My friend Jim Leonard has been taking photographs in his home town of Ballymun since the 1980’s. As part of the 50 years of Ballymun celebrations he has been invited to display some of his portraits in the Axis project space.
There are 18 beautifully shot portraits on display that go some way to capture the unique spirt of this area.
Delighted to have one of my images chosen as part of this exhibition. Please come along and have a look if you can.

Also I can’t find the time to delete content or work out how to resolve the issue.
Today is one of the days when I’m very glad that this is what a problem looks like in my life.
Have a great weekend everyone 😁
Last weekend we had some guests to stay with us in Dublin while they explored the city. We are all film photographers so we played the usual game of show and tell with our various cameras. This had me haul the Mamiya down from my dark room to pass around and play the game of “guess the weight”. I had a film back fitted and seemed to have a couple of shots left on the roll so I made some portraits.
Every time I develop film from this camera I am delighted with the results. Looking in the view finder makes the whole world look like the set from a movie. I enjoy the massive clear negatives that it provides and printing the big in the darkroom is an utter joy. This is a pretty random selection of shots that I have taken with this camera and I’m mostly posting these to motivate myself to bring this camera out more often.
Despite the weight of the beast I love the results.
I’m home alone this weekend so have decided to make one of my favourite dishes to cheer myself up. Since I am on my own I decided to make it with a camera strapped to my head.
Its a variation on the classic Indian Gobhi Masala.
Onion, tomatoes and ginger are blitzed in a blender and added to fried cauliflower. I have no idea why but that vegetable has been in short supply.
So be honest – should I make more of these videos?
