122/365/2014 – Fire Side
It was a little cool when we returned to the cottage last night so the fire was lit. The photography bug bit hard this weekend and it was nice to sit, relax and stare at the wild Atlantic last night.

I have been shooting this view for a year now and i love what the change in the seasons does for the colour.

Some days its hard to look my 5 a Day in the face knowing that i am about to eat him.

127/365/2014 – Clontarf to the Bull
A day on the computer left me feeling like i needed a walk before heading into the city for a party.
I love the walk from Clontarf to Bull Island – you get all the fresh air you need in about 15 seconds.

128/365/2014 - Welcome to the Jungle
128/365/2014 – Welcome to the Jungle
I really do love the botanical garden. There is great coffee and cake and even on the worst days you can escape into the tropical glass house and pretend you are exploring the rain forests.

The mutt gets walked most nights but some nights are a little prettier than others.

Film_Leader_Retrieval_35mm 131/365/2014
Have you ever needed to extract a 35mm leader that you had rewound into the canister. I do this a few time a month to let me re-shoot rolls of film that have been sent to me for film swaps or when I do something silly.

132/365/2014 - Sheba
132/365/2014 – Sheba
We think that Sheba is about 13 or 14. When we got her she had been a in a few different homes and we were told at one stage she had been pretty badly treated. We happened to pass a pet rescue place in Drogheda one afternoon and just stopped in for a look.
Sheba came home we us that afternoon. She now enjoys a great life and is the boss of the house. One of the great joys of having her around is that she has the energy of a puppy but the wisdom of an older dog.

Here we are again, again-

D. H. Lawrence suggests
…….but better die than live mechanically a life that is a repetition of repetitions……

I kind of like this view of my city and am happy to try and do it justice….rinse and repeat….

A day out at the beach with good friends gave me lots of models to shoot. I had my iPhone and a small compact film camera with me but a buddy of mine gave me a 5d Mk2 to play with.

Sunsets and walks in the park with the mutt is a nice way to end the day – any day.

142/365/2014 – Brittas Bay
It is an annual obligation during the good weather to try and make an effort to visit Brittas Bay.
It was an early start but really well worth the sunday morning alarm – we arrived before the hoards of sun worshipers. Had a very please swim, ate a picnic and went home.
Bliss, pure Bliss.
