Beautiful Boy (Darling Boy)

Beautiful Baby (Darling Boy)
Close your eyes, Have no fear, The monsters gone,
He’s on the run and your daddy’s here,
Beautiful, Beautiful, beautiful, Beautiful Boy,
Before you go to sleep, Say a little prayer,
Every day in every way, It’s getting better and better,
Beautiful, Beautiful, beautiful, Beautiful Boy,
Out on the ocean sailing away, I can hardly wait, To see you to come of age,
But I guess we’ll both, Just have to be patient,
Yes it’s a long way to go, But in the meantime,
Before you cross the street, Take my hand, Life is just what happens to you,
While your busy making other plans,
Beautiful, Beautiful, beautiful, Beautiful Boy,
Darling, Darling, Darling Conor.

Suffer Little Children* (Bad grammar strikes again)

Bad grammar sign

* I have to explain that the picture title is the title from a song by The Smiths and no bad intentions on the kids.

Just walk on by

I think I had more potential song titles for this photo than any other.
Broken Down In Broken Town
1/2 Way Between The Gutter And The Star
Everything’s Alright When You’re Down
Where Did You Sleep

If I see you tomorrow on some street in town
Pardon me if I don’t say hello I belong to another,
it wouldn’t look so good
To know someone I’m not suppose to know
Just walk on by

Wet hair day

Looks funny but if you think about it I suppose cycling 20km and running 5km with long wet hair isn't the best option.

Parklife (Galway Greyhound Track)

In a. Galway,d. People & Animals,h. Sport by admin / March 5, 2010 / 3 Comments

I was at the Galway Greyhound track last night. It”s very hard to get a good shot of the dogs (they”re so quick and I didn’t have a fast zoom lens). These are my best shots from the evening. I’ll go back again once I have an (expensive) fast zoom (70-200 f2.8 hopefully)

Thank You For The Good Times (In memory of John, my dad)

In d. People & Animals by admin / March 4, 2010 / 1 Comment

John, my dad (I always called my parents by their names) passed away 10 years ago today.
This is a photo taken on his honeymoon with my mum, Ute in Egypt. I’ve always liked photogrpahy, must have gotten the bug from my dad. I remember one birthday many moons ago he gave me an slr as a present but all I saw was a big, clunky camera. So I was disappointed and would have preferred an easy-to-use compact. Looking back now I realise that he had my best interests at heart and probably wanted to teach photography to me instead of me just snapping away with a compact. I wish I could thank him now but can’t so instead I think fondly of him when I’m taking pictures.

Simple Pleasures

A tourist in Galway city enjoying a leisurely afternoon sitting outside a pub. Galway has a nice laid back, relaxed vibe to it. It’s not a large city (more like a big town) but it’s a place I love.
