This takes me back to 2008. I was invited to work on some initial concepts for Food Should Taste Good. This idea combined the ingredients – one written ingredient/one usage. Feels like so long ago!
—Experimentation can generate interesting ideas.
The beginning of my post about Dublin. I will update this post soon, but for now…
We stayed in Tallaght, just South of Dublin, with stunning views of the Wicklow Mountains and opposite the Shamrock Rovers Stadium.
Before booking the trip, we assumed Dublin would be full of quaint little Irish pubs with fairly traditional small towns. Surprisingly—Tallaght didn’t seem to have the quaint pubs we were hoping, however, the more central to Dublin you were the more obvious it became you were in Ireland! Staying only a few nights, we managed to soak up some atmosphere in Oliver St. John Gogarty, enjoying a bit of foot tapping and hand clapping to traditional Irish jigs as well as a bit of shopping on Grafton Street!
Always drawn to the coast; we also traveled North to Howth—a small fishing village. Enjoying the hillsides and walks along the piers to see Ireland’s Eye and the busy harbour:
On the drive back to my hometown, the sun shining bright and the scent of freshly cut grass—it surely did feel like the start of summer (shame it’s now Autumn). The temperature saying otherwise, with heaters on full, I decided to pulled over to capture this beautiful dream like scene in Culter, just outside Biggar in Scotland.
This weekend we’re off to Dublin. Traveling down to Holyhead in the early hours of the morning, we are hoping to have a few hours in Wales before catching the ferry over—must make a planned schedule to make sure we do all the touristy bits in Dublin. Of course, from various suggestions the Guinness Storehouse is at the top of the to do list!
My niece is 2 years old today, she is a little angel. Where does the time go…
Inspired by Kim Høltermand, captured last night down at the Whitehaven Marina and today featured on Flickr Explore. The lighting was perfect, the clouds were glowing from the sunset creating a perfect reflection on the still water.
I am always excited when someone contacts me to use my work for their project or asks me to submit an image for publication. The time lapse of a flower bud has been chosen for article submission as an Exhibit, an academic submission.
- The sequence was created in October 2007, a simple series taken from a TV advert, retouched and tiled up to show the time lapse in stills.
Being creative for a living is wonderful and with two of my most favoured hobbies too.
Iyla I am sorry, you will look back at this when you’re older and tell me off for posting. Here, you are in awe of Curious George.
