Phoenix Park Trees, Visitor Centre

Ok, so it’s the new year blah blah blah………I’ve set myself a wee target for the next month or two.
Some of you may be disappointed by this but I am going to challenge myself and see if I can get through at least a month without photographing any trees in the park. This will rule out any photographs featuring trees as their main focus. I will allow myself to have trees in the background so long as they are not the main feature of the photograph. Now, having set these new rules I should very quickly add that I have also set myself a challenge of photographing as many buildings in the park as is humanly possible in the next two months, so if some of these buildings are surrounded by trees then you will please forgive me the odd misdemeanour.
I know some of you love trees as much as I do so don’t go away, they will be back very soon and I still have a bit of a backlog from the last few months to post. I also have a lovely series of shots from Farmleigh House and its environs to share with you.

My least favourite job in the whole world is scanning photographs and that’s all that is delaying me at this stage. It’s time I taught my three year old son how to use my scanner. Can you just imagine the crazy stuff that would be appearing on the blog.

  1. hehe i take it by the self challenge to not photograph trees.. you are like me and very much like trees
    i’ve just stumbled upon your blog but you take lovely photographs & i espeically like your compositions
    do you only shoot black and white?

    i’ve started a black and white 52 week project this year

  2. Thanks Chloe, you are just too kind.
    You guessed right, I only shoot black and white.
    Two reasons
    1. I have actually never really liked any of my own photographs in colour so I just stopped and developed an obsession with black and white instead.
    2. I suffer from a very mild form of colour blindness called colour deficiency, it’s not actually that bad but plays havoc on the difference between some greens / blues, dark brown / black, navy blue / black.

    Number 2 is the reason behind number 1 I suppose.
    To be honest I have always adored black and white photography.

    Trees are just the best aren’t they.

    Thanks again for dropping by, stay in touch, I’m enjoying your images too.
