Internet explorer is crap.

Just found out that my blog looks horrible in Microsoft's Internet Explorer. The text is not in the right place in some posts.
It looks fine in Firefox and Opera. I haven't checked other browsers yet but I recommend viewing this blog in Firefox or Opera.
More photos coming soon. At the moment I'm in Portugal and I've already taken some beautiful shots in Lisboa.
Thanks to all those people from all over the world who have stopped by to look at my blog. I've had vistors from 94 countries so far. I'm curious to see if and when I will reach 100 countries. :)

The Great Limerick Run 2010

These are some of the photos that I took for ILOVELIMERICK.COM of the great Limerick run which took place on Sunday the 2nd of May 2010. It was the first full marathon in 25 years. There was also a half marathon and a 10km run. From top to bottom: The first shot is taken at the start of the full marathon. The second  shot shows the winner of the full marathon. The third and fourth are shots of the start from the 10km, taken from a crane. The fifth shots shows runners keeping warm. The last two shots are crowd shots taken at the finish.

Daithi Rua

I was invited to a CD presentation of Daithy Rua's new CD: "Black Fox" in O' Ceallaigh's pub in the city of Groningen. Daithi is a musician and songwriter originally from Offaly but now living in Belgium. He is a nice guy with a great voice. His CD is absolutely lovely. You can find more information on Daithi Rua here

trip to Groningen

I'm just back from a trip to Groningen in the Netherlands.  I was there to visit friends and family. It's also the city I was born in.

Istanbul, Türkiye

One of the cities I really want to go back to is Istanbul. I met some friends,  two lovely ladies, Güler and Esen, I had made through the internet for the first time in person. We became friends in real life as well. Evrim, my friend who is a teacher of English in the Black Sea region, had come with us to Istanbul for a few days. I met with her brother, his girlfriend and a few friends and also with Esen's family. I also met Güler's teacher of English, Roger: an Englishman who lives in Istanbul. We went to a teagarden several times, smoking a waterpipe while sipping apple tea, eating simit (kind of bread) and chatting. What more can one want.
All my Turkey shots are dedicated to all the lovely people I met in Turkey. I will carry all those moments, the country and the people in my heart forever. 

Çok teşekkür ederim.

About the shots: Eminönü is an area that really comes to live at night with all the food stalls where they sell traditionally prepared fish.

Happy 2010. A frosty start.

I took a little break from posting on my blog. I was still posting but mainly event photos on Facebook.
Time to make a fresh start (pun intended) in 2010. We had some lovely frosty mornings and last Saturday, I went outside and just took a few photos.
For those of you who are wondering about some of the shots. Well the clothes pegs are obvious, then there is a shot of light falling on part of a iced up spiders web through the gap of a fence and there is one of an iced up drop on a spiders web, well, what's left of the web anyway. All the shots were taken outside of my house.
