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.
It has been a busy few weeks since I got back from Newfoundland but I’ve finally managed to go through the last of the photos from the vacation and especially the ones from Trinity. I love that little town, have to go back there again next year. This photo of some fishing nets left on the dock of an old abandoned shipyard. Trinity proper is almost a little too perfect, all nicely preserved for the tourism market so it was nice to find this shipyard and take some photos there.
For the last 6 months I’ve been back and forth to Italy with work. Terrible how real life gets in the way of hobbies isn’t it. You might think that Italy would be a great place to take photos but I don’t get much time to go out. The hotel is a little away from town and it’s usually dark by the time we finish work and leave the office. Still last week I woke to a very unusual winter wonderland. It shouldn’t be snowing this much this time of year but one morning the whole area was blanketed over night. It didn’t last long but it was pretty while it did.
