Soft Funishings and Totalitarianism

It’s Ok…

leave a comment »

It’s ok to eat baked beans. It’s ok to eat pasta and cheese. It’s ok to eat plain toast, drink black coffee, tea with milk. It’s ok. It’s ok to eat in your car, walk in the park, watch people passing by. It’s ok to window shop. It’s ok. It’s ok to aspire, it’s ok to play monopoly. It’s ok to have a trade, an education, a work ethic. It’s ok. Sometimes enough is enough. It’s ok to value your health. It’s ok to be imperfect. It’s ok.

Car Parks

leave a comment »

A car park in West Dublin, sex and isolation seem strange to see in context. Yet there it was a spent condom in a hotel car park and an empty security box smack in the middle of the car park. A banal, hum drum, everyday encounter. The emptyness yet routine function of the security box and the condom were not lost on me. Both used, but was there a promise of more work in the presence of one or both?

Fleeting Moments

leave a comment »

The lovely thing about the Leica is panning at slow speeds. With a lens like the 35mm everything is just sharp enough when panning. I know the latest superduper auto everything could do this as well at the kind of shutter speed this was taken at, but there is something satisfying with hitting the arc just right and getting it in one shot. Picture shot with Leica M8 and 35mm Color Skopar.

Dublin 8

with one comment

Yeah, I love Dublin 8, From Inchicore into Thomas Street, it’s all original Dublin. If ever you wanted to tour pre-Celtic Tiger Ireland, here’s where you’d go. Pictures shot with a Leica M8 and 21mm Elmarit Lens.
