far from great, not even that good. I was there for 2 races only (free in for last two races) so I didn’t have much time to plan where to stand etc. So most of the photos are from the same vantage point.
Galway Arts Festival
The Galway Arts Festival is running at the moment. There’s a good range of entertainment at the Galway Arts Festival with the highlight (for me) being Misterman, an Enda Walsh one man play staring (Corkman) Cillian Murphy. The musical line up this year was uninspiring I though but I also heard that the budget has been reduced massively. (Two years ago Spiritualized supported Primal Scream!).
I made a collage but also added the photos individually as I think the motion effect is seen better in the larger photo.
If you’re visting Ireland during July it’s worth a trip to Galway for the Galway Arts Festival; the whole town is in party mode.
Blue Room is a song title from The Orb
Some photos form a building site in Parkmore Business Park East, Galway City. It’s right opposite where I work so I’m going to try to go back and take another bunch of photos there as soon as I get my new camera body. I sold my Pentax K-X and bought a K-7 but won’t have it for another few weeks.
I like the idea of a ‘photo-essay’ blog post, it turns a post into a kind of ‘story’ and I’d imagine gives the viewer more of an insight into the story behind the images
