I started this blog on a Friday, it was as good a day as any!
One toasted special and one soup of the day later, a friend of mine convinced me that I should start this blog and let the rest of the world see the Phoenix Park through my eyes. The Phoenix Park is a place that has become part of my life in the last ten years, thankfully I now live very close to it so I can visit at least once a week, if not more often.
Some Info About Me
I used to run a record store – and now I don’t.
I was born in ’69 and the last time I checked I was still alive.
I used to be a cabinetmaker but now I’m not, although I still occasionally make the odd thing for my own house.
I’ve been taking photographs since my early twenties. I moved into digital about five years ago but still enjoy a day out with a camera loaded with old style film. I particularly enjoy a day out with a monstrous medium format film camera, there is something very wholesome about carrying around a piece of equipment that weighs far too much for the purpose it serves.
I like to shoot a lot in infra-red, it’s something I became hooked on a few years ago and now I find it hard to take normal photographs.
I am particularly fond of the natural world, it exists out there and its up to us to find out whats going on. I have never really enjoyed photographing people, don’t ask me why, it’s just the way I am. Trees are a real passion of mine, that possibly stems from my love of making furniture, something I started doing since I was a child.
I’ve got a Flickr page with other photo’s in it too. click here
