While I was in France I went down to the Dordogne region which I don't know that much. I really like the houses there in the country side, all stone houses with woods everywhere. Unfortunately I didn't any time to take pictures so I only came back with a few photos.
One more week and then I'm going to Paris to work there for about 2 weeks at least. I'm very excited as I'm going to be setting up a new team in Dublin from scratch. Hopefully I'll get some time to go around the city and take photographes, but I doubt it.
Alright, I didn't really go out much this week-end. I blame the Formula One for keeping me home most of the afternoon today! Anyway, here's a picture I took earlier this year when I went to Canada. I quite like this tree standing there looking over the Niagara falls.
After all the stress from the week I'm just wrecked. I think I need to go out and walk a lot this week-end. A bit of sports + photography might help me reduce my stress level, I really need to do something about it... but for now I just need to rest and relax.
Again some pictures from yesterday (yes, more boats!), but this time in B&W. Today's actually as grey as yesterday, but even though the rain could be imminent, I think I'll chance it and go out in quest for more photos.
Today was quite pleasant even though it was cloudy and coming to September I may not see many Saturdays without rain (a bit pessimist I know). Well, here are some shots I took around the harbour in Howth.
That's a photo taken in the west of Ireland. It's normally very green but I prefer it in B&W. It look rainy and empty, which ismore or less the truth really. I think there are more sheep than peole in thois region of Ireland.
This is a shot I took last year, shortly after receiving my SLR. This was taken at the Commitments concert in Merrion Square, Dublin. I changed most of the shots that day to B&W but for this one it didn't seem right.
I want to start entering some competitions in order to keep my motivation and make some progress. The competition I want to enter is organised by Digital Camera Magazine (http://poty2008.dcmag.co.uk/3913562628353997603/2007winners.html). I have low expectations about the results but that way I can't be disappointed. Does anybody know some competitions to enter?
Also, please don't hesitate to comment and share your pictures with me. I'd really like to start practicing on portraits but it's not easy to find the model for it, most people don't like to be photographed!
