This blog was started on 13th May 2013 in order to explore some of my more creative skills that were just waiting to leap out. The format would hopefully provide constructive feedback, positive and negative.
The blog predominantly features photography and, to a lesser extent, writing. Photographs on this site are available for purchase in a high definition format and I would ask that you use the contact form on my Copyright Page for enquiries.
I am based in Cork and love to travel within Ireland and further afield. Being based in Europe I am privileged to able to take a 2-3 hour flight and explore different cultures, tastes, architecture and landscapes. However, if we stop to look all around us, there is plenty of beauty to see in everyday life. I would hope that this blog can underline this through both images and the written word.
With holidays I like to find hidden gems and prefer to take this route and get it wrong on occasions than to ‘play safe’. Once we stayed in an old farmhouse where the walls were so thick it could have been a fortress and the lady running it (who spoke no English) apologised as while all the jams, honey, butter, cured ham etc at breakfast were homemade, the cheese was not – it came from the farm down the road (or perhaps I should say track).
So that’s me in a rather large nutshell (think coconut), plenty going on and all rather exciting. I will endeavour to respond to all comments and thank all those that deem my blog worthy of a follow.
Many thanks for getting this far and have a great life.
