I took a trip into Dublin city a couple of days ago to take some photos. I did the loop – O’Connell Street, Henry Street, Temple Bar and then up to Grafton Street. The sun was out so there was plenty of shadows to capture. Reflections were also eye catching.
Came across a busker who could play his guitar behind his back, Jimmy Hendrix eat your heart out!
I am a subscriber to Jared Polin on YouTube. He was giving a review about the Sony A9. He challenged his followers to download his raw file to see how impressive it was and to make tweaks to it as needed.
The picture below captures a scene with a sports broadcaster commenting on a soccer game in a booth overlooking the stadium. The camera was able to capture both detail in the highlights (in the stadium) and the shadows (inside the booth) despite there being such a large difference in the exposure between them.
This is Jared’s original file with no adjustments.
Here is my edit to Jared’s file (slight teak)
I use Nikon equipment but Sony have been making great advancements in camera technology. I will have to watch this closely.
Horses are an intrinsic part of a travellers’ life. The prospective changes in the way horse-keeping is to be controlled is causing disquiet among travellers at large. Looking after horses helps with depression with the younger males as well as the more senior among them. The rate of suicide in Travellers far outweighs the settled community by a ratio of 6:1.
The Drive took place on Sunday, July 30, and was in aid of Pieta House. The Travellers meet at the Mitchelstown Road entrance to Cahir and completed the Drive in Inch Field. The field was replete with people wearing white tee-shirts with”Drive for Hope and Change”.
Amongst the speakers that spoke were Brian Dillon, Kerry McCarthy and Love Hate’s “John Connors”.
These pictures were taken a while back but it doesn’t really matter. Why? Because it rained all day today and was very cold considering this is supposed to be our Summer.
Photographers, myself included do like rain, you get wonderful reflections on surfaces, colourful umbrellas, people rushing etc People tend to ignore you in the rain so greater opportunity for candid shots.
