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)
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.
