Landscapes 1.

I haven't posted any landscapes yet so I will show you some autumn shots from Ireland.
These photographs were all shot in the south-west of Ireland.
The first one is of the Paps mountains in County Cork. They are called the Paps of Danu which means the Goddess Danu's boobs. It doesn't take a lot of imagination to see why.
The other photos were all shot around Killarney in County Kerry, with the exception of photos 6 and 7 (from the bottom up) which were taken near Kenmare in County Kerry.
The house in the 8th and 9th photo is Muckross house.
I only added the last 3 top photos on April 30th 2008.  
They were also taken at the in September 2007 like the other shots.
I just hadn't edited them yet.

Alternative Miss Limerick.

Hi everyone.
In September my girlfriend and I went to the Alternative Miss Limerick: a drag pageant.
We were there to cheer on a participant we know and who won in the end. It was a great night.
I posted the whole series in a Flickr account and added the link in the top right hand corner of the page. Click on the link to see the series.
January 20: I added a slide show. You can click on the photos to go to the series and see them bigger.

People 6.

One of the things that keep fascinating me is reflections. Sunglasses make for interesting reflections in combination with portrait shots of the person behind them. I showed one in the first people post. Here are three more. The first one was taken in Florence, the second one in Pompeii and the third one in Barcelona (from the bottom up)

The 4th photo is of a street entertainer taking a break and was taken in Lisbon.
The 5th photo was also taken in Lisbon.  Both photographs were done up a bit in Photoshop.
The 6th and 7th photos were taken in Naples. I liked the way the smoke becomes part of the photo.

Nature, macro photography.

Besides having the right equipment for the job, macro photography takes a lot of patience and determination. The nice thing about it is that you don't have to travel far. These shots were taken in our garden.

People 5 (events, local, St. Patrick's day parade)

This year was the first time I was able to attend the parade in Limerick. Normally I'm in the Netherlands for Paddy's Day.
Most of these photos were taken at the assembly point just before the start of the parade.
The traditional music group and the fire eater were fringe activities on the day.

People 4 (events, local, Rocky Horror)

The city of Limerick is quite a happening place. One venue that has a lot to offer is the Belltable theatre/cinema and art centre: These photographs were taken before the screening of the Rocky Horror picture show on 04-02-2007.
