Staying Dry in Dublin

Staying Dry in Dublin



I’ll leave it to you to decide what this ones about.

Sometimes you can’t avoid being spotted, and in a place like this you can end up taking the same people from different angles, but nobody complained.



A Tasty Morsel in Dublin

Meeting House Square is home to the Photographers Gallery which is always a target when I visit Dublin, and the square is usually busy with food stalls and restaurants.

I like the glance from the guy on the right. Not sure whether he’s looking at the girl or their food!

An admirable demonstration that my photography is going to pot.

Pot is not the name of an exhibition gallery, rather it is the place where my ashes will be placed if I post anymore like this.

Fun, hey?

I like galleries because the lighting is often theatrical. I don’t like studio portraits because the lighting is often boring.



Inside, Outside

Inside, Outside


People looking around and making conversation as seen from one of the delights of the vintage car show in Kirkcudbright on 28 August.

When I look at vehicles from this period I realise how much our thinking has changed since then. Each item was designed and made separately and then assembled. The very shape of the cars from that period demonstrates that one person designed and made the seats, another the petrol gauge, and another the switches. Integrated thought in design is one of the amazing things that has evolved over the past 60 years. It is now the designer who tells the engineer what he wants rather than the engineer who tells the designer what he can have.

They still don’t get it right though and I curse the people who designed the vacuum cleaner that I currently use, and it’s from a company that supposedly rethought the whole concept……. Oh, sorry, I’d better not go on about that or we’ll be here all night.



Jet Stream over Knockbrex

The last of my series of pictures taken just west of here near the village of Borgue.

You can see George making his way back up to the coast road after camera club members had visited the broch on the foreshore. It’s an area that I hope to explore further and I can only hope for some more days like this when the sky is making such a magnificent contribution to the scene.
