Well, I haven’t posted here in a while as I’ve been adventuring over the summer and have been busy with some other projects of mine.
It was really great to get out with the camera in nature for the first time in ages. Lot’s of beautiful natural things to photograph all around. Some of my favourite subjects to photograph have been mushrooms over the years. They have so much character, grow in the most random spots and look so groovy! If you haven’t seen my other mushroom post check it here. I also caught a really moody looking mushroom-like cloud over the hills!
The barnaslingan woods near shankhill have become some of my favourite to walk around in. With the winter coming in, I’m really looking forward to shooting it when all the leaves are falling and in colour.
Check out some of my favourite shots from the weekend and check back soon for the colourful winter shots!
For Trinity week I went on a guided bird walk of the campus.
I had literally no idea there were so many different varieties of birds on campus. All the trees and hidden gardens create a microcosm for the birds to thrive in. Normally you just see the cheeky Seagulls trying to knick people’s lunches or the feral Pigeons bopping around on one gammy leg. We saw Redwings, Robins, Mistel trush (One was in a nest) Blue tits, Willow warblers, wood pigeons, crows, black birds, Wrens and Magpies.
It wasn’t a particularly nice day out but I managed to snap a few different varities.
It was so much fun to shoot the celebration event of Holi in front square in Trinity College Dublin on Monday. This Hindu Festival represents the coming of spring, victory of good over evil and Love. It’s an ancient Hindu festival and is also celebrated as a thanksgiving for a good harvest.
The sun was beaming down and the crowd were ecstatic throwing the colours in the air and at each other. Trying to get shots off was challenging but all part of the fun! Still trying to get the colours out of my hair and camera haha…
I’d love to get to India some day for the real deal! Pray to Vishnu.
