Often with photographers you never see picture of the person behind the camera and it’s true with me too. So here’s a rare photo of my at my surprise 40th birthday.* I’m a chocoholic so of course the cake was make of chocolate and had an edible Pentax camera on top.
My wife and I went out for dinner to celebrate her birthday, afterwards we went to Massimos pub in Galway City to meet a friend. There was no sign of him but my wife said to have a look in the backroom and when I opened the curtain I was shocked to see the surprise party waiting. A big thanks to everyone for turning up, hope ye all had as good a night as I did. And a special thanks to Debbie, my wife, for planning and organising it.
* It’s not my 40th birthday until the middle of July but as we’ll be abroad on holidays my wife organised my surprise birthday in advance. I have to congratulate her on all the effort she put into planning the night, contacting friends and somehow managing to keep the whole thing a secret; I was absolutely astonished and loved the surprise.
