ain playing a little bit of catch up on my project 52 for the Dogwood 52 Challenge, now on week 12, Artistic: Transportation, our world is one defined by how we get around. Literal or interpretative, find inspiration in transportation.
Again playing a little bit of catch up on my project 52 for the Dogwood 52 Challenge, now on week 11, A landscape, showing beauty in the reflection.
Still playing a little bit of catch up on my project 52 for the Dogwood 52 Challenge, now on week 10 an Environmental / Location Portrait. This is where I can mix a little bit of work with leisure being able to snap my location portrait at work!
So finally I’ve gotten round to shooting week 9, Shadows, and Ill admit its not what I had in mind and not nearly as detailed as I had intended but Studio Cat here seems to think its on so long as I don’t move from my chair.

Week two of the Dogwood52 challenge was to take a standard landscape photo. I’ve shot a lot of landscapes in and around Dublin but recently when I was doing some commercial work on Fairview I noticed the cranes through the mist and golden sunset.
