Ok, so the story behind this photo goes like this……….
Here I was wandering around my favourite place in Dublin and I stumble upon this very large big top style tent well hidden in the trees. The tent was just at the side of the visitor centre in the Phoenix Park and on the day I was wandering around there was lots of activity with trucks, forklifts and burly security men. At first I thought it must be some kind of kooky circus setting up in the park but I thought the fencing and security was a bit too tight for it to be just a circus, I also kind of wondered why it would be so well hidden in the trees.
Anyway I proceeded to set up my camera and started snapping some very long exposure infra-red shots of the tent as it was being assembled. On several occasions I noticed security men, all dressed in black, passing me by in a very casual just having a wander in the park style. One or two of them would stop and have a quick chat, it was pretty obvious they wanted to know exactly what I was up to. I’m happily clicking away thinking the lads are just a little bit too concerned about what I’m doing so I finished shooting and decided to hightail it away out of the area, just in case.
On the way out of the park I bumped into a friend of mine and he asked me if I was going to see the much advertised Tom Waits show in the big top tent………………….DOH !
