Barcelona Marathon 2013

The interesting thing about running a marathon is really, encountering the people who have chosen to run it and those who come to support the runners. Barcelona was a great experience, and the stoic yet warm nature of the people was so obvious. I think I’ll run this one again. Any society, I believe, is preserved by it’s own sense of humour, and protest, can be subtle and determined.

Architecture can be said to be emblematic of society, could then interiors lead one to conceive the internal world of the progenitor? In this case the elements within the frame come across loud and clear.

An Experiment

So here’s the thing. The kids are growing up, and, well, Dad is falling behind. How do you strike a spark in the 5 year old mind. He wanted an experiment, and the simplest one was provided by YouTube. Put baking soda in a small bottle and then chuck in vinegar and a n alkaline base reaction occurs releasing CO2. So we completed this by placing a balloon over the bottle and inflating the balloon with CO2. It took a few tries, and it was messy, but we got it in the end. The real experiment had yet to begin!
I filled the second balloon with air and the we compared how they fell. The balloon with CO2 consistently fell faster than the balloon filled with air. By this simple device I could explain gravity, and invisible gases to my son. Complex but easily explained in the end.

So much happens, we live in space. Even if we are unaware. Time is fleeting.  Time is all we have.

Fleeting Moments

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.

Acid Rock

Acid Mother’s Temple, the japanese acid rock collective, rolled into town a few weeks ago. It was a sonic assault in a small room, allowing me to re-engage with my inner teenager. Rocktastic! Snapped with a Leica M8 and Voigtlander 35mm color skopar.

Dublin 8

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.
