Micro Four Thirds and Obsolescence

Shoreline, Greystones, County WicklowPhotos by Sean Dwyer 10/08/2016

A obsolete camera, shooting ancient rock.  But is obsolescence a journey or a destination?

That’s a choice every individual must make at some stage in their life.

So there I was sitting in my car…

with one comment

Greystones Coast001So there I was, sitting in the car in a state of inertia.  My wife and kids had gone to the UK to see their Gran and I’m home alone in the village of Greystones, in the county of Wicklow.  I’ve spent the last few weeks on interminable doorsteps and hit a low when I realised; “wait a minute, when was the last time I actually went out and made a picture?”  Being a press photographer, quite often, the job is as much about not photographing as it is about making a picture.

So I’m sitting in the car, in the horrors – had a few during the week with a buddy – “fuck it,” I keep saying to myself. Fuck the whole lot… fuck the job, fuck photography”  This has been going around my head like a swarm of bees for the last few days. BZZZZZZZZZ….. Fuck.

So, it being a Sunday, it thought to myself; “Church, why hadn’t I gone?, again…”

It started to lash out of the heavens, the sun broke through the clouds and, all I could say was: “Thank you God.”
