Ask me anything

I am a hobby Photographer who's day job most definitely is not photography. I live and work in Dublin. I mostly do landscapes but ultimately I love taking pictures of people though I am rarely satisfied with the results.
I have been taking photographs for many years but it is a hobby that I have periodically walked away from, when I feel I am achieving little, only to find myself drawn back to it.
I love the fact that it can be instantaneous but once you sit at the PC you can nuance your capture much as an artist nuances his painting to show you how he sees or feels the world around him.

Icelandic Horse on Flickr.Driving on the Snæfellsnes Penninsula in Iceland I spotted two horses in a field that had a dramatic backdrop with a nice waterfall. I decided to try and take a photo or two from a distance. However when the female horse saw me she came running up to me. Icelandic horses are not in the least bit timid and activly seek out human company. She definitely had arab blood in her and was a most beautiful blonde colour with a white mane. She was really friendly and very obligingly struck a few poses for me. All in all a wonderful experience.

Vitaly Churkin Russia’s UN Ambassador learns a lesson every Irishman already knows. Do not aggravate a red haired Irishwoman…..and expect to get away with it. Samantha Power US Ambassador to the UN  gives Churkin a piece of her mind after he vetoed a UN sanction vote against Russia. Absolute classic photo !
