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.
Really fun to shoot the members of the 332nd sitting of the Trinity college Philosophical society. The Phil is the world’s oldest college society having been founded in 1683. The society is steeped in tradition and is housed in the oldest building on campus the GMB (Grand memorial building). The society runs many events throughout the year mainly involving debates and discussions with high profile guests. This year saw the honorary patronage medal being awarded to film director Martin Scorsese. Thanks again to the Phil for the opportunity to shoot them. Check out some of my favorite photos below. The rest can be seen on the Phil’s Facebook page here.
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.
