Realignment

Facebook, two weeks from now and my account will be deleted. Linkd In is next. My blackened toes and moments of clarity in-between evenings imbibing cans of Devils Bit have brought me to the simple and sweeping realization. Now is now, now is gone. Now is now. Everything hinges on now.

The Leica 50mm Elmar

with 2 comments

The Leica 50mm Elmar is the country cousin of the 50mm Summicron. But it has something special. Shooting with it takes a similar élan to using hands to print an image in b&w wet process. It has a long focus throw and while I’ve enjoyed it’s unusual ergononomics, I could never make up my mind about it. Untill I sent it off to Malcom Taylor Leica repair in Hereford, UK. It came back in almost new condition, not bad for a fifty year old lens. So the Elmar is a keper. Beautiful low contrast images. Processing the Leica M8 files in the latest version of Aperture is a painless way to process. More time to shoot, that’s the way it should be.

Blink and it’s gone

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

Acid Rock

with one comment

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

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.

After Obama’s Speech, College Green, Dublin

leave a comment »

When President of America, Barak Obama came to Dublin I was interested in looking closely at how people reacted to the event. I wanted to see if a little of his confidence and positivity would rub off on the assembled masses. I wasn’t dissapointed. Many people had a little glow after the speech. There was an undenialble twinkle in many’s the eye.
