Seasonal Warning

I accidentally drove over this unfortunate party-goer last week in Terenure. He had been crossing the road in an apparent attempt to get to the Dodder River, when despite my best efforts at avoidance, he came in contact with the front, passenger side wheel. He was clearly inebriated at the time and his end is a salutary warning to us all this Season not to overindulge !

Architectural Photography

Dundrum Luas Bridge with perfect lighting and backround sky. The sense of steep perspective emphasizes  the great height of the concrete columns.

Red Plate

A very simple image can have a strong visual effect !  I was struck by the unusual red hue of the plate and the beading effect along the edge. This is the type of shot which would make a good backround for a magazine article about cookery etc.

Child's Eye

This was taken in a hotel in Naas beside a large  bay window. The light reminds me of the luminous
natural lighting used in paintings by the Dutch Masters. No added flash or reflectors were used. This
photo along with two other close-ups was put into a narrow horizontal gold frame.

Bushy Park after heavy snow in January. The snow has stuck to the tree trunks, adding to the Arctic
athmosphere. In the backround you can see some goalposts .

Book Cover

This is a photo which was shot originally for possible use as a book cover. It subsequently turned out to be
perfect for the above author's latest book. The colour saturation in the shoes was increased, the sand was darkened and finally, the corners were vingnetted to increase the overall effect.
