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?

Moods

Light, sky, clouds, dark, strange colours, contrast, odd composition.
It must mean mood. Not mean mood. Just the meaning of mood, in a picture. Not the, becoming mean of a mood. Ok, just moody. (I was running at the time I snapped this, so t’was not I who was in the mood.)
‘In the mood’ can be good though, a Miles Davis ‘Kind of Blue.’

National Dialogue

leave a comment »

That’s the funny thing about the Irish, they just can’t stop informing ‘the’ debate, any debate. Even the use of command english in everyday life is an excuse for subversion, humour, and illumination. Take the image below. I nearly put the car in the ditch with laughter when I passed this one. how many times have I muttered ‘dickhead’ under my breath as I was cut up on the road. How many times has it been muttered at me. I’d like to raise a glass of tapwater to the person who tagged this sign. Group hug now, for all the bad drivers in Ireland, yes, we are that bad…

Going through Stuff

with one comment

Never having the time, or never making the time to work on personal photographic project is something of a bug bear with me. I’ve a dose of pics, some panoramic for a trip to New Zealand from four years ago that I have to dig out and start processing into usable images. The funky thing is, most of them were shot with a Fuji S1, the original Frankencamera, and this one is a true cliché.
