Saint Patrick’s Day Parade, Galway
This post is from last year but it’s one of my facourite photographs from 2012 and Saint Patrick’s Day is coming up again soon so I’m reposting it.
I know I’m a bit late with posting this but better late than never with my photo from Saint Patrick’s Day Parade. I was at the parade with my family so could only manage a hopeful snap here and there (not easy with an almost 2 year old on my shoulders…)
Luckily for me I had perfect timing with this photo and captured a nice reflection of the crowd in the musician’s trumpet.
Post title taken from the song ‘Hit The Parade’, from the album Bedlam a Go-Go by Something Happens, an Irish band from the late 1980s – early 1990s. I remember seeing them at Lark By The Lee in 1984 or 1985, a free music festival in Cork. Lead singer Tom Dunne had a very successful radio show on Today FM but unfortunately has now moved to a weekday morning slot on Newstalk. With Donal Dineen and Tom Dunne gone from music shows the Irish airwaves are a lot poorer for quality music
Always look for something differnet.
These abstract water reflection photographs were taken on the Boards.ie Photowalk in Dublin at the beginning of December. We were walking through the lovely Stephen’s Green in Dublin and I noticed the colourful reflection of the trees in the water. Stephen’s Green is a great nature escape in the center of Dublin City and is worth a stroll to have a break from the rush and busy city center outside.
I didn’t know which one I prefer so I posted two photos
Time Stands Still is a song title by the Irish band Something Happens.
The post title are lyrics from the song ‘Zebra’, from the album ‘Teen Dream’ by Beach House.
I recently played Galway Bay Golf course, a very pleasant course even if tough. I played the best golf of my life with 9 pars(!) and 40 points (playing off a handicap of 18). It was a beautiful day without a cloud in the sky and summer weather even though it was only March.
The air was so still that there wasn’t a ripple in the lake and the trees were reflected perfectly. This was shot with a standard compact (Samsung WB2000). I included two photos but personally I prefer the first one.
Post title is taken from the song titled ‘Reflection’ from the album Inertia Creeps.
