We went downtown for the first in ages to see the Busker Festival. Unfortunately we only got to see one act before the rain arrived and I couldn’t get close enough to that act to use my 50mm lens. I did however take some random shots thinking I’d have time to take more later. The one I wanted to post for this weeks #50WithA50 I cant post because I didnt read the labels on the boxes I was photographing and they are certainly not safe for work. Note to self, pay more attention to the subject next time not just the overall scene 🙂 Anyway as a fall back here is another shot I liked of the clouds reflecting in some windows. Hard to believe that within a short time of this photograph being taken there was torrential monsoon style rain and sinkholes appearing on the streets.
Today was Regatta Day in St John’s so we headed down to Quidi Vidi to see what was going on. I brought my camera in the hopes of getting some people shots with my 50mm but it turned out to be pretty hard to use a camera with a 5 year old sitting on my shoulders 🙂 Anyway I still managed to get a few shots and here is one of a busker for this weeks #50WithA50
We were back home in Ireland for the first time in almost 3 years to show off Molly to our friends and family. It’s been way too long but it was great to meet up with so many people. Molly had a great time, she’s a city girl but loved being out in the countryside and for some reason she especially loved cows. My mothers family comes from Cashel so we went over there for a visit. On the road back into town there was a great view of The Rock of Cashel so of course we had to stop to take some photos.
A tulip from Kenmare in Co Kerry. Taken originally on my Canon 40D with a 24-70 L lens. Since I didn’t have my laptop with me I just backed the photos up onto my iPad and later started messing with it in snapseed as an experiment. I liked the result, I still prefer using a proper computer but maybe the iPad is a useful alternative when the laptop is too much hassle to carry around.
